Meteor Slides update for WordPress 4.4 & Twenty Sixteen

I just released Meteor Slides 1.5.5. This is a small update that adds support for responsive images using srcset in WordPress 4.4 and fixes some Twenty Sixteen theme conflicts.

WordPress 4.4

Meteor Slides has been responsive for years now, scaling the slideshow images down for smaller screens and devices. But WordPress 4.4 adds new built in support for responsive images using srcset. What this means is that rather than loading the full size images and shrinking them at smaller sizes, it will actually detect the size of the screen or device and load smaller images. This will reduce the file size of the images that are loaded on smaller screens, speeding up the load time of your websites!

Meteor Slides widget update for WordPress 4.3

Today I released Meteor Slides 1.5.4. This tiny update changes the code for setting up the slideshow widget for WordPress 4.3, which will be coming out soon. This only updates how the widget is added to WordPress and doesn’t change the admin interface for the widget or how slideshow widgets display on the frontend of a site.

WordPress 4.3

With this update Meteor Slides is fully compatible with the current version of WordPress, 4.2.2, and the next release, 4.3. I would definitely recommend that everyone take the time to update WordPress, Meteor Slides, and the rest of their plugins to the latest versions!

A small Meteor Slides update

I released Meteor Slide 1.5.3 yesterday. This update has some minor stylesheet tweaks to fix conflicts with the new default theme, TwentyFifteen, as well as some other common theme issues. Meteor Slides 1.5.3 also includes a new Norwegian translation and updated Swedish translation.

WordPress 4.1

Meteor Slides has been tested with the latest release of WordPress and is fully compatible. I have also tested the plugin with WordPress 4.0, but this is the minimum requirement. I don’t test any further back than that and I encourage everyone to keep WordPress and all of their themes and plugins updated.

Five stars for Meteor Slides

Ampersand 5 star balloon ride
Meteor Slides recently reached a big milestone, receiving 200 five star ratings on WordPress.org. It has also been getting some great reviews via the new review feature in the plugin directory.

My robot minion Ampersand has been hiding out lately and I haven’t been spending nearly enough time drawing, so I dusted off my Wacom tablet and did some sketching. First I drew Ampersand going on a 5 star balloon ride after hitting 200 ratings and then I drew a spiffy new donate page with buttons for PayPal and my Amazon wishlist. My reading queue is getting out of control!

I just released a plugin update today, Meteor Slide 1.5.1, which includes a few bug fixes and some new and updated translations. It also has one new feature, a slideshow alignment option. Read More
