Meteor Slides
[resolved] Novice question...where do I put the code? (6 posts)

    This plugin is just what I've been looking for though I'm a little lost.
    I want the slideshow to appear on my home page only, above my posts though below my header and horizontal nav. Like in these examples:
    http://theletteredcottage.net/
    http://www.perfectlyimperfectblog.com/

    I have searched the forums for an answer though as a non-developer have decided I need a more detailed, personalised explanation.

    Ideally I would like to be able to put some code in my child themes functions.php (to avoid messing with any core files and so I won't lose anything with future updates). Though what would the code need to be exactly?

    Hi, where you place the code depends on the theme, what theme are you using?

    Thanks. I worked it out. I'm using a Genesis theme. I ended up using this:

    add_action ('genesis_before_loop', "custom_meteor_slides");
    
    	function custom_meteor_slides() {
    
    	if ( is_home()  && !is_paged() ) {
    
    	if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow("featured-posts", ""); }
    }

    It seems to work great.

    Thanks for the awesome plugin!

    Hi Josh,
    I have the same problem with the above post, I'd like the meteor slider in my homepage also. Im using Prosumer template.
    I already figured out the widget on my sidebar, but i'd like tit to appear on my homepage.

    Which code to be replaced?
    What code is the replacement?

    Thank you!

    @allanpelias It depends on how you have the site setup, if it has a blog homepage or a static homepage and where exactly on the homepage you want the slideshow. Can you post a link to your site and point out exactly where you want it?
