My problem is when I move the blog away from the main page. The featured posts that I have selected, as well as appearing in the carousel in the top, are also the first five blog posts shown in the main display. Why is this? When the blog was the main page, the five featured posts are in the carousel, and then the first blog post to show up underneath it is the latest post (as long as its not one of the featured posts) i.e. the featured posts dont show up in the main blogroll, but as soon as I move it off the front page, then they do. This is counter-productive.
How do I resolve this and make it as before when the featured posts were absent from the blog roll?
