I'm building a site using the executive theme and want to use the homepage not as the "latest posts" but rather a static page. However, the responsive slider and other home widgets won't work with this setting. Any way around this? I've tried adding a widgetized area to the functions.php and moving the slider there, but even still, it's not working.
Current temporary URL where I'm working is — http://126.96.36.199/~applebar/blog/
I second that, I would like to use "featured images" for a page, that way I don't have to have the image visible on the page. In a way each image acts as a cover page for the pages that I would like to be linked into the slider.
I have this option on a theme I used for my previously on the blog http://www.neuroknowhow.com/newsandblog
executive them is installed at http://www.neuroknowhow.com/brain
Live long and prosper
You'll find when you setup the the slider and add content to the widgets that the homepage no longer displays posts.
Another option is to create a page and use it as your homepage and add widget area using this tutorial http://designsbynickthegeek.com/tutorials/add-widgeted-sidebar
You could also use the portfolio tutorial and display this page on the home page http://www.briangardner.com/portfolio-page/
