Took me a while to locate the id number but once this was completed it worked perfectly, much better than other free packages.

Highly recommend.*****

This is just what I was looking for. I couldn't get &f=1 for full-screen or &a=center to work so I just set the width and height and it works perfectly. Thank you.

Much better than others I tried. For powerpoint presentations, it preserves features that are automatically removed in slideshare! Just ONE piece of advice to newbies: be sure that that is is PUBLISHED as well as activated. (Sorry if the wording isn't quite right, I'm using a Spanish version of Joomla!)

This was the perfect thing for our powerpoints to be presented on our website as an interactive click and present or like a movie! This rocks!

Does what it says and is free. The other review from the other review below is completely OFF. This works in 2 seconds and gets the player just how I want it with as little code as possible.

Great Job - Great Extension - and SlideBoom is Great Website too,.

After installing this plugin, following the given instructions, registering an account with slideboom and uploading a presentation I discovered that the wordpress tag is not present on slideboom. This makes the plug in unusable a complete waste of time and effort!

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...

This plug-in is fabulous allowing PowerPoint presentations loaded up to Slideboom.com to be embedded in one or more Joomla articles.

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!

Great job!!!

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.

Ditto to the previous comment. I could really use this plugin if it would allow me to show private presentations on a site i am developing for non-public project. Too bad.
Owner's reply

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...)

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 slideboom.com. 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!
