If it is not active there, you have to go back to ur site, click on Templates > Content Area > Blog Page > and drag and drop Features above the Post-Loop.
Make sure that the Content is enabled in the Page Templates > Blog area.
Though I am not familiar with PageLines special names for things, it seems like what you suggest is in place. But that "Inactive on Template" is still there. And no features sections are visible when viewing the site.

1. Login to your Wordpress Admin Dashboard.
2. Go to PageLines > Templates and view this
3. Once you have completed the above, go to PageLines > Meta and the Feature section should now be active and inside your content area i.e. aligned with the sidebar.

I have made some progress, using all the tips from above. My site actually looks worse at the moment, because I am now stuck on understanding how to size and place the feature slider, and understanding what it does, and what the Quick Slider does.
What I would like, from top down on my home page
> Navigation at top (it is)
> Site Title (it's there)
> Feature slider that shows five full width (960px) images, with "read more" links to the five latest blog posts (I only have three test posts at the moment)
> Three boxes linked to pages with 150px square (or larger) thumbs on the left of content (the boxes are sort of there; thumbs are the issue at the moment)
> Fat footer (haven't worked on this at all)
I'd like no feature slider on interior posts or pages.
The home page look would be similar to . I didn't use that because I couldn't tell whether the slider worked as I would like, and I feared I'd be unable to change some of the header design easily.
Or, in my dreams, this:
I am continuing to try to figure this out on my own. I would welcome, appreciate, and cherish any guidance.
Is there a step-by-step guide for using the feature slider? I have missed it if so. I mean, do I first build posts, including images at the right size-- and what is that size? -- and then....I don't know. How do I have both a full width image (960), which might be image plus text, I know, and then the link leads to a post with a 620px image? How to make the images the same? How to make them different?
Is there a way, easily, have the feature slider always include the five latest posts, or does everything have to be done manually to insert a new post and remove an old one?
Re Quick Slider, I thought it was to insert a slideshow into a particular blog post, but I see I'm wrong about that. How does it differ from feature slider?
I wish I understood the special PageLines language better, so my questions might be clearer, but I will be happy to explain further if that will help.
