Embed Slideshow and YouTube Video in WordPress

WordPress is a blog publishing system written in PHP. All data is stored in a MySQL database. WordPress is the official successor of b2\cafelog, developed by Michel Valdrighi. The name WordPress was suggested by Christine Selleck, a friend of lead developer Matt Mullenweg. WordPress has powerful features, and one of them is that it supports plugins and widgets. And it makes us possible to embed slideshows created by Photo Flash Maker Pro and our favourite YouTube videos.

Photo Flash Maker Pro can create stunning slideshows with basic and advanced themes. And both the slideshows created with basic and advanced themes can be embedded in WordPress with a plugin named Vodpod. Before you embed the slideshow in WordPress, you need to upload the slideshow to go2ablum. You need to sign up an account of go2ablum at first, it’s free. Please visit http://www.go2album.com. Please click related link below for more information about vodpod and how to use it.
