The theme definitely have the feature to display the slider .
So for this at first please make sure to to set your Your homepage displays to A static page by going to Admin Panel > Appearance > Customize > Homepage Settings .
After that go to Admin Panel > Appearance > Customize > Featured Slider > Enable Slider on and select the option Home Page/ Front Page or Entire site . Then chose the category that you want to display in the slider .
Also make sure to upload the image in Featured image section of individual post edit screen of that category as the image in the slider display from there.
Hope this helps .
If you have any confusion further please let us know .

I did all of the above. Still no slider… do I have to show the post containing the slider-image on the homepage or somewhere else?

When we inspected your site we found that the slider is not enabled and you have not placed any widget in Front page widget area .
Slider is set using the category . So create the category by going to Admin Panel > Posts > Categories . Now assign the posts that you want to display on the slider in that category and chose that category by going to Admin Panel > Appearance > Customize > Featured slider > Slider Type .

Hope this helps .

Thank you for your quick reply!
However, I think I did just all that.
The picture of the post is set to wen-business-slider.
There’s no slider visible on the pages.
Thanks in advance!November 22, 2017 at 8:08 am #58919
(…) you have not placed any widget in Front page widget area .
Which widget do I have to place on the homepage? There’s no widget called Slider. I tried Featured Page-widget but it gives me just the image.

You have placed the image in content area of the post edit screen through add media and this image does not appear in the slider .
The image that appears in the slider is the one that you upload in the Featured image section of individual post .
for clear info please refer to below screen shot :
Also there are other sections in the theme that you can add in the Front page widget area like call to action etc .
Hope this helps.
Have a good day 🙂 .November 30, 2017 at 8:52 am #59464
Thanks very much!
The website is now working how I want it!
Is there also an option to show different featured images per page?
Also, where can I find more info about how to use widgets in the Front Page widget area and/or on other pages?November 30, 2017 at 10:51 pm #59495
You can definitely place different featured image for different page .
For this simply go to individual page and upload the image in Featured image section of that page like the one you have done in post .
You can refer to the theme official documentation for more info .
If you have any confusion while setting up then you can post your query here and we will help you .
