I'd like to include a slider at the top of my blog but I can't see how to import it into the blog. Do I need to download a plugin for this? I'd like to be able to have images that I can link to posts.
Thanks your help.

There are 3 sliders available as shortcodes with this theme (no plugin needed), watch this video and read this article for more info about the bfslider. You can check out the shortcode examples here, for the other sliders. The images can be fetched from several locations, like posts, pages, nextgen gallery or flickr.
To add a shortcode to the top of the blog frontpage:
1. Create a page with the shortcode.
2. Add it to the "Adspace - blog home below nav" widget area with the BF Page widget.
To add it to a static frontpage just add the shortcode into the page editor (html mode) wherever you want it located. It is recomended to use the shortcode GUI for an overview of the available parameters.
Thank you! That was really helpful!
I've got the slider to work but now I have a lot of extra space beneath the slider and the first post - how can I get rid of this?
Thanks so much!
Not sure if that was the right link to the shortcode guide?
Just tried inserting marginbottom="0" into the code for the slider and it doesn't seem like anything has changed? Thanks for your help.
it was (a reference guide, but with the shortcode GUI that's not really necessary anymore). link to the page, and I can take a look. You can also paste the shortcode here.
the images are proportionally resized meaning that the image height is not 360px, but 322px with a width of 840px of the slider.
[bfslider height="322" width="840" marginbottom="0" buttons="style2" speed="3000" animation="fade"]
Amazing! Thank you so much!
DaTigga, ok, it's just that apple have removed those images, the slider still works though.
