Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » meteor slides appears in banner all pages except event calendar page

  • Resolved mgason


    I have the meteor slides in my theme banner. It works on all pages. It does not work on the “calendar page” This is using the event calendar plugin. It uses the category “events” which is then added to my menu.
    The slideshow is added in header.php.
    The meteor slides div is there but shows no height and no slides in firebug
    I added another category to my menu and opened that, banner worked fine. I guess it is a clash with the calendar, any ideas?

    Hi Mark, I’ll test them together and try to see what is wrong. It looks to me like the event calendar loop is breaking the slideshow loop.

    I used to use The Event Calendar quite a bit and have used it with Meteor Slides in the past, but I’m not sure if I actually used them together on the same page before.

    I ca not swear by it as I have been working more on other parts of the site until now, but I thought the slideshow was working in the banner on the events page. It may be something i have done, although there is only one header.php
    I did update wordpress to 3.1.2.
    Again the header works on other pages though???
    Did you see the link to the site which ended up on “thanks mark” in my previous post?
    It is basically twenty ten theme with a few mods.

    thanks again

    I tested The Events Calendar with Meteor Slides and confirmed that it does break the slideshow loop when they are on the same page.

    I don’t have a quick solution to fix that though. I don’t think The Events Calendar supports custom post types, and since it has been abandoned and only the pro version is being developed, support for custom post types will probably never be added.

    ah I was wondering about the pro version, so it is different.
    Does it support custom posts?
    Any idea if the pro one would not break the slideshow?
    I have no problem blowing $30 if it works.

    Do we have a mutual friend, Toby Cryns?
    Although I am in Australia right now I live in Minneapolis.

    PS the “get in touch with me” link on your portfolio page does not work 😉

    The pro version is pretty different, it actually uses a custom post type for events, so there’s a chance it works better with other post types. I think I might have the pro version, I’ll check and see if I can test them.

    Yeah, I know Toby! Thanks for the heads up on that broken link.

    I tested Meteor Slides with the pro version and they do work fine together. The only issue I ran into was that the CSS of the next link for the calendar is affecting the next link of the slideshow, but this is easily fixed by adding this rule to your stylesheet:

    .meteor-nav a {
        text-align: left;

    If you do want to go with this plugin, I would recommend the pro version since the free version isn’t being maintained any more. I have used the free version on several sites and ran into issues with it.

    awesome support, thanks!!
    I will get the pro version, and remind Toby what a great guy you are 😉
