Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » Metadata question

  • I need to insert another slide on my homepage with an image size of 300×300 pixels. I’m not familiar with Metadata. What’s the metadata for that size of images? Thanks!

    The shortcode would look something like this:

    [meteor_slideshow slideshow="homepage" metadata="width: 300, height: 300"]

    Do you have a list of the various meta data shortcodes we can use with the plugin?

    That would be really helpful for those of us less experienced. Thanks for a great plugin.

    Here is a list of the options for jQuery Cycle, you can learn more about using metadata here.

    [meteor_slideshow slideshow=”homepage” metadata=”width: 300, height: 300″]

    This was the type of example I was looking for as there is no documentation which shows you how to use the shortcodes to create different sized slideshows with different settings from those you put in the settings page.

    The jQuery Cycle list is fine but no instructions on turning that into shortcode and many people wouldn’t know how to do it. I had read all the posts you referred me to before posting my questions, so I hope I have made myself clearer.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I don’t have a list of the metadata added to shortcodes, there are infinite possibilities with all the different metadata options.

    The code example in this thread is a fine starting place, you can change the slideshow slug and dimension values of that shortcode to load a specific slideshow of any size.

    Other options can be easily added to the list, they just need to be comma-seperated. Just remember that they are all in the same format with one exception.

    The metadata options are formatted like this:


    The only exception is with values that are numbers. A text value would have single quotes, but a number would have no quotes, like this:
