So, as some of you may have already noticed, the other day I wrote several new blog posts each containing multiple slide shows. Now if you are familiar with WordPress you might know that this is no easy task since currently WordPress’ capabilities do not allow for blog posting with this feature. Currently, WordPress only allows you to upload one “batch” of images per blog post; then the images from this “batch” can either be displayed in a gallery (as individual thumbnails all lumped together in one section of your blog posting), or as part of a single slideshow. However, as someone who loves photography and generally takes way too many photos of anything I like to organize my slideshows into themed sets, or “batches”, and then spread the various slideshows throughout the relevant parts of a particular posting. Therefore, I wasn’t willing to accept a simple “sorry, that’s just not possible” response, so I took to the world wide web to help me solve this little problem I was facing. After doing some light online research (thank you Google) I came across this website: http://www.slideshare.net/.
Slideshare allows users to create as many individual slideshows as they would like. After each slideshow is created one can then simply get a customized HTML code to link that slideshow back to their own blog in WordPress – GENIUS!
