How do I get the featured slider to appear only on the front page and not on sub-pages (like the demo)

this page has featured slider
http://demos.simplethemes.com/orion/

this page doesn't
http://demos.simplethemes.com/orion/content-templates

In addition, on the subpage above, how do I create a content slider that goes all the way across like the one at the top (or is that not a slider?)

Yes, you can install the Dynamic Widgets plugin, then in each widget's setting you'll see a new link that will either read "static" or "dynamic". Click that link and then you can set which page(s) each widget should appear on.

That is the Teaser (1,2,3) widget position. This page only has one text widget assigned (not a slider).

The featured slider widget is exclusively for the "featured" widget position. You can however, insert slideshows inside content using the slideshow shortcode or by clicking the "insert slideshow" button in your editor.
