As you may know, Your Web Department offers a nifty Image Gallery tool that lets you create and customize interactive image slideshows. But sometimes it may be interesting to simply upload a slideshow to your website that you created in PowerPoint for instance and share it with the largest number of people possible.
Your Web Department now integrates seamlessly with SlideShare, the world's largest community for sharing presentations. You can easily insert any slideshows uploaded there – either by you or by others – into your YWD website. Here’s how.
First, go to to http://www.slideshare.net and select the slideshow you’d like to add to your website. In this example, we will not be showing how you can upload your own slideshow there, but it’s pretty straightforward. By the way, creating an account there is free (they also offer paid plans with additional features).
Click the slideshow’s Share button:
Highlight and copy the contents of the URL field:
Now go to your website’s back-end in Your Web Department, to the page where you’d like to insert the slideshow. You’ll be using a Word Processor content block for that (either an existing one or new). Click the Insert YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, etc. icon:
Although it’s most frequently used to insert YouTube videos, this tool is now extremely versatile and can handle a multitude of other services, including SlideShare. Paste the URL you just copied there, click OK and save.
That’s it! Preview your page, and the slideshow will automatically appear there. Enjoy.
