How to Add Google Slides Presentations to Your WordPress Website

Adding Google Slides to your WordPress website is a piece of cake. You could use plugins such as Google Doc Embedder and Embed Any Document that enable you to embed and display documents using the Google Docs Viewer. However, it’s just as easy to embed them manually, and you’ll retain control over your presentation. But REMEMBER to share your Google Slides to the PUBLIC.

Adding Google Slides to Your WordPress Website

To kick things off, you’ll need a presentation created on Google Slides. Open it up and navigate to File > Publish to the web. In the Embed tab, select the following:

  1. Slide size. There are three options available by default – small, medium, and large. You’re also given the option to enter custom dimensions.
  2. Auto-advance slides. This enables you to set the slideshow interval duration.

Once you’re done, click the Publish button, then copy the code that appears in the text box:

Next, log into your WordPress admin panel and navigate to Pages > Add New (alternatively, you can navigate to Posts > Add New if you’d like to add your slides to a post). From here, click on the Text tab to open the WordPress editor in HTML mode, then paste the code you copied earlier into the editor:

Once you’re done, click the Preview button in the Publish meta box and take a look. It should look something like this:
