Adding Image Slideshow using Shortcode (4 posts)

    Jetpack says that it supports [slideshow] shortcode but that is for the external service by slideshare.net which doesn't let you add images to it.

    Is there any way to use jetpack shortcode to get images saved in my media library to show up as a slideshow?

    Jetpack offers a slideshow shortcode for use with slide.com, which generates slideshows. There's nothing built-in to Jetpack that allows you to create a slideshow from your Media gallery, however.

    I see slide.com no longer lets you register to create a slideshow anymore though and the link to slide from http://www.slide.com/arrange?cy=wp no longer works. So looks like slide is no longer an option for wordpress users :(

    Can you suggest anything else?

    I found "slideshow" by devpress to work with the short code for this type of thing. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/slideshow/faq/

    The only downside that bothered me with this one is that it cuts off images that are too tall, showing only the top half.

    I noticed nextgen doesn't cut the images off, but unfortunately that one doesn't use [slideshow] automatically like the first plugin I mentioned does. I'm trying to find the balance between these two factors :/

    also might want to disable jetpack to make it work.

    I really want to use this right because I transferred a lot of post-attached galleries from a .com site.
