    On wp.com blogers can use the slidehare plugin:

    The slideshare web site has a special code for wp.com users. Has anyone the plugin that can use this code?

    There are other plugin that does not use this code.

    Heya!

    The wordpress folk wrote the plugin. I'm sure they're generous with that kind of thing. Wordpress is their baby!

    If not, it's super-simple for someone else to write. Basically a regular expression that turns the short code into an embed code.

    A couple of plugins have already been written for doing slideshare embeds via url. They use screen-scraping, so I can't testify to whether they still work. But here they are:

    Helps?

    Jon,

    I was hoping that SlideShare would want to give this kind of plugin since its your interest :)

    I will try to find someone with better programming skills than me for the job.

    I have taken the plugin by Koen Verhaeghe and made it work with the shortcode used by wp.com.

    The plugin works out of the plugins-mu directory.
