Is making a page or series of pages that can be presented like a powerpoint supported by GeneratePress?
If not, what tools do people recommend?GeneratePress 2.1.2GP Premium 1.6.2May 22, 2018 at 12:34 pm #582023LeoStaffCustomer SupportMay 22, 2018 at 12:45 pm #582030DavidStaffCustomer Support
Powerpoint presentation plugins seemed to have gone by the by, there is slideshare but i believe that is a remote service. The only one left in the WP Repo that is almost up to date is this and it does support remote control:
Alternatively you can embed a powerpoint presentation in your site like so (have a cup of tea on the ready):
Or you could use GP Sections set to full height for each slide. And make some yourself.May 22, 2018 at 12:58 pm #582038Jud
Thanks for your answers, guys.
I teach a number of classes (Arduino, Kanji, Laser Cutter) at my hackerspace (FreesideAtlanta.org) and could use Google Chrome to cast my desktop to a projector.
I have bought a better, used laptop, but its particular graphics “card” (actually part of the motherboard) does not play nice with Chrome, so only one tab of Chrome (rather than the entire desktop) can be cast.
So, I’d like to use GP or some other extension of WP to store presentations as web pages.May 22, 2018 at 1:06 pm #582043DavidStaffCustomer SupportOctober 19, 2020 at 11:45 am #1496043Aaron
I have the embed code for the simple PowerPoint slides.
I then added a new page to my site.
I selected the HTML block and pasted the embed code there.
when I click publish, I get the following response:
“Updating failed. The response is not a valid JSON response.”
I’m not sure what my next move should be to fix this issue. Can anyone help out?October 19, 2020 at 12:21 pm #1496086LeoStaffCustomer SupportOctober 19, 2020 at 5:45 pm #1496338Aaron
Yes. Without the HTML block, the page saves ok. With the PowerPoint embed script in the HTML block, I get the JSON error, whatever that is.
Therefore, you said I should check with the plugin support. I didn’t install a plugin as the WordPress instructions on the link David posted above and the instructions from MS Office do not reference any plugin that needs to be used. Is that where I’m going wrong?
I get the feeling something (WordPress or GeneratePress) maight not support iFrames… maybe?October 19, 2020 at 5:57 pm #1496342Aaron
Some progress made. By editing the page in “Code Editor” mode I pasted the embed code from PowerPoint then switched back to visual editor. I am now able to see the PowerPoint presentation, and flip through the slides, while the page is in Edit mode (that didn’t happen if I just used an Embed HTML block).
So everything looks perfect in page edit mode, but when I hit publish, I still get that JSON error and nothing gets published.October 20, 2020 at 2:11 am #1496615DavidStaffCustomer SupportOctober 20, 2020 at 6:03 am #1496890Aaron
That did it! Thanks.October 20, 2020 at 7:16 am #1496996DavidStaffCustomer SupportNovember 5, 2020 at 5:30 pm #1519862Aaron
I am getting the same JSON error: “Updating failed. The response is not a valid JSON response” now because of my podcast embed code. This embed code has always worked on my site. Why all of a sudden is it not working now? I didn’t change anything.
Here is the embed code I am using in a Shortcode block:
