Looking to include a video in your blog post? Grab the ID for the video from the embed code on youtube's
website, and use the youtube shortcode above. Width and height are optional, but recommended so we get the
proportions correct for your video.
Are you looking to include a slideshow (PowerPoint or otherwise) in a blog post?
Once your slideshow is on slideshare,
you can easily include it in your blog using our special shortcode. Just go to your slideshare
page and find the embed code. In the embed code, you should see a reference along the lines of
id="__s_9723178". This contains the ID for your slideshow which you'll need for
your shortcode. Just grab the numbers from that code, drop them in place of the xxxxxxx,
and like magic, your slideshare will be embedded in your post.
For TED videos, when viewing the video on their site, click the "Share" button below the video and
copy/paste the WordPress.com shortcode they provide. Our system will take care of the rest. The
shortcode they provide will look like this:
[ted id=947], and you can add width/height settings if desired.
