    Do it just like how the link is added to the slide image conditionally:

    <?php // Adds slide title with Slide URL link
    if ( get_post_meta( $post->ID, "slide_url_value", $single = true ) != "" ): ?>
    	<a href="<?php echo get_post_meta( $post->ID, "slide_url_value", $single = true ); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    <?php // Adds slide title without Slide URL link
    else: ?>
    	<?php the_title(); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    unfortunately that code doesn’t work. the conditions aren’t being met in the if statement and so it just displays the title.
    to be clear, though, I don’t want the title to link to the url that you assign to the slide, I want the title to act just like the pager dots…to toggle between slides. Currently it assigns the appropriate class so that I can style the title to reflect the current banner, but I can’t change the slide using the title link.
    This is in my custom meteor-slideshow.php file:

    <div id="meteor-buttons<?php echo $slideshow; ?>" class="meteor-buttons">
    	<?php // Loop which loads the pager nav with slideshow titles
    	while ( $meteor_loop->have_posts() ) : $meteor_loop->the_post(); ?>
    		<a class="meteor-title meteor-title-<?php echo $meteor_count; ?>" href="#"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    	<?php endwhile; ?>
    	<?php // Reset the slideshow loop
    	wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
    </div><!-- .meteor-buttons -->

    Sorry, I misread that, thought your were trying to add the text at a caption.

    Did you also create a custom slideshow.js file in your theme? Can you post a link to the site you’re working on?

    @jleuze : I faced exactly same problem as smeyer012 and found that instead of #meteor-buttons selector it should be .meteor-buttons selector in the code that has to be appended after width: $slidewidth, in custom slideshow.js file. So the correct :eq() call is

    pagerAnchorBuilder: function(idx, slide) {
    	return '.meteor-buttons a:eq(' + idx + ')';

    @smeyer012 : I hope this will solve your problem.

    Thanks for pointing that out subharghya, I tested that with a single slideshow, but with multiple slideshows the ID will be different, so the class should be used. I updated the documentation for that.



    Awesome. Works now. Thanks.

    No problem!
