Did somebody say Slide Show Pro has a Coppermine Plugin?!

I love Slide Show Pro I have been taking a little slack here at DTLT (which, by the way, will be hosting none other than Jon Udell at this year’s Faculty Academy on May 17th – wow!!) for pointing out the delicate subtleties of a slide show extension for flash called Slide Show Pro. So much so, that my new initials have been designated S.S.P. Often times, folks try and focus on what Slide Show Pro -that beautiful image presentation panacea- cannot do. Like, for a random example, interface and work with a photo gallery such as coppermine (which, happens to be where the theater and historic preservation classes we are working with here in DTLT are storing their digital images). Well, my jaded PowerPoint lovers, Web XS 24(like me) has recognized (in all our infinite wisdom) the shifting paradigms of web image communication as we know them, and coded accordingly.

In sum, comments on blogs can be a space for conversation, dialogue, and a general community of sharing and learning. But they can also be a place to pay homage to your Slide Show Pro master! So, I will be expecting at least two, if not three, comments on this blog very soon – if dignity is still a value in this forsaken land of scrap bookers!!

    Oh Dr S.S.P. We are not worthy! And seriously this is a really good find. Thank you for sharing with the world your OCD as evidenced by your obsession with Slide Show Pro. And by the way we gave you “flack”. We would never give you “slack”.

    Damn, that’s not much of an homage – correcting my english and everything- in the words of thee late, great Rodney Dangerfeild, “No Respect!”

    Speaking of no respect, I just tried twice to leave a comment. A pointed, witty, encouraging comment. No joy!

    This sounds great. Maybe someone can build us a working example? I wonder who? 🙂 By the way Jim, what is your SSP commission? 🙂

    Ok, Gardner – I re-installed WordPress, and my comments should be hunky dory – unless, of course, the problem is with the beta version og the K2 theme I am currently using. So, here goes my first test of the new version …

  6. jimgroom says:

    Its official, the problems with erratic comments appearing after you post a comment are being cause by the K2 beta theme. Looks like I have to do some more digging and damage control, but until then – don’t be afraid to comment – everything is UNDER CONTROL!

    Yes, I can see that signpost up ahead…. I know exactly where I am.
