I followed the instructions to get the nivo slider working on the front page of the site but nothing shows up on my home page. Just to test it, I created a new category called "Featured" and created only one post under this category with a featured image set. I then went to the theme options and made sure that the slider only displayed the post from this "Featured" category.
Is there some sort of short code that I could easily paste onto my homepage to get this working? I've seen other nice looking websites using this theme that have very functional sliders on their front page, and I'd love to have this as well. Thank you!
