about 30 seconds after I wrote that things were "fixed" I added a fifth and sixth slide to the front page feature slider, and once again, only the first four slides are showing up. I haven't TOUCHED the code. I reverted every single thing in the theme back to default, and only added back my custom CSS. I haven't touched any of the templates, nothing. What the hey??? I'm getting pretty frustrated. What am I doing wrong?

First, sorry about the frustration.. I can empathize with you. Second, on this site I am seeing 4 slides.. have you added anymore in the backend? It appears you have created a markup issue somewhere; I don't know where. You might be able to find it using the w3 validator here:

Third, even though you are frustrated, your site looks great! Nice customization work.

Just a theory, but when you added your new feature pages, did you include them in the right category to go along with the first four?

Yes, I have a total of 6 slides created, but only the first four are showing. Second, thanks for the feedback Chris, yes I created them under "feature slide" not "feature box" and they are all pointed at the same page ID (36 - my home page). Andrew thanks for the link, I'll try it and thanks for the feedback on the site :-) It's getting there.

Ok, the W3 validator found some errors, and I've fixed the ones I knew what to do with, I'll paste the others here and perhaps someone can help me? ` 1. Warning Line 298, Column 11: character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data /*SUBHEAD & SUBNAV*/ 2. Warning Line 393, Column 11: character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data /*SIDEBAR & WIDGETS*/ 3. Error Line 808, Column 39: end tag for "span" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified <li><span class="last">? </li> 4. Info Line 808, Column 10: start tag was here <li><span class="last">? </li> 5. Error Line 887, Column 27: there is no attribute "role" <div id="sidebar" role="complementary"> 6.

Well to get rid of the first couple delimiter errors get rid of the ampersands in your custom css `/*SIDEBAR & WIDGETS*/` Should be `/*SIDEBAR AND WIDGETS*/`

Important head's up. Ampersands & are important and there for a reason, do not remove them, they simply need to be corrected to: `& amp;` - no space between & a Forwarding for developer help. Thanks, Bryan
