Featured Slider not running


I have created a new page, set it as the static front page and added it to my menu and assigned that menu as the primary menu. I have then created a new category in Posts and created 3 posts, each with a different title, added a media image and selected their corresponding Feature Image. Then from Theme Options>Main Options>Homepage Posts Categories, I have selected my newly created category and added the Post IDs to the Featured Slides with the number of slides changed to 3. I do not have a check to exclude Slider post from Homepage posts and I have not disabled the slider with a check either. However the featured slider remains on the 3rd slide and does not rotate, run or change any images at all. I would really appreciate it if you could help me resolve this issue.

Many thanks
