for anyone else looking: if you want to use s3slider, you dont need to set your homepage as static front page in Settings => Reading options, just leave all options as WordPress default.
I am unable to get the text overlay to appear on my home page slider image. All I see is the image and title. I’m not seeing the title, description, and read more text that pops up on the right side as shown in the example here: http://wp-demo.indonez.com/?theme=Centita
I have followed the instructions and don’t see anything I am missing.
