[closed] Missing Slideshow Button? (5 posts)

    I am trying to add a slideshow to one of my posts but the "insert slideshow" button mentioned in various tutorials seems to be nonexistent, only a gallery is available. The shortcode isn't working either.

    I'm thinking the issue might be my theme, Custom Community, or just something obvious that I've missed somehow...

    Anyone have any advice?

    I also use custom community, with a slideshow that also has shortcode and an insert button in the toolbar, what slideshow are you using?

    The main-page slide is working fine, it's getting a slideshow into a post that seems to be the problem. I tried to follow the instructions on these tutorials exactly:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/slideshows/

    But I'm not seeing the "insert slideshow" button, just "insert gallery."

  4. You're looking for a WordPress.COM feature that does not exist in WordPress.ORG.

    WordPress.COM and a self-hosted WordPress.ORG software installation are different and not all the add-ons at .COM have been brought into the .ORG version. There may be a plugin for that but I'm not aware of which one it could be.

    See this article for an explanation of the differences.
