    I am not able to get what I want from the theme I have been trying to set up, so I am looking at Ceckito. The “Usage Instructions” say to turn on Content Slider:

    First part – theme options

    Go to Appearance / Theme Options / Slider
    Check Enable content slider (checked – enabled)

    When I go there, there are no slider options.

    Please advise.

    Thanks for the info. I followed the instructions exactly as the video gave them. After creating the test page and following the steps to create the slider (which is relatively easy) I selected “preview”, and saw the slider in action.

    The problem is that the slider does not show up on the front page.

    This is the site: http://www.familyhealth360.com/
    THis is the slider: http://www.familyhealth360.com/?page_id=194

    Remember: There is no toggle under THEME OPTIONS to turn on the slider.

    How do I tell the theme to place the slider on the front page?

    Hi Mark,

    you need to set theme differently. First, create a page called front page for example, and on the right side under page attributes / template select multi sections template. Create slider as in video. Go to settings / reading and select front page as front page.

    To add blog posts below slider, there’s also shortcode for that, called “Blog”. Just add it after slider, and it will display your latest posts.
    Example blog shortcode looks like this:
    [blog number="10" ignore_sticky="false"]

    I hope this helps.

    I have solved all of these issues except there is still a space between the header and the slider.

    Please assist with that issue.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    1. You did not select page template “Multi select”, that’s why header / slider gap exists. If you can’t find it, check the screenshot: https://i1.wp.com/en.support.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/find_page_attributes.png. It’s on the right side of page (it’s not showing on posts).

    2. Make those posts in center, you need to put posts inside of section shortcode, which has “wrap” (checkbox) turned on, and your shortcode would look like this on the end:

    
    [section center="true" color_scheme="color_1"]
    [blog number="6" ignore_sticky="false"]
    [/section]
    

    Try just copying this instead of your blog shortcode.
