Hi Dyani,

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 stiffy 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.

You can embed your slideshow onto your site using Follow the steps to register and upload your presentation, then click to view the slideshow on SlideShare. On the right of the slideshow player, you'll see a text box called Embed into your blog, with code in it. It should look something like this:
<!-- <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="..." width="425" height="348"> <param name="movie" value="..." /><:/object> -->

Copy the code and then follow these steps on SynthaSite:
1) Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere)
2) 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)
3) When you are done, click "ok" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page

There is 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 SynthaSite, drag and drop an HTML widget onto the page and paste the code into the dialogue box and press OK!

Here's what I did. Convert the .ppt slides to .jpg. Go to and upload (it's free) and a presentation will be created. Copy the html code, drag the html widget to the page and 'VOILA' - you'll have a viewbox (you can choose from the site) that will have a 'Play' button. Then your presentation will play...continuously (hopefully).

You can export a Powerpoint presentation as Flash using Ispring Free, downloadable at Open Office also has a flash export, but not as good as Ispring. Instructions on how to embed flash can be found here:

Ispring also has a type of service at

I posted this question a few minutes ago, but I can't find it, so I'm assuming that I did something wrong an it didn't get posted. I would like to add a powerpoint to my webpage for my students to view. How do I do this?
