First off thank you for the awesome theme!
I have the pages working by going to theme options > frontpage settings > where do you want to display blog? I edited that and my slider is working.
They're all pages though, I only see my posts under " recent posts " in my sidebar.
Basically I want my posts to display on the front page not pages WITH my slider. I've tried everything and it appears I can only have my slider with the pages being frontpage posts.
