Meteor Slides
[resolved] Adding captions to meteor slides (12 posts)

    I have a wordpress site at;
    http://michianait.net/HilltopRisen/

    I am trying to show captions for the slides on the meteor slide show on the homepage.

    I have added the necessary php statement and edited the stylesheet as Josh suggestion. However, the titles don't seem to appear.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    In may case, the caption does not show up on the slide show at all.
    Kindly help me.

    I dont know anything about CSS, HTML, or PHP. So kindly be a little elaborate.

    Regards
    Soumen

    The way I implemented showing captions (actually titles) was to follow Josh's instructions in http://jleuze.com/plugins/meteor-slides/customizing-the-slideshow-template.

    I just put the two files he mentions in my theme directory and it worked.

    It only displays slide titles - I would like to display captions instead and put them below the photo, but I haven't figured that out yet.

    @Karnac2020 Do you need captions with a title and description, or just a description? If you only need one type of text you can use the slide titles, if you need to you can add slide excerpts. If you want to move the captions below the slides you can tweak the styles like this.

    @soumennath Did you add captions to the slides using a custom slideshow template?
