slideshows for WordPress MU

Now you can add slideshows to your WordPress-MU blogs.

Get the slideshre-mu plugin here (just change the .txt extension to .php).

Drop the slideshare-mu.php file into your wp-content/plugin and activate it. If you are running WordPress MU just drop it in the wp-content/plugins-mu directory.

The usage is the same as it is for users:

Slideshows and PowerPoint presentations from can be embedded into your blog posts and pages via a Slideshare shortcode. Shortcodes can be found by going to any slideshow on the Slideshare site and copying the following embed code:


The code can then be pasted into any blog post or page to make the slideshow show up.

    I like the look and feel of this widget. I’d normally use this for regular pictures, but I was thinking about work when I stopped by and the word ‘slide’ made me think of powerpoint slides.

    I think I might try this with some work slide shows which might take up less space than a video presentation.
