    Hi all,

    Any help on this would be great. I have gotten a slideshare presentation to successfully embed in my blog (easy), however, I was wondering if it was possible to change the size of it (hard)?

    If you scroll down on this front page of my site, you’ll see the slideshare presentation: http://samjshahportfolio.wordpress.com/

    It just is too big for my tastes, and I’d like to reduce it to be about two-thirds the size.

    I’m guessing that we might not have the ability to do this, but in case there is a way, I’d love to hear it.

    Thanks for any help!
    Best,
    Sam

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

    @sam,

    It might be possible. Worth an experiment anyway.

    I just tried with Slide and Rock You. Both of them give you code to use in the shortcode something like this:
    `[slideshow id=3026418949610788028&w=426&h=320]
    and I altered it like this:
    [slideshow id=3026418949610788028&w=213&h=160]‘

    I have never used Slideshare, but if the code you get is more like YouTube or Vimeo you might try something like this:

    Of course you will be doing all this in HTML, not visual editor.

    1tess, thank you so much. Your addition to the shortcode worked perfectly. I’m super grateful. And happy that it is possible!

    Good to know it worked. I’ve not used Sliceshare so it was a guess.
