Can you add a Powerpoint presentation to your site? I'm creating a professional branding web page and want a creative multi-media visual like this to catch someones eye. I've noticed this feature on one of Yola's competitor web services.

Hello Brett

The easiest way to do this is to drag and drop a File Widget onto your page. You will find it in the "Widgets" tab in the Sidebar on the right of your screen (the icon looks like a computer disk). The 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 Sitebuilder, drag-and-drop an HTML Widget from the Sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
7. The 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.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.
