Is it possible to use a standard picture instead of the slider on the front page of the Wide Range (free) theme? If so, please tell me how to do it. If I can only use a slider, please tell me how to add the picture for it. The Demo Content file came up as an error message and would not install it.
The option is not available to use static image in place of homepage slider.
You need to set image slider to display images on main page.
To display slider:
1. Create 3 pages for slider from Pages -> Add New
2. Add title, description and set Featured Image (This featured image will be your slider image)
3. Go to the Appearance -> Theme Options Panel -> Slider Section -> Select slider pages
