Slide shows

The Steps

There are various ways you can do this.
The recommended basic way to set up a slideshow is as follows.

  1. Prepare the slides using PowerPoint or an alternative. Allow some space around the edges in case you want to trim the images. The default proportions of a slide are 3:2 e.g 600px x 400px or (better) 1200px x 800px. You can use a custom size on PowerPoint to match this if you wish.
  2. Save each slide as an image (png is preferred) and load them as media files in WordPress. Using Save as in PowerPoint is probably the simplest way.
  3. Create one page for each slide in the sequence. It may help to use a numerical slide name suffix for identification and sequencing. Make sure you select the custom template called “Slide page”. It may help to make each slide page a child of the first slide.
  4. On each page add one slide as the Featured Image.
  5. Go back through the slides and set the page sequencing (see separate document).
  6. Add the first slide in the sequence to the menu.
