    Where am I supposed to specify insert slideshow instead of gallery with the new up-loader?

    The blog I need help with is efg3.com.

    Sorry for the trouble!

    We’re working to bring the slideshow button back.

    For now, you can insert a slideshow with the [slideshow] shortcode, provided that the images have already been uploaded through the post or page.

    1. Open the post or page for editing.
    – 1b. Upload images via the post or page if they have not been uploaded yet.
    2. Place the cursor where the slideshow will be.
    3. Type [slideshow]
    4. Click Update to publish the changes.

    I must be missing something important here. When I’m in the upload dialog the only choices available prior to returning to the insertion point and the [slideshow] code, placed either before or after that point are:
    1 Create a new gallery
    2 Insert into post (which just inserts every image selected individually, directly into the post)
    3 Click here to go to the advanced image editor and a few other irrelevant choices. Update isn’t one of them. That is not available until I’ve returned to the post and the photos I’ve selected in the upload dialog are nowhere to be seen…

    You only need to upload photos via the post if you haven’t already.

    If you already have, proceed to from step 1 to step 2 above, skip step 1b.

    If you have not uploaded photos yet, you need to do step 1b. When you click the “Add Media” button, you’ll see a large drag-and-drop upload area.
