    Ok I'm using wordpress for one of the my blog and I install the Bloom theme. Everything fine expect that I don't know how to change the 3 "Highlights"/"Featured Content". I got no idea how to add which category I want and I got no idea how to add a thumbnail to it. Everything else I got and I don't seem to have a problem. I read their FAQS and everything. I follow the FAQs but I don't got a drop-down menus called Highlights Category 1, Highlights Category 2 , & Highlights Category 3 under the appearance option. All I got is themes, widgets, editor and add new themes. Now I'm completely lost and confuse hope someone can help me. I'm using wordpress version 2.9.2 and the theme version is supposedly version 1.0. Hopefully someone can enlighten me on how to work the 3 highlights/featured content

    Code:

    This is what they said:

    How do I setup the 3 "Highlights"/"Featured Content" sections on the homepage?

    Assign Categories To setup the 3 sections that appear under Highlights/Spotlight, navigate to your Theme Options Panel located under Appearance in Admin. Find the drop-down menus under Highlights Category 1, Highlights Category 2 , & Highlights Category 3. Select the 3 categories that you wish to display. The last post within each category will appear in those 3 spots on the homepage.

    Which Posts will be Displayed? Posts will need to have a thumbnail image assigned to them in order to appear in these 3 spots. To do this, locate the "Custom Fields" section on your Post Edit page and fill in the following information:
    Names: thumbnail
    Values: the URL to that image

    Thumbnail Images You can use the WP Post Thumbnail Plugin to create the specific image sizes and insert their URL in to the Custom Fields automatically. Click here to view a tutorial on using the WP Post Thumbnail plugin. You can also insert the information manually by uploading each image size to Media. For image sizes, please see the Common Image Dimensions FAQ for your particular theme.

    If you read my message you will understand that I already went to their FAQs and read everything. The problem is I can't find the drop-box menu for the highlights/featured
