Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » [Plugin: Meteor Slides] Multiple Slideshows per site with different pixel dimensions

  • Resolved pforget


    Ok I’m a complete newby.

    I was able to cut and past your code into header.php to create the header slideshow per your vimeo instructions without killing my site (Thanks BTW).

    I am wondering if there is a way to run multiple slideshows, but with different dimensions, (i.e. I want to run specifically a header show(s) at 940×198 and a different show on another page at 612×793). is this possible?

    Hi, yes multiple slideshows of different sizes are possible. But you need to make sure that the slideshow settings match those of your largest slideshow or some of your slides will be cropped.

    From there, to make smaller slideshows, you can use metadata to change the size.

    ok guys…. I have the plugin for the slideshow working. i have 4 on the same page. they are coming up vertical… i need them to be horizontal and next to each other…. is that possible? this is the code I am using right now:

    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “donald”, “” );}?>
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “erica”, “” ); } ?>
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “mac”, “” ); } ?>
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “el”, “” ); } ?>

    You’re going to have to float them to the left in your stylesheet.

    thank you.

    This is my first time really using php like this… how would I do that?

    Plugin Author Josh Leuze


    No PHP required, you just need to add a line of CSS:

    .meteor-slides {
    float: left;

    Try adding that to your theme’s style.css file.

    awesome! That worked!!!

    now to get them all centered? what should i do… add </center to the css?

    thank so much!!!

    No, you can try adding auto margins, that sometimes centers things depending on the circumstances:

    .meteor-slides {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 auto;

    Or you might have to manually set them to a value that lines them up how you want them:

    .meteor-slides {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 10px;

    Please help, I’m a 1st time user of Meteor slides. I’m trying to use multiple slide shows. I currently have 2 [meteor_slideshow slideshow=”flooring”] & [meteor_slideshow slideshow=”kitchenbathtile”] I’m using the Weaver 2.0 Theme

    I would like to make more. Each show has about 16 pics. The slide shows are sharing pictures even though they are slugged and the pictures are associated with their perspective slide shows.

    Please see the following URLs, I would like to have each slide show on it’s own page with it’s own list of pics: (Not Sharing pics)

    Please help

    @homebody This page should be loading only the slideshow with the slug of kitchenbathtile:

    But this page is not using a specific slideshow so would load any slides that you have published:

    Wow thanks your right, I was using flooring as the slug but my slug was actually floors.

    No problem, glad to help!

    Love the plugin!
    Well done on it, and a HUGE thanks for sharing

    I have the slideshow settings setup as follows;
    Size Height: 250 Size Width: 670

    Although my content area is max 600px, but I want a slideshow in the header, in the custom designed theme I have created a ‘Textblock’ to house the slideshow – this area (and size for the header slideshow) is 670px wide x 125px — Hence why I set the max size in settings to 670.
    Within the pages I will be placing slideshows on a few pages (different slideshows) and these will be 580px x 250px

    I have placed the following in the header.php file;
    <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow( "head", "width: '670' height: '125'" ); } ?>

    Have I got this wrong? What I am getting is only part of the header slides are visible (middle) – measuring 560 x 113 and ‘next / previous’ arrows are outside the area.

    One suggestion for the plugin, since a few people seem to be having problems with it, would be to be able to set the sizes of different slideshows.

    I am trailing this on a site that I am running locally on the mac with MAMP, so I cant give a URL as the system is not always on.

    Really appreciate any help or guidance
    Cheers, Mark

    Hi guys

    I have 2 slideshows and I want to add both of them and I use snipplet above from Staceyeight:
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “header”, “” );}?>
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “training”, “” );}?>

    But he doesn’t show any of the slideshow above and when use this shortcode: <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?> it shows the first header by default.

    Please advice.

    @mali1 I would try to get one specific slideshow working and go from there. Can you post a link to the page you are working on?

    @jleuze – thanks a lot for coming back to me, I’m stuck with the slideshows.

    If I use the snipplet below it shows the first slideshow by default:
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?>

    But when I define the slideshow name as below, it doesn’t show the slideshow:
    <?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow( “training”, “” );}?>

    Here’s link to the page:

    Thanking you in advance.
