Create Presentations Easily on WordPress.com with Shortcodes

Christmas has came early for me.

The WordPress.com Blog

On WordPress.com, you can use a number of shortcodes to embed features and create objects with little effort, and make your site look just the way you want. We’re excited to announce new shortcodes you can use to whip up a slideshow presentation — and display it on your WordPress.com site.

A sampling of features

  • Selecting different slide transitions (up, down, left, right)
  • Rotating and scaling slides
  • Choosing colors or images for backgrounds (HTML color, image URL)
  • Setting transition durations and sizes

You can see these features in action, along with shortcode instructions to get you started, in the sample presentation below. Don’t forget to view it in full-screen — just click the four-arrow icon on the bottom right corner.

We’re excited that you can use these shortcodes to create presentations, from simple slideshows to sleek, professional presentations. For more detailed steps, visit the presentations shortcode support page.
