Meteor Slides
[resolved] Slides are not showing full dimensions (15 posts)

    Just learning and testing WP... that we might use for our new website:
    http://dotworkz.usrelay.com/

    I've set as 680 x 200:

    http://dotworkz.usrelay.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/slide2.jpg

    But once I add a slideshow they look re-sized and centered in the middle.

    I've tried re-uploading the slides and changing the settings but that didn't help.

    Much appreciated for any help!

    Your theme's stylesheet is shrinking the images, remove this rule or tweak it to not effect the slideshow images:

    .post img, .narrow .page img {
        max-width: 515px;
    }

    Hey Josh, where can I get more info about all the setting I can change using metadata or PHP?

    Example, I want a general settings to have both navigation, but let's say I want to set the one on my home page for just arrows:

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow( "HomePage", "width: 878, height: 258, fx: 'uncover'" ); } ?>

    Thanks again!

    Here is a list of the options you can set with metadata.

    The easiest way to remove navigation from some slideshows is to hide it with CSS though.

    Now even though I've re-uploaded the images to a bigger size, changed the plugin settings to match it they are being re-sized back again:
    http://dotworkz.usrelay.com/

    Looking at the source the images are getting width and height that are not their actual.

    I've also looked the the style-sheet CSS and couldn't find anything there...

    Any insights?

    You re-uploaded the images after changing the dimensions in the settings?

    Yes I did... all of them are the correct resolution on the library:

    ...

    Not sure what is going on... thanks again!

    @wudoo, I don't think the latest versions that you uploaded are the ones being used in the slideshow. did you remove the featured images and and add the new ones that you uploaded to the slides.

    This is the image link you posted:
    http://dotworkz.usrelay.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/slide1.jpg

    And this is what the slide is actually using:

    @priyad, did you upload the images for the slides before or after settings the slideshow dimensions to 700x700?

    The featured image sizes are generated when the images are uploaded, so if you change the slideshow dimensions, you need to re-upload the images.
