Hi,

I have configured the Featured content options. Now when I am posting my images as post under the category Featured content category, I am getting the slider BUT I am getting the images as posts below the slider as well which I do not want.

Can anyone tell me what am I doing wrong here and what should be done to fix it?

thanks

What are your settings for featured content? Obviously if you have posts that satisfy the criteria for both, your featured content and your general posts, you will see them in both places - there is no way around it.

Hi Sayontan,

Thanks for the reply.

I did the following settings in the Featured contet tab of the suffusion theme option.

Following are my settings for some salient features

1. Enable Featured Posts on main (default) page: Enabled.
2. Enable Featured Posts on the Category view: disabled.
3. Enable Featured Posts on the Tag view: disabled
4. Featured Posts - Show Latest Posts: Show latest posts
5. Featured Posts - Show Sticky Posts: Hide sticky posts

The posts are in the category 'featured posts'.

Can you please help me here and say where I need to change the settings for this to run.

You can visit the site , www.academicessaypapers.com to see the problem.

Thanks

There isn't much that can be done here. There is no way to exclude a certain category from appearing in the regular list of posts. One approach you could have used was the magazine template, but you have too few posts for it.

i just installed 3.2.0 and i saw that the featured contents are coming as reqired and the regular posts are not there. But when i am posting the regular posts in a different category, the posts are coming as featured content too. as a result i am having all posts as featured content.

You current theme is not Suffusion, so I cannot help you there. Let me know if and when you need help (of course, you have to switch to Suffusion for that)
