N.B.: The original extension (by Sergey Chernyshev) was replaced with SlideShare Widget which is using Widgets extension to render the player. But I modified the original code because the Widget doesn't work on my MediaWiki 1.18+.



@slideshare_document_id   - slideshare document id (id parameter in the URL)
@width                    - (optional) width parameter, default is 425 pixels
@height                   - (optional) height parameter, default is 348 pixels

Where's the ID of the slide?[edit]

Click on 'Embed' in the top of the slide which you want to insert in your webpage, and then click on 'Copy'. You'll have this (is an example):

<div style="width:425px" id="__ss_306252"> <strong style="display:block;margin:12px 0 4px">
<a href="http://www.slideshare.net/SergeyChernyshev/semantic-media-wiki-semantic-forms" title="Semantic Media Wiki & Semantic Forms"
target="_blank">Semantic Media Wiki & Semantic Forms</a></strong> <iframe src="http://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/306252"
width="425" height="355" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no"></iframe> <div style="padding:5px 0 12px"> 
View more <a href="http://www.slideshare.net/" target="_blank">presentations</a> from <a href="http://www.slideshare.net/SergeyChernyshev"
target="_blank">Sergey Chernyshev</a> </div> </div>

Copy the number (*only* the number) near the string "id="__ss_" and paste it replacing the string "slideshare_document_id". It's quick and simple, isn't it? :)


Add the following line at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php

require_once( "$IP/extensions/SlideShare.php" );

Nice note[edit]

It's my first extension! ;)
