SmugMug Announces that Slideshows are now available using oEmbed!

I just came across a post in the Smugmug Dgrin Forums about SmugMug slideshows available through oEmbed!

G’day Troup,
We recently added a slideshow representation for a gallery link, so if you provide a gallery url (minus the photo portion) […]
The oEmbed call will return a flash slideshow.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
David


This is wonderful if it actually works! So here’s our first shot at it. In order to display a slideshow, you must get the gallery link without the photo info at the end.

Example:

I highlight, then copy and paste the link from my browser while viewing a gallery.
The photo section of the url (#1237402990_tgQTP) is automatically part of the URL I copied, so I must cut it out.

Make sure to put your new link on its own line in the HTML Editor.
You will then have a wonderful SmugMug Slideshow for your WordPress.com Blog!


Due to the WordPress.com theme I am using, the slideshow is cut in half when using the “Standard” post format.
So I included the slideshow in the next post, SmugMug Slideshow using oEmbed, using the “Video” post format.
