Stay connected to the latest UpdraftPlus news.


Last week we released the latest version of Meta Slider Pro – version 2.4. The most significant feature is the updated Post Feed Slide interface.

Post Feed slides extract posts from your WordPress installation and embed them into your slideshow – perfect for a “Latest Posts” slideshow on your homepage!

In 2.4 we’ve modified the slide so you can easily customise what’s displayed in the caption area for each of your post slides. You can now build your own caption templates using common template tags (eg post title, post data, author etc) and HTML.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so check out the screenshot on the right to see the template we’ve used for our post feed example slideshow.

We’ve also added template tags for custom fields and WooCommerce fields – so you can built a Latest WooCommerce Products slider! Keep your eyes peeled for a dedicated WooCommerce blog post shortly.

More updates..

Here’s a full rundown of the updates in version 2.4:

  • Post Feed Slide caption templates
  • CKEditor updated to v4.1
  • IE11 Layer Editor fixes
  • Layer Editor now processes qTranslate shortcodes
  • Video Previews fixed over HTTPS
  • Layer Slide Javascript wrapped up into dedicated jQuery plugin
  • Theme Editor improvements – cleaner CSS output, custom arrows, caption text align, caption border radius

We hope you enjoy the new updates! If you’re not a Pro customer already, you can upgrade here.
