  1. Hi Tihomir,

    I love your tPortfolio Theme, which I’m using for my website.

    Recently, I noticed that the slider is not working on my homepage. My homepage reading/display settings is set to “Your latest posts” instead of “A static page”. I want to keep the current setting (i.e. display latest posts) and show the slider on the latest post homepage.

    Could you please help add a slider to the “Latest Posts Default Homepage”?

    Thank you,
    Om

    • Hi Om,

      Thanks for choosing a theme by us 🙂

      It seems you use the free theme version (‘fPortfolio’ instead of ‘tPortfolio’). It does Not support displaying of Slider into recent posts page. It’s a restriction by WordPress.org rules which we need to follow in order our themes to be listed there.

      Thanks,

  2. Hi Tihomir,

    Appreciate your quick response.

    Does the tPortfolio premium theme allow the slider to be displayed on the recent posts page? If yes, I’ll upgrade the theme to premium.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Om

      Yes, I can confirm in Premium Theme you can display the slider on the Recent posts page as well.
