Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » slide image heights are getting cut off

  • Resolved LAmarky


    The images on my slideshow have the heights being cut off. The images should be 647×340 but look to be about 647×211. I put the slideshow on two pages as a test here:



    What may help is… there is an image in my Header for the tagline (They Ain’t Your Grandaddy’s Swing Band!) that just so happens to be the size that the meteor slides are re-sizing to: 647×211. I hope that helps you help me resolve this issue.

    Also, the site was done in Thesis theme.

    It looks like you upload the slide images before setting the current slideshow dimensions. The slide images are cropped to fit the slideshow when you upload them. Try re-uploading the slide images to resize them.

    I didnt think I did, but I just did it again — but nothing changed. :/

    It looks like the slide images were uploaded when the slideshow height was set to 200px. I also see some code tags wrapped around the slideshow shortcode that need to be removed.

    I can take a closer look if you want to send me a login.

    Absolutely, thank you. I’ll send you that in a sec…

    I took a look, the slide images are cropped. I downloaded the full sized image for the first slide, edited the firt slide post, removed the slide image, and re-uploaded the full sized image and the first slide is full sized now.

    If you re-upload the slide images for the rest of the slide posts it should work. Just make sure you re-upload them from your computer and add them to the slide posts, don’t select the slide images already in the media library.

    I also went in and removed the code tags from the slideshow shortcode for you.

    Thanks, Josh. I think I got all that. LOL

    Let me try to do the same to the other images before you close this thread. Working on it now.

    No problem, let me know if you have any trouble updating the other slide images.

    Okay, fixed them all. And I re-ordered them by changing the time uploaded. One more minor thing if you don’t mind…

    The space between the dark black header and the top of the slideshow seems to have gotten wider once I was finished. When you did the single image it was perfect. Any idea why? Ideally, I’d like there to be some consistency where the images and sildesshow images land on the page. The image on this page is perfect:


    But, it gets deeper (more vertical space) where the finished slideshow is:


    Any thoughts on that?

    I actually just played around the fixed the top space issue, but now the text “Welcome!” is touching the slides…

    Would love to get a little space between the images and the text… ideally the same amount as at the top…

    The slideshow doesn’t have any padding or margin by default. With paged navigation or left or right alignment, there is some margin added to make room.

    Otherwise you can style it in your theme to add margin. I added this to the theme’s Custom CSS and it seemed to do the trick:

    #content_area div.meteor-slides { margin: 0 0 20px 0; }

    Perfection. : )

    Thanks for all your help. Have great weekend… I know I will now.
