Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » Post type Settings

  • Hi Josh, thanks for great plugin now responsive! I have just a little problem because I ‘m using a theme that has already a post type called ‘slide’ and everything mixed up! So I decided to change your post-type name, i guess everywhere it needed to and it seems working properly with the new name. The only thing that I cannot fix is that the “Setting” are still under the theme post type, it’s just the position because as far as I can see they are controlling the right slideshow. Please, in which file or function I need to look for to move that? Thanks a lot!

    You’re welcome! I really would not recommend changing the slide post type name for Meteor Slides. That name is used in quite a lot of places so it would be tough to fully switch it, and you would no longer be able to update the plugin without losing your changes.

    Meteor Slides intentionally uses the generic slide post type, it’s supposed to be the only slideshow, not meant to be used with others, so you sort of pick the one you want to use.

    In your case, if you need both, I would recommend changing the custom post type in your theme. You are probably making other changes to your theme or using a custom theme so you don’t need to worry about updating it. Also most custom post types built into themes are pretty simple, just registers the post type and queries it, so it would be easier to change there.



    Hi Josh, thank you very much and sorry for my late reply. I need to use both beacause the slideshow in my theme is made only for the homepage and it is controlled in the back end in such a way that I cannot destiny other slides for other pages. I will try as you suggested to do the opposite but I fear that I have to do the same work that I have done on your plugin (modify the instance in more files). Plus I know very little php, I just go by intuition. I’ll give a try! Thanks for now!
