Blog, Forum, and CMS

My slideshows can be used in Blog, Forum, and CMS, provided that:

  1. the specific Blog/Forum/CMS that you are using do not explicitly prevent you to post/publish custom Flash files;
  2. you are able toadd a flash file with your Blog/Forum/CMS.

Please notice that for certain platforms (like WordPress, Joomla, etc.) templates/plugins/modules for some of my slideshows have been developed by other people. Please take a look at the appropriate list:

If there is no template/plugin/module for your platform then you have to read the following.

There are two main cases depending on whether your Blog/Forum/CMS allow you to upload any file format (like swf, xml, jpg, png) or not.

If you can upload any file format

Good! I managed to make the Carousel work on a Splinder blog: ffss.splinder.com (tutorial on the blog). Splinder is an Italian blog service, but the blog is in English. The basic idea should work on any platform that allows you to publish Flash files.

Another interesting example, with a detailed tutorial, is given on flshow.jimdo.com.

The tutorial on the blog is for the Carousel, but the very same technique apply to all my slideshows.

If you cannot upload any file format

There is no way to let one of my slideshows work without publish an xml file, so you need a web space!

Many Internet Service Provider and other sites give you web space for free (eventually adding advertising on html pages, but it doesn't matter).

I managed to make the Carousel work on a Blogger blog: flcarousel.blogspot.com (tutorial on the blog). The basic idea should work on any platform that allows you to publish Flash files.

In a few words you must: create a folder in you space; put Carousel.swf, default.xml, and all images in that folder (refer to Carousel 101 for configuration info); use exclusively absolute paths for image files and links; include the Carousel.swf using it's absolute url in your Blog/Forum/CMS.

This is for the Carousel, but the very same technique apply to all my slideshows.
