Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » [Plugin: Meteor Slides] Slides are wrong size in HTML, rotate OK though

  • Resolved Daniel Payne


    My site at has the slideshow on the home page however in the HTML the width and height values are incorrect.

    I want slides to be sized in a 600×600 pixel area, some slides are portrait some are vertical orientation.

    The first slide is improperly sized as 600×191 pixels, and the second slide is improperly sized as 401×200 pixels. I have no idea how these wrong sizes got created because in the WordPress Dashboard this images look OK and were uploaded with full size.

    Does this plugin support different sized images in the same slideshow? If not, then I’ll find another one to use.

    Hi, Meteor Slides does support different sized images, but you will get the best quality if you prep the images to fit the slideshow in an image editor first.

    What are the original dimensions of these images? How is the 600×191 image improperly sized, it can’t be more than 600px wide, is the height wrong?

    It looks like there is some extra code and pre tags wrapped around the slideshow, make sure to paste the shortcode into the HTML editor to avoid adding extra HTML tags that can conflict with the slideshow.

    One image is 401 pixels wide X 600 pixels tall, the other image is 628 pixels wide X 800 pixels tall.

    The HTML code being produced is taking the 628×800 and making it 628×200 pixels.

    The image of 401×600 is turning out with HTML of 401×200 pixels.

    Very odd behavior.

    I don’t really have time to debug your plugin and just wish that it worked.

    I deleted both slides then added them again.

    The image of 401×600 pixels is now re-sized correctly to fit my constraints of 400 pixels per side.

    The larger image of 628×800 pixels is incorrectly being re-sized as 400×400 pixels instead of 314×400 pixels.

    Still not working.

    It looks like I’ll have to use NextGen Gallery instead….

    The image dimensions are not going to beyond what is set in the slideshow settings. It looks like the one image was uploaded when you had this set to 600, and one when it was set to 400.

    If you upload an image that is too large it will be cropped, not shrunk. Although you can use images with different dimensions, higher quality results are achieved with consistently sized slide images.

    OK, thanks for the clarification.

    I cannot really use this plugin because I receive images of varying sizes and I just need the slideshow to re-size them correctly for me.

    Sorry, by default Meteor Slides is intended for slides that are all the same size as the slideshow. Images that are larger than that are automatically cropped to fill the slides. The featured image function in WordPress is really geared towards uniform images.

    Like I said, you can use the plugin with different sized images, but a bit more care must be taken with the images.

    Another simple slideshow plugin that you could try is WP-Cycle, that might handle images in a way that better suits your needs.



    I’ve got a similar problem, all the slides are the same size 710×310, but the plugin seems to be cuttin the top and bottom off each image, making them 710×200.

    I’ve used this plugin before and loved it so thought I’d use it again, but to no avail.

    Hi Chris, can you post a link to the slideshow you’re having this problem with?
