BP-Social Theme Issue

Hi, everyone. I'm new to this forum, but not to Wordpress. I've been watching the development of Buddypress for a long time. It's come a LONG way!

I am having an issue with the Social Theme which I downloaded this evening. The doc files are helpful, but don't cover all the installation issues that might come up.

I am trying to use the gallery with the slider. I've figured out how to make that happen, but I haven't figured out how to get an image to show up that is related to the "featured" post. I'm assuming that it should be put into a custom field, but I haven't figure it out totally. Would someone please let me know how to make it work?

Here's the site, which is still in development. Thanks!
