[resolved] Sticky post header on home page (5 posts)

    When using Untitled on wordpress.com the featured image of the sticky post would become the home page header. This gives the home page more of a graphical presence: see http://phillycalledup.com. However, the theme from wordpress.org does not look to support this feature when installed on our instance. Is this an oversight or a deliberate difference? Either way, I really liked this behavior on wordpress.com.

    The same theme is often not identical on .COM and .ORG.

    The WordPress.com version of this theme uses Featured Content, found under Settings -> Reading, where you can assign specific posts to a Tag so they'll appear in the slider. It does not use Sticky posts for the slider.

    You can achieve the same effect on your self-hosted site using Jetpack, which includes the Featured Content plugin we use on WordPress.com: http://jetpack.me

    I hope this helps!

    Hi Caroline,

    Could you please give some details on how to achieve this behavior using JetPack? I have exactly the same question. I must say it is a bit misleading when you download the theme for self-hosted site and see feature-content, but this, apparently, does not work. A short tutorial on how to correct it would be very helpful.

    @Denis, it would be best to voice that in your own thread, otherwise you are only visible to those who happen to be looking in this particular thread.
