  • Is there a way to set it up so that it doesn’t auto transition? I tried setting the “duration” to 0, but that breaks the transitions altogether, causing the arrows not to link at all.

    Strange, that should work. The slideshow works fine when you have a longer duration set?

    Try setting it using metadata instead:

    [meteor_slideshow metadata="timeout: 0"]

    You other option would be to set a very long duration such as “99999”.

    Well, actually, now it seems like the arrows are gone completely.

    I worry that this might be some sort of conflict with the theme I am using because the only plugin I have activated is “contact form 7” which shouldn’t be using jquery. How can I know for sure?

    Thanks for any help!

    Yes, there could be a conflict with your theme. Contact Form 7 uses jQuery, but it uses the copy built into WordPress, as does Meteor Slides.

    But your theme is loading an extra copy of jQuery from a third party which might be causing the problem:

    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    You could try switching to the default theme and testing the slideshow to confirm whether it is a problem with the theme.

    Seems like it is my theme. Is this something that I can go in and simply change within the theme code?

    So I found that piece of code in the header.php file, and just deleted it. I don’t think it screwed anything up as I am only using a small percentage of the theme features anyway. Anyway, that worked!

    Thanks for all your time and for the great plugin! We’ll be sure to buy you a drink over paypal!

    No problem, glad to hear you got it figured out!

    One thing that is happening however is in the archive section, when posts are stacked, the slideshows scroll at the same time even when you only click the top slideshow post. When I use two different slideshows, only the top one scrolls.

    Each slideshow has unique navigation based on that slideshow’s ID so that it doesn’t affect the navigation of other slideshows. But because of that each slideshow should only be used once per page.
