Meteor Slides
[resolved] Slideshow per page (multiple slideshows) (26 posts)

    Thanks for the nice simple plugin.
    Would like to add multiple slideshows, settings (transitions etc.) can be exactly the same.
    For example I have set up a slide called 'Home' and a slide called 'Services'. Would it be possible to add the slide 'Home' to the Home page and the slide 'Services' to the Services page.
    I'd like to do this via the template files and or via the pages in the WordPress Admin.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Mark, thanks for checking out Meteor Slides!

    This plugin currently only supports one slideshow, but in a future version I am planning to add support for multiple slideshows.

    Cool, easy usability was one of my main goals with Meteor Slides.

    I should hopefully be have the multi-slideshow feature added to the plugin within the next month.

    This plugin looks to be one of the best I found so far for slideshows, but the inability to add multiple slideshows is a major (and its only) drawback.

    Great plugin - I'm after putting multi slideshows on the same page, if thats possible? I think you'll be awash with coffee as soon as you bring the multi slideshows update out :)

    Thanks pwhitty, I've got multiple slideshows working in a development version of Meteor Slides, so it shouldn't much longer before it is released. Yes, it should support multiple slideshows on the same page.

    hi JLeuze, thanks for your great work
    do you have a development version with multi slideshows working together on the same page? I would like to test it!

    Hi Paolo, the latest version of Meteor Slides supports multiple slideshows, you should be able to use more than one on the same page.

    yes. but when I click to "next image" on gallery 1, the images on gallery 2 change too. and the Slideshow Navigation "paged" option shows the sum of both galleries. any suggestions?

    Ah, I have tested multiple slideshows together, but not with navigation.

    I'll do some testing and see if I can fix that but it's really designed for those multiple slideshows to be on different pages, so it might not be doable.

    any news?
    I'm not a guru but, what the main issue having multiple slideshows working together on the same page?
    just because I would like to try solve it. thanks!

    The main issue is that a single instance of "cyle" is loaded for the jQuery Cycle plugin. Each set of prev/next buttons have the same class, so clicking any of them runs the same jQuery in each slideshow.

    If you take a look at the jQuery Cycle navigation demo page, there are multiple slideshows on a page working independently, but each has its own unique cycle.

    The challenge is to get the navigation to be named dynamically.

    is more tricky than I thought..
    should I keep the cycle in js/slideshow.js or can I move it just beneath each slideshow?

    I just released Meteor Slides 1.3.1 which supports navigation for multiple slideshows on the same page, thanks Paolo for your help in solving this problem!

    Really nice plug-in! I'm wondering if it is possible to have multiple, but different sized slideshows? For instance I'm currently using it as a banner slideshow above my sidebars on just the home page, but would like to create another small slideshow to either put in the sidebar on one page or above the text in the content area of the page.

    Thanks!
