Meteor Slides
[resolved] Making a slideshow unclickable? (5 posts)

    I'm running a slideshow on the front page of ashleywoodturning.com (theme is Mantra) and when you click the slideshow, it takes you to a "page not found" message. My slides have no link URL and I cannot find an option to disable the click ability.

    How can I remove click function on the slides?

    (Fantastic plugin, by the way!)

    Hi, this is because Mantra is filtering all of the post thumbnails and adding the permalink of the post to them, not just post thumbnails in the theme.

    You can disable this filter by commenting out line #670 of the theme's functions.php file like this:

    //add_filter( 'post_thumbnail_html', 'thumbnail_link', 10, 3 );

    If you need the permalink added to post thumbnails in the theme for blog posts, add it to the specific featured images, like this:

    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a>

    I am setting up slideshows using your plug-in Meteor Slides and I have looked for the line you referenced above in my theme's functions.php. There is no such function call in my theme. I need the links I set for these slides to either work properly or to not be clickable.

    The page of my development site is at http://rcsdemo.com/pfdev3c/products-services/ and the Meteor Slideshow is the second slideshow on the page under the Header "Quality Products Forged to Specification".

    Can you make any other recommendations?

    I'd like to retract my request. I have just removed the slide links and they are no longer clickable. Thanks!

    Good to hear you got it figured out.
