FAQ

I posted a URL to a SlideShare presentation, but it was not replaced with the presentation

The plugin requires such links to be on its own line and not hyperlinked. Check if both the condition are fulfilled or not.

I want to control maximum dimensions of the presentation

Use the following format:

[embed width=”max-width”] link to the presentation [/embed]

replace max-width with the maximum width needed. Using the shortcode format described above, the URL won’t need to be on its own line.
