gist embed

I just noticed that you can embed gists by pasting the url to the gist into the post editor on a line of its own. This uses the shortcode module of the Jetpack plugin so you need to Active the plugin and then the shortcode module.

this example is an applescript that creates auto-complete gifs for google searches. Not something many folk would need.

Scratch

Glow Blogs now support the embedding of scratch, just paste in the URL to a project.

 

 

Here is a gif showing how I added this. It is so quick you don’t see the URL¬†I paste in.

Scratch is becoming more popular in Scottish classrooms all the time, now glow users can display their projects on their blogs.

 

Multiple image uploads on iOS

It is now possible to upload multiple photos on iOS using Mobile Safari to Glow Blogs. I am not sure when this change happened and if it is due to upgrades to iOS/Safari or the recent WordPress upgrade on Glow Blogs.

Here is a gallery uploaded from my iPad.

And here is another one showing the steps taken to produce the one above.

Embed Slideshare Example

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.

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.
