Hi my images that I’ve added to the Featured slider, isn’t showing up on the home page, not sure why. Here is the url: prophixuserconference.com
I added the image through the URL option.December 15, 2012 at 2:36 am #2385
Check out the instruction page here: http://catchthemes.com/theme-instructions/catch-box/
Also check out the link in the instructions for details on Feature Images and the slider. Pretty sure you’ll find your answer there.

Did both and I’m doing everything it says to do but still my images won’t show up. I’m not sure why.
HELP!!!!!December 15, 2012 at 4:11 am #2393
Also I’m using Simple Catch as my theme not Catch BoxDecember 15, 2012 at 7:02 am #2398
I can see the slider in action on your page, but no images are associated with it, which makes me think you haven’t set the “featured” image tag for the pictures you’re using. I know you’ve check, but could you please go into your wordpress media menu and makes sure to select the image you want, then go down the image page until you find the “set as featured image” selection box. Don’t forget to save your selections.

I took a look a little deeper and I am going to suggest the following:
– make sure you’re site is set up so the home page is your “Post” page (not a static page)
– make sure you post images to your posts
– make sure you make note of the post ID’s where you posted your images
– make sure you go to the theme setting > featured slider > add slider options and put in the post id in the appropriate fields
– click on the save button
Note: to find post id’s, go into edit mode of your specific post, look up in the url address and you will see the “post id number” in the url address. Use the number in the add slider option window.December 17, 2012 at 11:22 pm #2427
I’ve added images to my posts and added in the post id’s into the featured image section within the theme setting>featured slider.
The images I am using in m my post are URL based because for some reason I am not able to use the image that is saved on my desktop. I get an .htacess error whenever I try to upload any image anywhere. Not sure why. Any ideas?December 18, 2012 at 6:07 am #2430
Back to some basics – You should be re-sizing your images so they are smaller than 2meg. Most servers that host WordPress have 2 meg as a default setting as the largest size image you can upload. In fact try and re-size by pixel size – something like 800 wide x 450 high would be a good starting point.
You should be using jpg, tif, png or gif for the majority of your image file upload file types.
What kind of computer are you using (PC or Apple)? Have you ever been able to upload an image to you WordPress site?
If not on your WordPress server, where are the images? URLs? Some place like Flickr or Piccsa?? (pretty sure this is why you’re having problems with the slider)

I haven’t been able to upload pics to my wordpress server through the browser, I’ve just gone into the file structure in filezilla and created and added my images there and then referenced the image path in WordPress.
I am on a PC. Is there anyway I can add the images I want on my image slider through my DB? I have access to it.December 21, 2012 at 5:11 am #2472December 21, 2012 at 6:07 pm #2490
@Anusha: You need to add Featured Image in the Post. See this http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/#setting-a-featured-image
If you want to add manual image url then you need to upgrade to Simple Catch Pro where you have option to choose between Featured Post Slider and Featured Image Slider. If you choose Featured Image Slider, then you can just add the URL, Title, Description and link as necessary.December 22, 2012 at 4:17 am #2505
I have re-sized the image to the same size as the Featured Slider.
When I went into my Page and clicked on “Featured Image” I added my image which is saved on my desktop but when I hit update this is the message I receive:
You are using the multi-file uploader. Problems? Try the browser uploader instead.
Maximum upload file size: 8MB. After a file has been uploaded, you can add titles and descriptions.
Dismiss“image1.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
The uploaded file could not be moved to /var/www/vhosts/prophixuserconference.com/httpdocs/wp-content/uploads/2012/12.December 22, 2012 at 5:36 am #2506
Assuming you are not trying to upload multiple files at this point – this error occurred with the one file you tried to upload?? right?
I think you may have a permission problem on your upload directory on your server. At least I’d start there.
Here is a good link on file and directory permissions.
RonDecember 28, 2012 at 1:06 am #2647
That worked! Had to speak with my Host give me “write” permissions.
Thanks!December 28, 2012 at 5:52 am #2653
You’re welcome. Glad it worked for you 🙂September 9, 2013 at 6:29 am #14273GlenisartMember
I’ve been using Simple Catch for a while now and I really love it for my blog. http://china.interconnex.org
I was having a problem with the homepage slider, and recently discovered that it doesn’t work with the second slider that I have installed on my other pages (cyclone slider).
Is there any way around that other than an upgrade? As soon as I am able I plan to upgrade the theme, just can’t right now. Also, when I am able to upgrade, will features of the Pro allow me to add sliders to any page I choose in a beautiful box, like the cyclone slider does?September 9, 2013 at 9:15 pm #14309
@Glenisart: What is the issue with the cyclone slider. You can write to them to fix and support our theme. As plugins are supposed to support all free plugins in WordPress.org.October 8, 2013 at 4:43 am #15663ultradezinsMember
I have added the post ID’s to the featured slider. Set the number of slides to 4 and inserted 4 slides, but ONLY one slides appears! I did everything like in tutorials and didnt change anything. It was working before, I dont know what happened. How to fix that?October 8, 2013 at 1:45 pm #15674
@ultradezins: Remember, it only takes post ID not the page ID. So, please check that. I see that you have added one post ID as 698. So, let’s try adding in as following 4 slides.
