Technical Issues with SlideShare

Some of the SlideShare presentations have been displaying poorly recently, and many of the links have stopped working from within the presentations. This seems to affect the presentations which are more than a couple of years old. I have re-uploaded a couple, which might help. Hopefully SlideShare will fix their issues soon, as with over 90 presentations, 40 documents and lots of links and embeds it is too big a job to start from the beginning.

EDIT – I’ve contacted SlideShare and they say they aware of the problem and are acting to fix it. 

Solutions for now:

  • Use the images in the presentations as keyword hints for searches
  • Follow links on the subject content pages here
  • Download the presentation and follow the links (but stick to the acceptable use guidelines and do not re-host on other internet servers).

If anyone knows of other good presentation servers, please let me know. SlideShare works well with WordPress – Prezi, Slidrocket and others cannot be embedded here, due to the WordPress security settings regarding Flash.
