Embeding a presentation from amazon S3 to a wordpress post

Feb 07, 2011

Hi Everyone,

Hope you had a good weekend. Could you please explain to me how to embed an articulate presentation which i am hosting on amazon s3 into a wordpress post? Nothing I'm doing seems to be working and i am slowly going out of my mind .

Thanks in advance

Hi Yvonne,

Great question and it's very easy Wordpress (self-hosted) has a great plug-in that creates a sort of iFrame in your post. This enables you to point to the player.html file and load it in blog posts. It works great!

Here's a screencast on the process: https://player.vimeo.com/video/148897767

I think Tom has a post coming out on this but that screencast will help.

Hehe, you're very welcome.

I tested it over the weekend because another user asked about it. 

On a side note, if you want to add Engage or Quizmaker interactions to your WordPress blog, check out this handy plugin: WP-Swf object https://player.vimeo.com/video/204933957 

Good luck and let us know if you have any questions!

My next inquiry is how to do it with a jQuery pop-up.  But, I'll figure that out soon enough.  If I get it first, I'll share

Please do Robert. It seems to work great with Quizmaker when you link to the .swf file. But linking to .html probably needs some custom modifications to get it to work. Cool idea so please share your results when you try it.

Hi Russ  -

Thanks for the link. So, the easiest thing to begin with is updating your publish options so the player resizes to the browser size. This would enable it to scale down a bit for your app.

Ideally, I'd say the best thing to do is keep the published output at the optimal (default) size and make your app holder (div?) a little larger - just so the content is always presented at the size it was originally developed.

Here's where you can learn more about the publish options for player size: http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/changing-the-browser-settings-and-player-size.aspx

Regarding Amazon S3 and masking redirects, I don't know about that. I"ll nudge some of our more dev-savvy users to see if they have any tips.

Hi David,

Thanks for your reply. I'm playing about with the player options and will see what result I get.

I'm using OptimizePress as the theme for my site, and the size is [fixed at] 977 pixels; I have no idea how to change the div attribute you mentioned.

My published output is 980 x 640 so I'm slowly reducing the size to see what fits perfectly. I'll let you know how I get on.

NOTE: David, this wasn't seem to helping a great deal, so I've stopped resizing my design. I have over 250 slides and I'm guessing that unless they resize automatically and all turn out 100%, potentially it's a lot of reworking of images, etc. I guess modifying this div tab is the way to go, even if it means changing themes.

If you could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated (there are an awful lot of div tags out there).
