    The Slideshare Plugin does not work in WordPress version 2.8.3.

    I also cannot get the plugin (1.6.3) to work with my WP installation 2.8.4. I upgraded from WP 1.7.1 hoping that would solve it but it didn't.

    ISSUE:
    I'm able to install the plugin but have two issues:
    1. I cannot set the default width on the settings page. When I enter say 450 on the settings page and click update, I get a page saying "Are you sure you want to do this?
    Please try again."
    2. When I paste a SlideShare code into the wordpress Rich Text editor I get nothing in the preview pane (as if there isn't anything there).
    Example pasted code: [slideshare id=1840803&doc=healthcarenapkin1-090810220707-phpapp01]

    Please help!
    Thanks!

    I found a fix for it, but only temporarily.

    Make sure you specify a width in the shortcode..

    Before:
    [slideshare id=1953813&doc=flowerpresentation-090904175651-phpapp01]

    After:
    [slideshare id=1953813&doc=flowerpresentation-090904175651-phpapp01&w=425]

    When I looked at the code, it set the width to 0, but I could clearly see that the page is loading the slideshow from slideshare.net.

    What can I say, sometimes, I'm a moron. Fixed in 1.8.4!
