Meteor Slides is awesome, what can I do to help?

I add a slide, save or publish it, and then it's missing or not found, what gives?

Every post needs a title, make sure to give your slide a title where is says "Enter title here". This title is mostly used just to label them in the backend, but it will also be used as the title of your link if you add a link.

I added an image to my post, why isn't it showing up in the slide?

Make sure to click "Use as featured image" after uploading your image. If the image is added correctly to the slide, you should see a thumbnail of that image in the Slide Image metabox.

How can I switch the order of the slides?

The slides load in the order they were published, you can change the publish date of a slide post to switch the order. If you'd like drap-and-drop slide sorting, try a plugin like Post Types Order.

Why is the slideshow covering up my dropdown menus?

The z-index on the slideshow is higher than the dropdowns, causing them to be layered below the slides. Lower the z-index of .meteor-slides or raise the z-index of your dropdowns until the dropdowns are above the slideshow.

How do I customize the slideshow's CSS stylesheet?

Copy meteor-slides.css from /meteor-slides/css/ to your theme's directory to replace the plugin's default stylesheet. If you have navigation enabled, be sure to copy the buttons.png, next.png, and prev.png files to your theme's images folder and update the image paths, or create new graphics to replace them.

How do I customize the slideshow's loop template?

Copy meteor-slideshow.php from /meteor-slides/ to your theme's directory to replace the plugin's default slideshow loop. Learn more about customizing the slideshow template for Meteor Slides.

I installed Meteor Slides, and now my theme or plugin's jQuery goodies are broken!

Your theme or plugin is probably loading an extra copy of jQuery from the theme or plugin, or a third party server. This is unnecessary because WordPress already uses jQuery and it is included in the WordPress install. Meteor Slides loads the version that is within WordPress, to fix this, change your theme or plugin to use the copy of jQuery that comes with WordPress, like this <?php wp_enqueue_script("jquery"); ?>.

It's also possible that a script in your theme or another plugin is using the "$" shortcut instead of "jQuery", which will break because WordPress loads jQuery in "no conflict" mode. Try inspecting the site with Firebug or another tool to look for JavaScript errors.

I just installed Meteor Slides, but the Slides menu is missing, where do I go?

If the Slides menu is missing, you probably have the Members plugin activated. Meteor Slides supports the Members plugin, so if you have them both running you can use Members to choose which roles can manage the slides or slideshow settings. Take a look at this blog post for more info on using these plugins together.

Please post any questions or problems in the WordPress.org support forums.
