The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

Good product and works as advertised. Only problems is you have to make your presentations public in order to use it, meaning if you embed your presentation in your joomla site it can also be found and viewed by anyone directly on This is partially how slideboom is set up. May have to upgrade to the pro version of slideboom to alleviate this issue. I was going to require user registration before viewing the slides, but that doesn't do much for you in this situation.

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!
