just started using newscast
read the newscast documentation. made a page for home. the documentation doesnt seem to say anything about making a page the mainpage. i have made 3 posts with images that i want in the slider. selected the slider i want but it doesnt show up on the home page. i have made all the posts in the category of banner and selected that category for the slider.
can anyone help please. what am i doing wrong?March 19, 2011 at 12:46 pm #42646

I am having the same problem…Just started using the theme today. Not sure why the images are not showing up on the home page…I set them as the featured image in 2 posts, and expected to see too slides, but nothing….
Also, would like to have a HOME link but not sure exactly how to do this either…sorry —total newbie here…June 8, 2011 at 4:45 am #42649
1) You need to assign featured images to your posts/pages. On the right side of your post/page editor page you’ll see a “set featured image” link/option. Click on it and choose the image you want to assign. If you want to use the image as post/page thumbnail and slider image do not insert the image into the post/page text field directly but use the “set featured image option” and click on “Use as featured image” instead of “Insert into post”.
2) You can use the menu manager which can be found under Appearance > Menus. Create two menus – the first one call “First” and the second one “Second”. Then add your menu items to it.June 8, 2011 at 11:22 am #42650
EXCELLENT! Thanks so much!!
On the home page — http://www.stpeterslutheran-lanc.org/ — I would like there to be static content as opposed to a post. It says “Nothing Found” referring to posts. I don’t want actual posts, just some welcome type text.Possible?
When i make the home Page “static” it removes the slideshow and other features which i would like to keep.
Again — THANK YOU!!June 9, 2011 at 9:55 am #42651
Unfortunately Newscast doesn’t support a slideshow and a specified homepage page. You could however, modify index.php to display your content (either hardcoded or add a WP Query to pull in a page you specify).

Can the same post remain at the top and be used as if it’s a page?
How exactly would you use a “WP Query to pull in a page?”
This seems like a serious limitation being that most people are using the theme as a website rather than a blog. Why can’t you fix this?June 9, 2011 at 12:56 pm #42653
O that is a bummer……hmmm….is there a way to disable the post features – especially the “Comments Off” text?June 9, 2011 at 4:05 pm #42654
If you want to display a page instead of posts have a look at this thread: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/static-home-pageJune 10, 2011 at 12:59 pm #42655
Checked out the thread and that worked perfectly – Except it still has the appearance of a post – with date, author, comments etc…
I had created a new page — id=212 — why does it appear as a post…am i missing something?
Thanks so much!!June 11, 2011 at 12:52 pm #42656
add following code to style.css (at the very bottom).
display: none !important;

Hey, one more question – for now anyway…Which of your themes would you recommend for an e-commerce site? Would any suit better than another?
Thank you!!June 14, 2011 at 12:26 pm #42660
I think the main choice to make is which layout / style do you prefer?
Personally, I like the look of Brightbox and Upscale but it’s down to your personal preference.
