We have a static page we're using for our homepage. Under "Theme Options" I've configured "Slide one" and "Content One" so that we can display a slideshow and content blocks. They do not show up on the homepage, or any page for that matter.
The homepage (which is a page not a post) is using the default template. But I've tried a ton of combinations and cannot get the slideshow, or content blocks, to appear.
The site is hosted on GoDaddy's servers if that makes a difference.
