    Default Not Seeing The Magazine Feature

    Hello,

    I just downloaded 3.0 and installed it onto a site. I don't see where the magazine feature is located to use it. Am I just missing it?

    Thank!

    Goto Pages > Add New - Locate Page Attributes from right hand side and select a magazine layout.

    Name the page something (don't add any content) and publish it.. then view.

    Hey Dan,

    I did what you suggested but now on the home page, its a white blank spot. How does a person add an article in that spot like the demo page?

    Are there video tutorials for the new features?

    Thanks

    You need to post content in the featured category and you need recent posts. You also need to set Featured images for the slider. More tutorials are coming this week, but here's a beta video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTij47Tkaus

    Thanks for that video link!

    Not sure if this is happening with others but after I was able to create the magazine style I preferred, the small thumbnail appeared on the main page. Now, I saw that you can disable the mini featured image on the main page from the settings area. I checked that box, but when I saved the settings, it did not save with the box checked. Might be a bug.

    Or what else could be happening?

    We will look into it. I assume it still functions correctly once saved checked correct?

    Most of the issues have been resolved, we're still trying to figure out two IE9 bugs.
