I'm new to WordPress.  The Twenty Twelve theme looks exactly like what I need except I need to be able to have a slider (preferably Meta Slider) in the location where the featured image shows up.  I've tried splitting the pages into 2 columns and putting the slider in one column, but the slider always appears below the page title, and I need it to the right of it.  can someone explain how this can be done?

where would you want the slider to appear? and is it a different slider for each Post or page?  and do you want the featured image as well as the slider?

if you install Soliloquy Lite slider plugin it also has  instructions on how to insert the slider into the template to appear above the titles

I want the slider to appear where the featured image normally is.  Yes it would be a different slider for each page.  I do not want the featured image to appear.

this wordpress article will help you modify the theme to what you want.
don't forget to make it into a child theme otherwise when wordpress updates you'll lose your mods.
