How to use Meteor Slides

Meteor Slides makes it simple to create slideshows with WordPress by adding a custom post type for slides. Easily create slideshows and publish them with a shortcode or widget. The slideshows are powered by jQuery Cycle and have over twenty transition styles to choose from.

Adding a Slide

Creating a slide is very similar to adding a page or a post. Go to Slides -> Add New to create a slide.


Each slide needs a title, name the slide so it can be easily found later.


To add an image to a slide, click the Set featured image link to load the WordPress media uploader. Upload an image, or browse the media library for one.

After uploading or selecting the image, click the Use as featured image link to add the image and then close the media uploader. A thumbnail of the image should now appear in the Slide Image metabox.


Optionally, a link can be added to a slide. The full URL should be added to the Slide Link metabox, such as


If any slideshows have been created, a slide can be added to them by selecting the slideshows from the Slideshows metabox.

Changing the slide order

Slides are sorted chronologically, just like blog posts. To change the order of a slide, simple edit the slide’s publish date to sort it up or down.
