    Hi,
    I'm a newbee here, so maybe somebody can help me out....?
    I've installed the WP3.5.q with the Simplify Theme (By D5 Creation Version 1.3.1). I've also installed the Meteor Slides Widget (Version 1.5.1).

    What I don't understand is how to get the Slide show working with Front Page Banner.
    How and where do I have to insert the codes "<?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?> and "[meteor_slideshow]"

    My website is: http://www.eye2i-consulting.nl/

    Thank you so much

    Regards
    Rudy

    Yes I did Josh. Thanx for your reply.
    The only thing is that the slideshow on Google-Chrome:
    -appeared from the top left hand corner
    -is not fading smoothly; during the transformation is glitches
    No problems with on MSIE.

    Thanks in advance,
    Rehrads

    Hey Rudy, could you give me the example of where you posted the snippet and what you posted. This is exactly what I am trying to do, and you made it work beautifully! Great job!

    Or Josh, if you could help, any would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance guys - Kairi

    Hi Kairi,
    You have to first login as WP-ADMIN.
    Then, go the Dashboard section and select "Apprearance"
    On this Menu, choose the option "Editor" and select the file " front-page.php" (Front Page Page Template) from the file list on the right window-pane.

    Here comes the tricky part:

    Insert the code snippet: <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?>

    between <div id="slide"> and </div>

    Your whole section will look like this:

    ....

    <div id="slide-container">
    <div id="slide">
    <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?>
    </div>
    </div> <!-- slide-container -->

    ...

    When you´re done press the button [Update File]. You may want to save the original file first ;-)

    NEXT: the short-code "[meteor_slideshow]" can be inserted anywhere during the creation of a 'page' or a 'post'.

    I Hope this helps.

    GreetZ
    Rudy
