Slider Image and Featured Image Different?

Is there a way to specify that the first few posts included in the slider don’t also appear in the feed? Or something to that effect.

I want to try and eliminate the fact that the image on the slider isn’t the same as the image on the feed.

There is no “Option” for that but you can hide them using their ID.

To hide first post from your current website setup you can use

.blog #post-122 {
    display: none;

For others, just look into your website source for post ID. It will look something like post-122

Thanks for the swift response!
