Deploying to a Blog or CMS

In some cases you may want to deploy a slideshow to a webpage overwhich you don't have direct control, such as a blog or a CMS.  In these cases, you don't have the luxury of directly opening the page in Dreamweaver and inserting a slideshow.    The solution to these situations is to create a separate page to display the slideshow, then display this page in your main page using an inline frame (<iframe>).    

To do this, first create an HTML page in Dreamweaver (e.g. slideshow_holder.html) which is specifically designed to hold the slideshow.    In the <head> of the holder page add the following code:

<style type="text/css">
body, html { margin: 0; padding: 0; }

Follow the standard instructions for inserting a slideshow into this page.    Deploy it as detailed in that section of the manual, uploading all of the necessary files along with the holder page.    After uploading the page, determine the full path to the slideshow page -- e.g. http://www.example.org/slideshows/slideshow_holder.html.

Next, in your other page (e.g. the blog or CMS), add the following code to display the slideshow:

<iframe scrolling="no" frameborder="0" width="500" height="300" src="http://www.example.org/slideshows/slideshow_holder.html"></iframe>

You must replace the bolded src value with the slideshow holder page URL you determined earlier.    The bolded width and height values must be replaced with the slideshow's actual dimensions.
