CAN ANYONE HELP ME POST A SLIDESHOW ON MY BLOG?   27 comments

I know other people do it, but I can’t find any directions for doing it myself. Can some brilliant person out there tell me how to do that on WordPress?

Thanks

  1. I think you can do it after uploading the pics in the media section, which you find on your dashboard. I have created a page “Gallery” on my blog and if I go in there and edit it I get the option for a slideshow. Does that help or not really?

    • I think I’ve done that gallery thing, but couldn’t find the slideshow option. I’ll try again tomorrow, though, and thanks for the help. I’ll let you know if it works.

      • Ok. If you go to your gallery on the page you have it on and click on “edit” it should lead you to the “Edit Page”. There you have the window with the pics in it. Click on the pics and then you should get a frame around them with that pen sign and the X. Click on the pen and it leads you to “Edit Gallery” and on the side you should see “Gallery Settings”. In the Gallery Settings you have the option “Types” and there you should be able to find “Slideshow”. I hope this helps you…

      • I’m working on it. I guess the first step is to put the photos into the gallery. I can’t just transport a whole slideshow. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks.

      • Thank you so much for your help. I had to learn first to construct a gallery. I was wrong about already having one. Anyway, I am really grateful for the time you gave me. And I’m happy to say I finally got it done. — another skill under my belt — or should I say, “on my blog.”

  2. Mona, NOT the faintest clue how to do the photos! I hope you get help with this. Stay warm. We arrived tonight in St. Augustine.

    • ooh, I loved our week in St. Augustine. Contrary to florida propaganda it was cold. One restaurant had a sign saying “warm inside” where one would have expected to see “air conditioning” advertised. but it was a good week nonetheless.

  3. I have no idea, besides the thing I read – you need to have a plugin installed on your browser 😦

  4. That would not be me I am afraid.  See you Monday.  Love, Dottie

  5. Sorry, don’t have the foggiest idea. In fact when it comes to anything to do with computers I usually have to enlist my children’s help!

  6. Mona, this is what the WordPress Happiness engineers are all about. Just ask them for help. Sometimes they send a video-link. But i think Ammomasview has got it 🙂

  7. I am not sure if the other comments helped. If not check out http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/ It gives a step by step approach.

  8. One thing about which you can be absolutely certain – I have no idea!
