Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » Nice plugin – comments and suggestions

  • Resolved PinkishHue


    Hi, thank you for this plugin, it’s so easy to use and has worked very well for me on multiple websites without any issues.

    A couple of queries/requests:

    – Is it possible to add the options of different sizes for slides depending on the slideshow. Having one setting for all slideshows is a little limiting.

    – Is it possible to stop the width and height being hardcoded in to the containing div that surrounds the slideshow? I think this should be handled via the stylesheet (not sure if there’s some reason this is needed?)

    Thanks again, nice plugin 🙂

    Hi, you’re welcome, thanks for trying my plugin.

    Yes, all the slideshows are the same size by default, but you can use metadata to change the size. Check out my tutorial on multiple slideshows with different sizes for more info.

    Meteor Slides uses the jQuery Cycle plugin to power the slideshows, this script is expecting to get a specific height and width. Some of the sizing is handled in the stylesheet, but the JavaScript needs to know and use the size to get to all work correctly. But because Meteor Slides is responsive, the height and width in the settings are only the max dimensions, it can shrink from there to fit other sizes.

    Have you run into any issues with the sizing or is there something you weren’t able to do?

    No, the images seem to resize perfectly when viewed on a mobile device, no problems there.

    I was just looking at it from a coders point of view and am out of the habit of using hard coded widths and heights on a div these days so it suprised me, but I guess it’s really not an issue if everything works as it should, and it does. Thanks for the explanation.

    The meta data information is very helpful, I will try that out on my own sites, but I fear if I pass a site on to a client they will (usually) not understand or remember any of the instructions in regards to adding details to the shortcode. If it could be managed via the plugin options pages that would be incredibly useful.

    Thanks for your reply 🙂

    No problem, yeah for end users using uniformly sized slideshows is much easier to manage, different sized slideshows is definitely more advanced, for when you need to do something custom.
