    I noticed that the last remnants of the vodpod/Lockerz widget has disappeared. Any news or updates on if a new widget will replace it?

    It really tied the room together.

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is drlorax.wordpress.com.

    Unfortunately, we don’t really have a replacement yet, but we have completely removed the widget since it has been broken on the Vodpod end since June 7th.

    Thanks! Do you think a replacement is just a matter of time? It was a great widget.

    I’m not really sure, we’ll need to find a service that matched Vodpod and is willing to work with us first.

    THIS SUCKS! half my posts have vodpod entries, I had the widget, my blog is disgraced and I had to present it for a job interview, NICE. RATS!!!!

    So it;s gone??

    I’m trying to replace some of the slideshows and videos on the top pages manually. the you tube is working but the picasa slide shows are not working for me…

    This is such a bummer…

    Yes, it’s gone for now. If the Vodpod service ever comes back online, we might bring it back, but there’s no word on if/when that will happen.

    This is not right, We’ve maintained this blog for years here and ool of a sudden, our posts look like caca… so what they say at lockerz that they are working on it is hot air?

    How can they do that to people? I have to go back to hundreds of posts and upload thousands of pictures and make word press slideshows???

    And why the hell you can’t do picasa slideshows again? This is absolutely frustrating.

    I also just used one of your slide shows and I had uploaded the wrong pictures to the post in a second batch, and I had to delete them ONE BY ONE before I could create the slide show with the correct pics, ever heard of bulk actions? Tick, tick, tick, boom delete. One by one REALLY?

    Also a bulk action to take out the “like” button would ROCK, is there one?

    We haven’t heard anything from Lockerz about the Vodpod service being restored. If we had, it would have been re-enabled here already, but it was still offline as of yesterday evening.

    We’re going to re-enable the shortcode to check, but as it is the weekend, I can’t promise when I’ll have anyone available to do that.

    If you’re having issues apart from Vodpod, please open another thread.

    Please do, I was over at lockerz and all of a sudden the videos showed up…

    Is the idea to have us upload all these pictures to your servers, because I already pay picasa and can’t use the slideshows, at least now youtube works but I still have to go in and change each every post? This is tragic…

    They say also something about changing the widget code, argh how frustrating… Most of our blog is centered around slideshows of our work and videos….

    We have never supported Picasa, but we have our own, and we support Slideshare.

    For further non-Vodpod discussion, please start a new thread. Folks are subscribed to this thread via email for Vodpod information, not Slideshow support.

    I really, really need vodpod back, I don’t have weeks to remake all the slideshows of the last years. Please fix it… the videos are back I can see them in lockerz, it says vodpod on them too…

    So you support slideshare now and will it be like vodpod later?

    the lockerz widget worked on my blog just fine (more or less). it’s a pity, that’s been removed.

    Here is the link, I see 80 plus videos so far… do you see them?

    I would have to redo all of those slideshows, pay for the space in your servers plus what we pay at picasa, it’s impossible.

    Plus our blog is ruined right now, I can’t share the links I need to show.

    Why haven’t we been told about this? Who is going to pay for all the hours to repair the hundred posts?

    All those years of posting…

    And I have to find out while I’m filling an extremely complicated job application? This is just insane!

    It;s almost five in the AM where I am, I have been working for twelve hours in my application, and when I go to my blog to pull the links to show my work as asked, THE PICTURES ARE NOT THERE.

    The whole blog is absolutely ruined, I need a valium. I would have never expected something like this from WordPress, it was bad enough that we couldn’t post videos from youtube and vimeo, and slideshows from picasa and that we had to do the extra step via vodpod, but it worked, so be it, but now all the posts are RUINED?

    I have supported wordpress all of this years, because?

    The videos on Lockerz have been working intermittently, but the ability to embed them and use the widget has been down on their end since June 7.

    We have supported the embedding of videos from YouTube and Vimeo since we opened: http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/

    The only thing broken right now is Vodpod, and it’s broken on their end. We have no control over that.

    And then I see the videos and slideshows that shoe decades of our very hard work, back there in that joke*** that is lockerz but you may have no one to re-enable the code… I’m so furious I can barely breathe… I hope you understand. Have a great day. I will try to go to bed, I would love to get some sleep and have this fixed tomorrow so I can finish all of this.
