    Hi there,

    is there a way to add an image slider widget?
    I know there's an "image" widget, but I'm looking for a widget (or even a CSS code) to add multiple images in my right column (like a preview!).. Kind of like the Instant Gallery I have on my Gallery page.

    Is this possible?

    The blog I need help with is siciliannabeauty.com.

  2. There isn't a slider widget, but here are a few similar supported options that might work:

    1. Slideshare + text widget

    2. Add an animated GIF with the image widget (must be created at the exact size you want to display)

    3. Create the slideshow as a video and embed the video. Here are some of the video embed options WordPress.com has:

    I'm going to look into SlideShare. I guess I have to create a PowerPoint first, right!?

  4. That is up to SlideShare. I looked up the answer on their site for you, and it looks like there a few different options, including PDFs in addition to PowerPoint files:

  5. Hello! I'm happy to report that a gallery widget has been added to WordPress.com. Look for it in your Appearance > Widgets page!
