Do you want to embed Google slides on a website? Be it for direct linking, social media, or even on a WordPress website, a slide show is quite handy and offers an excellent way to share information.
Read on as we will show you the two different methods on how you can add Google Slides presentations to WordPress easily.
Method 1: How to add Google Slides in WordPress using the oEmbed Plugin
This method is an easy way to go and works favorably for beginners. Here you’ll just need the URL of the presentation that you’ve published on Google Slides.
But, first, make sure you’ve installed and activated the WordPress oEmbed plugin in your site. The plugin works pretty straightforwardly, and there are no settings that you need to configure.
Before you can embed your slide presentation, you’ll need the shareable URL of your Google Slides presentation.
To do that, you can create or upload the presentation in Google Slides that you want to embed and then click on ‘File’ and choose ‘Publish to the web’ in the dropdown.
You should see a pop up that will let you configure slideshow settings such as the delay between slides and autoplay. Click the ‘Publish’ button to make your Slide presentation public, as shown in the image.
After clicking on ‘Publish,’ click ‘OK’ to confirm and continue the process. Now you ought to see a URL that you can use to embed your Google Slides presentation on your WordPress website.
Copy the code and head over to your WordPress Admin dashboard and then to the page or post where you seek to embed your Google Slides presentation. Paste the code to the’ Text’ tab of the WordPress Editor.
It’s important to note that the embed URL should be on its own line. Or else, the plugin may not see the embed link as a valid conversion. Once you click on the Publish button, you should be able to see your Google Slide embedded in your WordPress site.
Method 2: How to add Google Slides embed code in WordPress
Another way to embed google slides in WordPress is to code it manually. That said, with this method, you don’t need to install any plugin, and it is a practical option if you don’t frequently embed Google Slides on your WordPress site.
To get started, you need to open the presentation you want to embed. Then click on ‘File’ and choose ‘Publish to the web’ in the dropdown.
You should see a pop up where you can configure the slideshow settings. Click the ‘Publish’ button to make your Slide presentation public, as shown in the image.
After clicking on ‘Publish,’ click ‘OK’ to confirm and continue the process. Then, click on the ‘Embed’ tab and then copy the code.
Head over to your WordPress Admin dashboard and then to the page or post where you want to add or embed your Google Slides presentation. Paste the embed code to the ‘Text Editor’ tab in the WordPress editor.
Once you click ‘Publish’ or ‘Update,’ you should see your embedded Google slide presentation. Note that you shouldn’t switch to the ‘Visual’ editor after pasting the embed code. Doing so will ruin the embed code, and you’ll then see the codes as plain texts instead of your slide presentation.
