    That's part of the XenPorta add-on. It's called the RecentSlider block and is included in the XenPorta add-on as a default block.

    You first of all need to find an image you want shown on the slider. You then need to save it to your computer as slide.jpg.

    Then, you attach it to the post using the Upload a File button. You don't need to "insert" it, just leave it attached and then it should appear in the recent slider.

    what does the slide.jpg have to look like? can i get an example image?

    i always get this error that says the contents of the image do not match the files extension
    The following error occurred

    The contents of the uploaded image do not match the file's extension.
