In a support article http://en.support.wordpress.com/slideshows/ it is mentioned that you can use Slide, Rockyou & Slide Share as alternatives to the WordPress slideshow feature. I have been trying to get all of these to create slideshows but am having problems as follows;
RockYou - I load the images, go to Save and RockYou gives a message saying slideshow is unavailable. Looking on the t'internet it looks like RockYou might not be allowing the creation of slideshows anymore
Slide - Similar problem, I load the images go to Save and Slide gives a message saying it is Saving and then just appears to hang, finally crashing IE
Slideshare is slightly different and may well work. You don't load images, it's more about PowerPoint or documents.
So my questions are;
Does WordPress still recommend the above options for Slideshows?
Are there any alternatives to the three mentioend above?
The blog I need help with is mikehardisty.wordpress.com.
