The ability to create and edit slideshows in Google Slides provides a convenient way to work on presentations with just a Web browser. Those files can also be shared and collaborated on with other Google users.
But you may find yourself in a situation where you need to put a slideshow on your WordPress site so that others can view it easily. Fortunately this is something that can be accomplished by following just a few short steps.
How to Add a Google Slides File to a Website
The steps in this article assume that you already have a Google Slides file in your Google Drive account. Additionally, these steps will be using a WordPress site that uses the Gutenberg editor and they assume that you are already signed into the site as an administrator or an author.
Step 1: Sign into your Google Drive account and open the Slides file that you wish to embed on your site.
Step 2: Click the File tab at the top-left of the window.
Step 3: Choose the Publish to the web option.
Step 4: Click the Embed tab at the center of the window.
Step 5: Adjust the settings on this menu as needed, then click the Publish button.
Step 6: Press Ctrl + C to copy the selected embed code.
Step 7: Navigate to the WordPress post that you wish to edit, then click the Edit option in the admin bar to edit the existing post, or create a new post if desired.
Step 8: Create a new block in the WordPress editor, then press Ctrl + V to paste the embed code you copied earlier. Note that the Gutenberg editor will be able to identify the code as HTML and adjust the block type accordingly.
Step 9: Click the Publish or Update button at the top-right of the editor to publish your changes.
