3rd party Module Image Slideshow options Configuration Help



  • Hi All,

    I am loving the MagicMirror. I just need some help with 2 things if you can.

    first up is when i got to a 3rd party Module i the config looks like this

    modules: [
    	{
    		module: 'MMM-ImageSlideshow',
    		position: 'bottom_left',
    		config: {
    			imagePaths: ['modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/example1']
    		}
    	}	
    ]
    

    For me to get it to work i need to edit it to look like this

    {
                  module: "MMM-ImageSlideshow",
                  position: "top_right",
                                config: {
                  imagePaths: ["modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/exampleImages"],
                  }
                  },
    

    Should i be leaving the ```
    modules: [
    ]

    
    Second Question 
    In the Configuration options of the add on [ImageSlideshow](https://github.com/AdamMoses-GitHub/MMM-ImageSlideshow)
    there are options  ```
    fixedImageHeight
    

    were do i put it in the code and were do i place the number value

    Here my Config file

    @paddyhughes said in 3rd party Module Image Slideshow options Configuration Help:

    Should i be leaving the …

    No.

    Add config options according to the readme. Here is how you would add fixedImageHeight

     {
                   module: "MMM-ImageSlideshow",
                   position: "top_right",
                   config: {
                      imagePaths: ["modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/exampleImages"],
                        fixedImageHeight: 300,
                  }
                 },
