Hey Donald,

As far as I know there is no way to embed a power point into your website. The only way the viewers can view the presentation is to download it. Which very few people will. The best alternative I can think of is to find a powerpoint to flash converter or find an image slideshow script on the web (Dynamic Drive has tons).

Hope this helps

when you create a slideshow (like for your family or something) on the internet and you can put that slide show onto your website. What kind of program is used to make those slideshows?

Hi Donald,
The easiest way to do this is to drag and drop a File widget onto your page. You will find it in the sidebar on the right of your screen under the HTML widget (the icon looks like a computer disk). A file manager will open up and allow you to browse your desktop for a file to upload. When you are done, click "OK" and a link to your file will automatically be created.

To test that your link is working, save and preview your page. When you click on the link the Powerpoint presentation should open up in a new window.

Another alternative is to use slideshare.net to embed your presentation.

1. Sign up for a free account with slideshare.
2. Go to "Upload" at the top of your screen.
3. Upload your file(s). Then click on "Publish" (or "Publish All" if you have more than 1 file).
4. Once your file has been converted, then click on the file you want to embed.
5. On the right-hand side, you will see a green box with "Embed" and a code provided. Please copy this code.
6. In your site builder, drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
7. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
8. When you are done, click "OK" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page.

There is also a way to add slideshow presentation with Google Docs so that it's displayed on the page:

1. Create or upload your presentation to Google Docs.
2. Click on 'publish' on the Google Doc.
3. A new dialogue box will open, change the settings to suit your requirements.
4. Copy the code provided.
5. Go back to your Yola, drag and drop an HTML widget onto the page and paste the code into the dialogue box and press OK.

Hope this helps!

so, using the second option here, I can have the option for it to be embedded? Will the slideshow start automatically when the page is opened?

Depending On What Version of Microsoft office you use you can save it as a windows media video.And then upload it to youtube and embed it into your site
Just an idea

I find this to be one of the easiest slideshows and it has lots of options. It can autoplay and not show the controls. It says its javascript but it will work with Yola free--you just paste it into an html widget. Here's the link: http://www.ricocheting.com/js/slide2....

thanks for that diane, I'll check it out.

I just tried slideshare.net and they seem to have made the slideshow with no animation. What about ricocheting? Is it going to be a plain slide show or will it keep my animation?

No, ricocheting is just a slide show. I didn't realize you had animation. Looks like you found a good solution though. BTW, the colors are much easier on the eyes!

yea, thanks. The colors are more pointed to landscaping too. I chose brown as a tree or soil type of color and green for green stuff (grass, trees). I thought it made it look more landscaping and personal. I also like the banner Craig created for me.

Thanks Craig!

I'm having a problem though with my adwords.

I selected the option to pay $3.33 each day for 30 days ($100) and since I started the campaign two nights ago I've only gotten 30 ad impressions and NO clicks and AdWords shows that my ads aren't costing me anything (obviously bc I've gotten no clicks) but don't they pretty much guarantee that you'll get the number of clicks you want? I've only gotten 30 impressions! :(

ok, here it is.. be sure to play the PowerPoint Presentation.

By the way, does anyone know if I can set the default on the YouTube video to play automatically?

Just to let you know, when I uploaded my ppt (powerpoint) to YouTube it said "successful" but then it actually indicated "failed" on my videos page and the video wouldn't play, then I searched the internet for a powerpoint to video converter and found one for free. It took my powerpoint and turned it into an avi file.

For those that might want a powerpoint to video converter for free...

It seems to be safe, I even think it might have been created by microsoft (but could be wrong) and seems to come with no viruses, I would recormmend using it.

I bought Ppt 2 Flash SDK, but they did not give any support! They just keep promising, but 4 months and nothing!!!
Recently I found out that they stole the SDK from www.ppt2swfsdk.com

Don't be fooled by www.ppt2flashsdk.com as I was before! It's old version of www.ppt2swfsdk.com! Don't buy the version with no support, go to provider, which offers software update!

You could put the presentation in an iframe, but that would only work in internet explorer, the rest of the browsers will donwload it instead of embedding it.
My advice is, if you have office 2010, go to the save as dialog, open the dropdown menu, and select "Windows Media Video(wmv)". Then, upload the video the youtube. Use the old embed way, and you'll get something like this:


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sJC7E06IBXI?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/sJC7E06IBXI?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


at the end of each url, in this case:
https://www.youtube.com/v/sJC7E06IBXI?...,
add a &autoplay=1 so it turns to this:
https://www.youtube.com/v/sJC7E06IBXI?...&autoplay=1,

so the final code will look like this:


&lt;object width="480" height="385"&gt;&lt;param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sJC7E06IBXI?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US<b>&autoplay=1</b>">&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/sJC7E06IBXI?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US<b>&autoplay=1</b>" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;
