There is a page option for it. If you don't see page options then you need the latest version of the theme from your launchpad account which has a patch which fixes this.

Thanks for the reply. I can't find the patch you speak of, only the full SP3 theme that I downloaded. Can you please respond with a link. Thanks again.

I downloaded the SP3 version yesterday, so it should contain the patch. I am using Safari. Should I use a different browser?

I can see a blank list that says page options. I can add the NextGen into a field and see it on the Carousel template page, but I cannot work out how to get the Carousel template "carousel" field to display images. It just gives me the "You have selected the carousel page template but the plugins aren't activated for the selected mode (either NextGen-Gallery or FlickrRSS)." If I can get a step by step to fix this I would be very happy.

You should have StationPro 3.2.4 to get the page options. (released yesterday afternoon) Version 3.2.3 will have missing page options.

Do I do a brand new install of SP3? What will happen to my content? Is there a read me file?

okay lemme see if you even need it. When you edit a page...say the default "about" page. Do you see PageLines options on the screen underneath all the other panels? or is it blank?

Thanks for helping out. On the "About" page in edit mode, at the bottom under the "Revisions" heading I see a heading saying "StationPro Page Options" with the lines underneath it blank.

Ok, now that changes everything. The missing page options had me pulling my hair out, thinking I was doing something wrong. I could not upload the zip file for 3.2.4 without an error. However, I used Filezilla to rename 3.2.3 to "old" and then copied the new folder into the themes folder. Please let me know if this is going to cause problems. Right now though, it seems to be functioning perfectly.

Definitely some problems now.........With 3.2.4 I don't get any color templates. I am also having trouble getting it to find local files.

I have worked out the issues I was having, and it seems that I have never had the color templates working on my site, I've only seen them on the Pagelines demo page. If someone can help me with that feature, I would appreciate it. Otherwise it is all working perfectly.
