Featured Listings don't show
I can't explain this one. I have 5 entries and each is "featured." Technically just one should work but I read here that there is some bug and you need at least five entries - and all of the first 5 will be featured anyways. Well, none show. No plugins, just the theme. From what I know there is no setting on the back end to change this and there should be no slider showing if it doesn't show those listings.
In addition, I don't know what "popular" listings means either because none show. There should always be listings there as well.
