We really need better/more options for embedding slideshows and images, please. I have successfully added slide.com slideshows BUT the upload tool is VERY buggy and about every other picture upload boots me off completely shutting down my browser. I have notified them directly but their customer support is very NON responsive. They give me a boilerplate answer that doesn’t at all address the problem I’m bringing to their attention. e.g. “the car you sold me has no wheels” response: “most cars have wheels.” It’s about that ridiculous.
Take your slideshow to an other host. Since WordPress.com allowed VodPod to develop the button for us we can choose any slideshow host we like. Register your blog and a username at Vod:Pod’s site. Install the button and find yourself a new slideshow host.
