Slider NOT correctly selecting the First Image in a post.
Can anyone suggest what might be going wrong?
My slider, at the top of my home page, is failing to select the FIRST image in the post as the slider image, even though that is the selection I have made in the “Slider Options” parameter setup of the Graphene Options section in my dashboard.
Instead, a seemingly random image from the post is being selected.
Has anyone else encountered this, and found a solution?
Could it be something to do with which post image was UPLOADED to the Media Library first? (I’m clutching at straws here – just trying to imagine what the code for the slider is doing and why it might not correctly select the first image actually placed in the post).
Any help would be appreciated.

That is indeed the case, and it is by design as it is the fastest and most reliable way of getting a post’s image (other than Featured Image, of course). You can also rearrange the images uploaded for a post so that an image that is uploaded later can still be selected by placing it first in the list of images uploaded for the post.
Many thanks for your reply.
I have just searched the support forum but can find no instructions as to how to rearrange the images in the Media Library, and I’m afraid there is nothing on the dashboard of Graphene to suggest how this might be achieved.
I would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction for some instructions onhow the Media Library ‘position’ data can be found and altered.
Go to the Edit screen for the post, and click on the “Add Media” button. In the dropdown with the “All media items” preselected, choose the “Uploaded to this post” option instead. To rearrange the images, simply drag and drop them in the desired order. The first image should be located leftmost.
