Click on a jpg thumbnail and open a PPT presentation? (3 posts)

    Hi All,

    Using WP twentytwelve, I will have 15 thumbnail jpgs posted on the page.

    I want a viewer to be able to click-on any of the thumbnails, and someway they view a PowerPoint presentation associated with that thumbnail.

    The PPT can play automatically, or it can be a viewer-activated slide show where the viewer clicks on a forward arrow to go to the next slide.

    It would be really perfect if the PPT opened sort of in a light box, on the same page. It's pretty important to me that the viewer stay on the same page, not open a new window or a new page (so they can click out of the PPT and select another thumbnail to click on to watch).

    I uploaded the PPT to MSOneDrive, and can get an embed code to place the PPT in an Iframe, but dont see a plugin or a way to accomplish the above goal from OneDrive embed.

    Thank you so very much for your help!!!

    Thank you for your reply. I don't think slineonline is it. If you re-read my question, I want to show 15 jpg thumbnails (i.e. 3 rows of 5 small images), and when the viewer clicks on a thumbnail, a lightbox opens that contains a PPT, or an i-frame opens from an embed code witnin the page to play the PPT.

    My issue is not just showing a PPT, it's being able to click on a jpg thumbnail, and the click opens a PPT in an i-frame, lightbox, or whatever on the page.

    Appreciatively,

    Ellis
