Meteor Slides
[resolved] Previous/Next buttons appear but don't work (7 posts)

    When I set it to 'both'(Paged and previous/next), I am able to see the previos/next buttons but not the page dots.

    Whatever I set slide navigation to, they don't function.

    Hi, the buttons are probably there, but a theme conflict is hiding theme. Can you post a link to your site?

    They miraculously appeared! And they work well. The only thing that has changed is that buddypress has been updated. Maybe it was the W3 Total Cache and minify settings.

    Also, is there a way for you to include centering within the slideshow? It's the only flaw I notice but it's not big enough of a problem for me to spend time messing with child themes and css to get it right.

    Otherwise, amazing work! What would be really good to implement is the option of taking up a percentage of the screen (left or right) with clickable blog titles. So that some info can appear along with the photos. I know other pluggins do it but personally I'd want only one slider/slideshow plugin to do everything slideshow related.

    That's good to hear! Do you want to center the slideshow, or the pager buttons?

    It is possible to customize the design of the slideshow, you can add captions like that using a custom slideshow template.

    I managed to centre the slideshow by entering the exact page width of the slideshow (suppose that's not centreing it, that's extending it to 100%).

    So I'm happy.

    Is there a way to not include the slideshow to users?

    Ooh, I forgot to suggest to be able to 'add' a slide by simply adding a url instead of uploading. This is very beneficial for smaller websites with storage limitations.

    Since you've developed this plugin, maybe you could suggest me some demo pictures just to show your plugin off? I am looking for design-related pictures (I know this is not relevant, but I thought it might be a good thing to offer some demo pictures so that users can easily get it running)

    The slide images need to be uploaded because they are featured images for the slide posts and WordPress only uses images that are uploaded to the media library for featured images.

    When I am testing or building demos I usually use images from Wikipedia or NASA.
