    Once I initially installed the template the placeholder slider was working.

    I have my home page setup as a static page that includes items from the cart and I have 4 sliders as FPO but they are not showing up.

    Hey, so it looks like you've set your static page to your shop page. Go to settings > reading and set it as your home page.
    Hope this helps!

    Hi Hannah!

    I currently have my Shop Page setup as my homepage. However I still want the slider to show.

    Have you added a slider to your shop page? You would have to do this using a shortcode or a slider widget. What slider are you trying to use?

    I'm trying to use the Carousel Slider. I have 4 images as placeholders sized to spec. 1170x400

    Here's a screenshot of the settings from the Theme Options.

    The features panel is not generating a shortcode for the 'free' version. Is it supposed to?

    The free version doesn't have a built in slider for the shot page, only the premium version. Since you made the shop page you home page the built in slider for the home page won't work, it's being overridden by the shop page. You need to use a slider plugin and add your shortcode to the shop page or create a custom child theme with a slider or not make your home page the shop page.
    Instead you can use woocommerce shortcodes to have products on your homepage.

    Thanks a lot! I was hoping for the original theme slider but I see any it isn't working and I was wanting to not try to cause any JS errors.

    I've gone ahead and installed the WOW Slider and it works perfectly.

    Thanks again!
