Meteor Slides
[resolved] Meteor 1.5.1 Incompatible With NextGen Gallery? (9 posts)

    I upgraded a client's website this morning and noticed that Meteor Slides had stopped working after the upgrade. After disabling my plugins and reactivating one by one I came to find that NextGen Gallery is the offending culprit.

    Are you aware of this incompatibility? Any suggestions for a workaround? My site relies heavily on both Meteor and nextGen, so I'd very much like to have them work in harmony.

    You can view my site here, but I have turned off nextGen for the time being, since I need Meteor to be working.

    Thanks,
    - Michael

    Still struggling to find an explanation for the incompatibility. When I run NextGen and Meteor at the same time, all the Meteor slideshows just disappear. When I turn NextGen off, they re-appear. I tried running the "Restore jQuery" plugin to see if that would help, but it makes no difference at all.

    Hi Mike, these plugins should work together fine. I just tested them and the slideshow was working for me, but NextGen has a lot of options and this could really depend on your particular setup.

    I'm guessing there is a JavaScript conflict and if both were running I could check if for JavaScript errors and that would give me a clue as to what the culprit is. Would you be able to activate NextGen for a bit so I can check it?

    I'm still not sure what the cause is, but I narrowed this down. NextGen works fine with Meteor Slides slideshows that have more than one slide, but on single slide slideshows NextGen is conflicting with the styling.

    You can fix this either by adding more slides, or adding this to your theme's stylesheet:

    .meteor-slides .meteor-clip {
    position: static !important;
    }

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll try your CSS idea. I've gone ahead and turned on NextGen for you. Again, here is a link to the site.

    Thanks,

    Yeah, I don't see any JavaScript errors, I made that CSS change to the slideshow and the slide showed up.

    I just updated my CSS with your code and the images came back. Looks like everything is back to normal. Thanks very much for your help, I never would have figured that out!
