More Slideshows

A couple of weeks ago, we added support for embedding RockYou slideshows. The feedback has been very positive and people have been requesting more slideshows, in particular ones from Slideshare.net and Slide.com.

Slideshare is a great service that enables the sharing of PowerPoint and OpenOffice presentations. There are lots of interesting presentations on their site and you can upload your own and then embed them into a blog post or page via a simple shortcode that’s listed next to all of the presentations on their site.

Slide.com allows you to upload photos and turn them into a slideshow which you can then embed into a blog post or page. They have created a nifty link for us that lets you create a show and then embed it to WordPress.com when you’re done. We also support Slide.com guestbooks in a similar fashion (they allow your friends and readers to leave photos and video comments).

    Now that’s nifty. I remembered one wordpresser was trying to use this on his blog and couldn’t figure out what to do. Although this is included in the wp.com FAQ, apparently the code didn’t work. So now that it can be embedded, this is a great addition.

    Enabling the Flickr flash “badge” would be a great improvement, as well as allowing us to imbed slideshows from Webshots . In my opinion those two are more used and more useful than Slide.com or Slidshare.net, can’t we get widgets and embed codes from websites and applications we already use rather than having to switch to other means??

    Thanks though, WordPress is the best implementation of blog software. Keep up the good work.
