I post my main news in the 'News' category but every time I do so the post appears in the slider. This means I have to have an image for every new post which is not always possible.
1. What do you suggest for me so that I can post regular new that does not necessarily have to appear in the slider?
2. How do I keep one particular thumbnail image in the slider to appear always as the first thumbnail. Foe example this site http://www.nicolasturgeon.org/ which is similar always has the 'hello' as the first image. How do i do that?
Should I create more than one news category and have one for slider images only?
Your help would be appreciated.
