Perhaps that wasn't very clear. Let me try again.
I do have the plugin installed and have been using it with some success. However, I want each slideshow to appear as a still, linked thumbnail on the homepage, and can't figure out how.
Instead, the whole dynamic slideshow appears on the homepage, which would be fine except that multiple slideshows on the same page seem to interfere with one another.
You have a very nice example on your website of what I'm trying to do: http://www.codefleet.net/cyclone-slider/templates/
Please would you tell me how to achieve that -- whether it's a function of the plugin or the theme?
