Pilcrow problem with slideshow

  1. I have moved my blog from here:

    but sadly the slideshows have disappeared. I reloaded a gallery to try and reinstall a slideshow on one of the posts but the option is no longer there in the insert media tool. Only insert gallery is now possible.

    I use slideshare on some posts where I want more than one slideshow but on posts where I only want one slideshow I would really like to use the pilcrow one--- eg as on the page

    Can you please advise me before I go ahead and make all my slideshows through slideshare.

    will really appreciate your advice

    The blog I need help with is

    We're sorry for the trouble. The type of slideshows you're referring to are only available on, which is why you no longer see that option on your self-hosted WordPress site.

    You may be able to find a plugin to do what you're looking for in the plugins directory. I would check there before converting all your slideshows to SlideShare... it might save you some time.

    Since you're using a self-hosted version of WordPress, you can post any future issues to the support forums. Staff often respond to questions about Automattic themes there, too.

    I hope this helps!

  3. Thanks so much. I have posted this on the .org site as I went ahead and loaded the slideshow plug-in, but it is really clumsy to use and in the end would be quicker and easier to just use the slideshare website - which is such a pity as the Pilcrow slideshow is really impressive.
    Let's hope someone has some advice for me.

  4. Hello,
    I have a "" blog and the same problem that Kazjaz.

  5. Hi @ducoteduteich!

    Hmm, I'm seeing slideshows appear at that URL. Are you still having this problem? If so, could you start a new thread for the issue and describe in more detail what's going on? Thanks!

  6. Thanks,
    more details on the forum :
    I hope there will be a solution.

  7. thanks - but I dont speak Spanish, sadly....... :-(
    shall I go back to
    I used slideshare now but the slides are small and not centered.

  8. Hi kazjaz,

    If you haven't seen it already, here is a link to the SlideShare documentation. I would read through that to see if they have any tips for embedding, or if they recommend any plugins you can install to make embedding easier. You could also try contacting their support for guidance.

    There's also the WordPress plugin directory that @sixhours pointed out earlier that might be worth searching through if you haven't already.
