Meteor Slides
[resolved] Customized Slideshow from Post Images (4 posts)

    Hi,

    First of all, great plugin. I looked at a few other similar ones, but this was by far the simplest one to get to work for me. Question:

    I want to create a customized slideshow which uses images from the 4 - 5 or more recent posts on my site (it is currently only in test environment, so I don't have a link to share). I've been able to use the following to retrieve images for simple display purposes:

    http://www.wprecipes.com/how-to-get-the-first-image-from-the-post-and-display-it

    However, what I'd like to know is how to create a function in php (or where the function currently exists) which generates individual slideshows--I hoping once I know where to look I can modify the code to grab the images I want using the code from the above link (or something similar).

    Cheers,
    Michael

    If you want a query similar to the one that loads the slide posts, you could start from the meteor-slideshow.php file in the plugin and use a modified copy of that to load images from blog posts instead.

    Great, thanks. I should be able to figure something out from the file now that I know where to look!

    Cheers,
    Michael
