On SlideBoom site: Select a presentation. Click on Edit button just below the presentation. In the presentation details screen check options: "I want my presentation to be available to anyone online" and "Allow embedding this presentation at other sites". Easy...
Very easy to use and reliable.
Small issue- not being able to join the online support forum as there is no "Accept" button after the "Terms of Agreement".
Forum is open again. Thanks!
Plugin works as promised. Can insert into any article.
Any drawbacks are on the Slidebloom side of the equation. When you upload your slideshow, Slidebloom conversion lengthens it anywhere from 2x-4x in length. Uploaded a 28 sec slide show, it converted to 1:40.
Thanks for the good work here. It's a real time saver -- also avoids the YouTube mess entirely.
See reply below: it is a lack of functionality of slideboom.com NOT the plugin!
(But, in their favure: it make sence that they do not allow passwords in the embedded code...)
Otherwise good product and easy to set up and use. Easy to set up article to view presentation with simple tags.
You’re completely right! This is a 'lack of functionality' of slideboom.
However, if you generate a local flash file with their 'Free Powerpoint to Flash Converter', upload it to your website's server and publish it with one of many Joomla! flash viewers, you’ll have a 'private' presentation.
Not as nice when using my plugin... Thinking of that... I might include such an option in a future version!
