Embedded Slideshow


This plugin help you to insert a Picasa embedded slideshow to your post or page easily.
This plugin use the WordPress shortcode features, but you don’t need to write even one
character, the plugin is designed user friendly and you insert a flash slideshow to your
post or page through just a few clicks.

The slideshow gadget is a flash provided by Google Picasa Web Album. The pictures or
photos in a slideshow should be put in one of the Picasa web album.

To insert a sexy slideshow to your post, there are three steps you have to do:

  1. Create a new album in Picasa Web and upload the photos or pictures you want to slideshow.
  2. Click the Picasa logo like button on top of the text editor in the Post New View of WP.
  3. Choose an album by click the album cover in the list showed by this plugin.

The use of this plugin is very easy. When you edit a post or a page, if you
want to insert a Picasa Web Album to your post, what you need to do is just
use the shortcode sytax of WP to write a line of code. The format looks like:

Looks complex, eh? But don’t worry, I tried very hard to make it simple and
easy to use. Now you only need to click a wizard button, and the plugin will
get all things done for you.

Arbitrary section

You may provide arbitrary sections, in the same format as the ones above. This may be of use for extremely complicated
plugins where more information needs to be conveyed that doesn’t fit into the categories of “description” or
“installation.” Arbitrary sections will be shown below the built-in sections outlined above.

A brief Markdown Example

Ordered list:

  1. Some feature
  2. Another feature
  3. Something else about the plugin

Unordered list:

  • something
  • something else
  • third thing

Here’s a link to WordPress and one to Markdown’s Syntax Documentation.
Titles are optional, naturally.

Markdown uses email style notation for blockquotes and I’ve been told:

Asterisks for emphasis. Double it up for strong.

<?php code(); // goes in backticks ?>


  • This is the final effect of the slideshow in a post.

  • Click this button to run the wizard.

  • Set your Google account user name.

  • Click the album cover to insert.


Install this plugin and get it work is simply easy. Just download the zip file, and
uncompressed it, then upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Activate
it. Done!


Actually, there is nobody ask me any questions now. ^_^
