For a theme that seems so elegant, the slider/head is stunningly bad. If i have invested 5 hours tweaking the theme, 4 hours have been wasted TRYING to get the header/slider to work properly.
Between image not setting, to color not showing, to forcing up to not be able to drop slider pages into a non-public parent page, to slide#2 and #3 not even displaying, i about about ready to turf the entire theme.
I am trying not to, because i like the rest of it.
I finally realized that if you do not set a featured image, the slider fails. That corrected the main issue but the secondary and more admin-oriented: A simple warning would help when selecting a page if no image is found. Chaulk this one up to experience.
I wish now that we could hide pages more readily to group them into hidden menus and select them that way as a “page” set for the slider is no real page per se.
