I can't for the life of me figure out how to get a slider and posts to show up on the homepage. Basically, I'm trying to reproduce your "live preview" from Themeforest. (http://www.kriesi.at/themes/habitat/)
I have no problem creating a page with a slider, but it doesn't have posts like your home page. I even tried to import the dummy content and although it created posts, it did not create the slider on the homepage.
I've read through the manual... Please help.
