    Hi there,

    Great script, excellent work and great support! 5 stars. I think you need to make it more clear within FAQ that you can alter these options via the code as more people would use it!

    I have a question, how can I set the navigation option via meta? What term is what option?

    The code I am using is below and it works great, but I'm not sure how to custom set the navigation option.

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow( "homepage-team", "fx: 'fade', height: '164', width: '350'" ); } ?>

    Thanks!

    Hi Steve, thanks for the feedback! Most of the options can be set using metadata, but a few, like the navigation must be changed on the settings page.

    Are you trying to activate the navigation on only certain slideshows, or used paged on some and prev/next on others?

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

    In my settings I have navigation turned off, but I'd like to be able to turn it on for one of the three sliders I have. Is this possible?

    Are there any other options that can't be changed like quantity or transition speeds etc.?

    Thanks!

    The quantity and the navigation are the only two, they are part of the loop that loads the slides. The rest of the settings are part of the cycle script that powers the slideshow.

    To use the navigation on only certain slideshows, turn it on in the settings, hide it in the stylesheet and show it only on the slideshows you want navigation on.

    This is what I am doing on my own site, navigation is set to "both", but on my homepage the paged navigation is hidden. You could hide the paged nav from all slideshows like this:

    .meteor-buttons {
    display: none;
    }

    And show the nav on specific slideshows, like the one on the Meteor Slides homepage, using the navigation's ID:

    #meteor-buttonsmeteor-slides {
    display: block;
    }
    }

    Thanks! This is a great idea I'll give it a go.

    Do you plan on introducing this as a built-in feature in the near future? That is; the ability to have one settings page per slideshow, rather than a global one?

    Another good feature would be the ability to change the navigation images via the backend, or have a dropdown with a couple of style choices.

    Otherwise; this is the best and most stable slider plugin I've ever used.

    No problem, I would like to come up with a better way to switch styles, but I don't have anything planned out yet.
