[Plugin: Meteor Slides] Multiple slideshows: duration, # of slides, and how the settings affect them

  • Hello,
    I am trying to set up multiple slideshows on a page. The “Setting up multiple slideshows” blog post helped me do this, but I have a few more questions:

    1) How do I control duration? I need three different durations. Right now I am trying timeout: 5 in the metadata with no luck. Example: <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow( "Reservations", "timeout: 5, height: 169, width: 310" ); } ?>

    2) How do the overall slideshow settings interact with multiple slideshows in regards to # of slides and the duration?

    Hi, the timeout option should work in the metadata, but you need to set it in milliseconds instead of seconds. Also, make sure you are using the slideshow slug and not the title, it should be lowercase:

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow( "reservations", "timeout: 5000, height: 169, width: 310" ); } ?>

    The slideshow quantity is global and can’t be override. For multiple slideshows I set the quantity to match the slideshow with the most slides, and add less slides to the smaller slideshows.

    Thank you – I will test this now!

    That worked. I would have used milliseconds but a comment (by you I think) on your blog post made it sounds like we had to use actual seconds. Also, thanks for the top on using the slide slug.

    That’s good news. In the options on the settings page I have it setup to use seconds to make it easier, but in the metadata you’ve gotta do it the hard way!
