    adding <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?> to the header.php results in the slides showing up one after the other vertically with the previous and next links showing above as regular links...

    Hi, this isn't a WordPress 3.5 issue, Meteor Slides should work fine with the latest version of WP. It sounds like you have a JavaScript problem, due to a theme or plugin conflict, can you post a link to the site you're working on?

    i am running a local version so no website link to send you to. i am in the process of creating a custom theme based on twentytwelve and i have not added any javascript to it, just html and css so far... i'll double check the pages i made to see, any idea where the JS problem would stem from?

    I posted this as well in another topic and am still awaiting a response.

    I thought of a JS problem as well but as Raproo stated I have made no major changes to the site. Meteor just stopped working.

    Josh, I know you're busy but some kind of direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Never mind Josh. Got it.

    It was the BP Template Pack JS / AJAX causing the issue.

    Works fine now.

    @raproo Ah, did you build your theme from scratch? It sounds like none of the scripts for Meteor Slides are loading, did you include the wp_head function in the head of your header.php file?

    @JLeuze yes, still building from scratch actually. no i did not add that function to the head. i just did and now the images are showing a nice slideshow as intended, however when i roll over with the mouse they are jumping down the page to expose the next & previous buttons... home.php currently looks like this:

    <head>
    	<?php get_header();?>
    	<?php wp_head();?>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    	<div id="headerSlideshow">
    		<?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?>
    
    	</div>

    With some themes the nav needs to be inline instead of block, try adding this in your theme:

    .meteor-slides.navhover ul.meteor-nav {
    	display: inline !important;
    }

    This is a conflict with your theme, maybe the jQuery in your theme has some bugs that are coming up with jQuery 1.8.3.

    The first error is coming from a theme file, fastblog.js:

    Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: h9,h3,h2,

    I don't see a reference to "h9" tags in the script, but maybe check the theme settings or something, it will have problems targeting h9 tags since those don't exist.

    The second error is from page.js, which doesn't seem to be part of the theme, maybe it is being added by a plugin, or maybe in the header.php of your theme.

    First thing I would do is deactivate your other plugins and confirm that none of them is causing this problem, like the page.js error, try to narrow down where that is coming from.

    Second, in your theme I would try temporarily disabling page.js in the header or functions file and test it to see if the slideshow works when that script isn't running.

    Thanks, I just know that I must use <?php wp_head();?>
    Have a same problem, now solved.

    But why the height is so tall?
    it use the height: 100% !important; for div.meteor-slides

    not the height of the element style.

    I work on localhost, too bad can't give a link.

    @dipovespo Sorry, I couldn't say for sure without seeing the site. The 100% is to get the slideshow to scale responsively, it shouldn't cause the height to go beyond the max size of the slideshow, but you could try changing the height to auto.

    Hey Josh. I updated to WP 3.5 and the meteor-slidshow in the home page doesn't show. The url is:

    http://www.bcninteriorismo.com/

    The slideshow place is at the beginning of the main content, after the first pale yellow box. I've checked with Firebug in Firefox and with Chrome Developer and didn't find any JS error. I also have deleted the JQuery files inserted from my theme and it seems that it only loads the JQuery from WP, the 1.8.3 at this moment. I've tried to disable the other plugins but the error persists and tried with Thesis 1.8.5 and it doesn't work either.

    Thanks for trying to help. Happy New Year 2013.

    @tvcdev The slideshow is there, but the slides don't have any images. Try editing one of the slides and seeing if it has a slide image, you might have to reattach the images.

    Thanks a lot Josh. Your plugin didn't have anything wrong. It was all my fault, sorry. In the same days I updated WP to v.3.5 I tried to clean the wp_posts table. It gets cluttered from all the revisions, as it inserts a record each time you change something in any post. It's useful when you are creating new content, as you can recover previous material, but it gets your DB much bigger.

    I deleted the records with post_status = "revision", which seems that is the right thing to do. But later I went further and deleted the post_status = "inherit", and that's where it seems that were the info of the attached images. A restore of a backup got it ok again. I did an upgrade.php of the bd, as the restore was from a previous WP version, so it all seems fine again.

    Regards. tvc

    Update on above issue with Meteor Slides. I finally got my meteor slides to work. After changing numerous things, and checking each time to see if the changes would make a difference in whether the slide header showed up or not, nothing was working until I deleted the Meteor Slides from the widget area that I had it in, and resetting up the widget again. Bingo. It now works find. My issue has been resolved. Hope this might help others also.

    @keyngosh This issue isn't restricted to just Meteor Slides, I tested the featured images on regular blog posts and the image doesn't stay set there either.

    I tested your other plugins and found that the problem was with All-in-One Event Calendar by Timely. I deactivated that and now the featured images work on Meteor Slides and blog posts. Judging from the number of people that flagged that event calendar broken with WP 3.5, I'd say the plugin is having some problems right now.

    Although you could very well run into some slideshow issues with Meteor Slides. I see that right now you have six slideshow plugins activated, that is bound so cause some conflicts and even if they all play nice together you'll be running a ton of extra scripts and slowing your site down. I'd recommend using just one slideshow plugin, or if you are testing them, activate one at a time to avoid problems.

    Its Quite Weird that After deactivating the other slide shows the same problem reoccurs. and then the images cannot display in i.e 9.

    Maybe that plugin was just a coincidence, I know that if I deactivate all the plugins but Meteor Slides and test it it works. I would try doing the same, and then reactivating the plugins one at a time until it breaks, then you will have the culprit!

    @jleuze - so i had to take a break from working on my theme for a while. now i'm back at it and getting around to testing in a variety of browsers. in IE i'm getting the image jump on roll over... previously setting nav to "inline" fixed this for all other browsers...
