Easily publish your presentations on slideshare

Project description


collective.slideshare does not add any new contenttypes. It adds new
views for your `Link` and `File` (currently archetypes only) contenttypes.


You have to configure collective.slideshare first to be able to use it.
It requires an API KEY and a SHARED SECRET. Additionally you may provide
a username and password. If you do not provide usermane and password
you will be prompted for those every time you upload a file to slideshare.
You can obtain an API KEY at

You can specify a policy for this behaviour:

* Always use the credentials provided, never prompt user for input
* Always ask user for his credentials
* Allow user to supply his credentials, if none are provided use the system credentials

Files can be automatically uploaded to SlideShare_ when you 'publish'
them. For this to work a workflow must be activated for Files and you
have to provide credentials and the policy must not require the user
to supply his own credentials.


When you add a link to a SlideShare_ presentation the product retrieves the
slideshare_id from SlideShare_ and embeds the presentation in your page.
Do NOT use the link given in the slideshare `<> Embed` option!
You can (de)activate the 'SlideShare View' at any time.


When you upload a Presentation you can change the view to 'SlideShare View'.
You will then be asked to provide your credentials to add this file to
SlideShare_ and the presentation will be embedded in the page. At
First you may see a 'This document has either been removed or made private by
its owner' message. This is to be expected as SlideShare_ needs a little
time to convert the presentation. Refresh the page after a little while.

Slideshow was removed from SlideShare_

When a presentation is removed from SlideShare_ you can simply change the
view back to the default view. However this does not remove the id from
the annotation. To remove the annotation you have to call
`Remove Slideshare Annotation` in the `Actions` menu
or manually append `@@slideshare_removeid.html` to your objects url.

This does *NOT* delete the presentation from SlideShare.
It is not recommended to remove the id if you do not delete the
presentation from SlideShare, because if you change the view back to
`SlideShare View` it will result in another upload of the presentation.
