Shortcode – Slideshare

I used the embed code copied from slideshare:

[slideshare id=10543066&doc=31interestingwaystouseaudioinyourclass-111210091035-phpapp01]

 

This is a quick example of how to use the slideshare embed code. You can upload PowerPoints and other presentations to slideshare.net to share. These can then be embedded.

As always if you have not done so:

  1. Activate The Jetpack plugin
  2. Turn on the shortcode module.

To find the code to embed a slideshare slideshow:

  1. Visit the page on slideshare.
  2. Click the Share button
  3. Copy the WordPress shortcode
  4. In the post or page editor of your blog paste in the code. When the post or post is published and viewed the slideshow will be embedded like the one above.

Shortcode Presentation

This slideshow could not be started. Try refreshing the page or viewing it in another browser.

I an not sure how often this would be useful in practise. You need to be happy writing square brackets and slashed around your text, but it produced a reasonable presentation.

You can move through the slides with arrow keys, or hover over from buttons and a button to ‘full-screen’ the slideshow.

Here is a screenshot of the editor for this post:

Widget Visibility

Control which pages your widgets appear on with Widget Visibility.

To control visibility, expand the widget and click the Visibility button next to the Save button, and then, choose a set of visibility options.

For example, if you wanted the Archives widget to only appear on category archives and error pages, choose “Show” from the first dropdown and then add two rules: “Page is 404 Error Page” and “Category is All Category Pages.”

You can also hide widgets based on the current page. For example, if you don’t want the Archives widget to appear on search results pages, choose “Hide” and “Page is Search results.”

On this site we have used this to show different widgets on particular categories.

The Settings are added to the widgets settings:

You can add more blogs to show on more than one category or page, or indeed, hide on a category or page.

Activate Jetpack plugin, if not already activated Dashboard->Plugins

Activate the ‘Mobile Theme’ Module- Dashboard->Jetpack-> Settings

Adjust the setting of widgets as wanted.

Mobile Theme

Jetpack’s Mobile Theme displays your content in a clean, uncluttered interface, making it easy for mobile visitors to scan your site. Furthermore, we took special care to make the mobile theme as lightweight as possible to ensure faster loading times.

Custom Content Types

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 14.33.48

This module will let you add two different types of content, portfolio projects and testimonials. These are a bit like pages as they stand outside the chronological flow of post. But they can also be organised with Types and tags. Finally they can be displayed on a page via a shortcode.

Activate Jetpack plugin, if not already activated Dashboard->Plugins

Activate the ‘Custom Content Types’ Module- Dashboard->Jetpack-> Settings

Enable Portfolio Projects and/or Testimonials in Dashboard-> Settings -Writing.

Set up a page to display the projects.

You add a project in the same way as a post or a page. Featured Images are important if you are going to display al grid of your projects using the shortcode.

Here is a an example of using the shortcode.

Site Icon

Site Icon lets you create an icon for your site. This icon will be used as favicon, mobile icon, and Tile on Windows 8 computers.

Site Icons are now added to Glow Blogs through the Customiser in the Site Identity section.

Activate Jetpack plugin, if not already activated Dashboard->Plugins

Activate the Sharing Module- Dashboard->Jetpack-> Sharing

To add a new icon to your site, SettingsGeneral → Site Icon, and upload an icon.

On this blog we are using this image:
