SlideShare Slideshows

SlideShare is a third-party service used to upload and share publicly or privately PowerPoint presentations, Word documents and Adobe PDF Portfolios.

The instructions from this guide are referring to the Classic Editor. If you are using the Block Editor, please use the Slideshare block. See how to insert a block here.

Notably, if you want to customize your Slideshare embed even in the Block Editor, please use the Shortcode block to insert the shortcode. See the Customizing section below for more on how to customize the SlideShare embed.
