Here you go mate... couldn't be easier:


Did you set the image file of the navigation button as your featured image within the page it links to? This is not immediately obvious or in the instructions I first read but is mentioned in the below instructions:


**************************************************
HOW TO CHANGE THE IMAGES
**************************************************

1. Make the images using photoshop
You can download the original photo shop file from the theme homepage.
The titles of the images are changed by editing the image in photoshop.
Get any picture, crop it to 320 x 200, then write the text on it, and save it as a jpg.
Try to make the filesize small - in photoshop you do this by 'save for web' and choose medium or low quality - not high.
2. Go to a post and select 'upload image'
3. Select 'use as featured image'. This will set that image to the sliding door for that page.

**************************************************
HOW TO SET UP THE SLIDING MENUS
**************************************************

1. Go into Appearance - Menus
2. Create a New menu and add 7 Pages or categories to it.
3. A new dropdown will appear on the left called 'Sliding Navigation' Select your new menu here.

Hi, new to this too, got as far as creating 320x200 pictures/uploaded but can't find anywhere in the post that says 'use as featured image'

Thanks

When you create a page there is an entry on the bottom right side to set a featured image. By clicking there, you will be able to select the image from your library.

I finally got the slider bar working.... You have to make 1 menu.. and drag the 7 pages you want under the one menu...
