  1. I have the same issue as nepTunuspt and the location does not appear and is not an option to check in the “screen options” drop down box when in posts from the dashboard (this was suggested in forums I researched). Are there any solutions out there?

  2. I’ve loaded the oxygen theme…there is NO location command visible when creating a post. Perhaps this video is completely out of date?

  3. I am an expert in wordpress and I created some video tutorials about wordpress. It definitely is the most extensive wordpress training of 2013. Period. If you want to find out more. check out my channel. I posted a link to this amazing training course.

  4. You are a WONDERFUL PERSON. I was tearing my hair out for an hour, googling fruitlessly, and unable to work out that the reason posts weren’t showing up in the slider was because I had marked them as sticky. That is a huge difference from the .com version of the theme. Thank you.

  5. I was able to get these options to appear after creating a page titled Home, choosing the template “Front Page” for it, and setting it as the static page under Appearance, Customize.

  6. Okay, so after messing with this thing for over two hours, here’s the deal: 1. Your “Featured Image” that you set for your individual post has to be 750 pixels or more (otherwise it will not show up on the slider) 2. You must set the posts that you want to appear in the Post Slider as “Sticky.” 3. Set your “Reading” option (under Settings) to “Static Page” 4. Set whatever page’s “Template” (on the right hand side under Page Attributes) you use as your static page to “Show Case Page”, click “Update” and Bob’s your uncle! Hope this helps! Cheers!

  7. okay i kinda finally got it to work but my featured image isn’t sliding where is the next video?

  8. Hello! Do you know why i do not have plugins and location on this theme?? many thanks
