Unfortunately, the QuickSlider can not be populated dynamically with posts, the sliders are created by you via the options. To have this kind of functionality, you will need to find an alternative slider, you should look in the WordPress plugins repo.

And - how come  it is not possible to use post in slider. It is old news in other theme??  I mean you pay to use this theme!!

Are you going to make it possible ? In fact it is very difficult to show a specific category except in the carousel with is not very useable.

We are aware that non of our sliders display posts, I will bring this to our developers attention again. However, most themes do not include a slider that displays posts, this is why there are plugins.

 

The correct method of implementing a slider is to use a hook, you can find more information on how to use hooks on our documentation - http://docs.pageline.../advanced/hooks
