Rock you!

This is a little tool for creating slideshows which you can embed in a web page or blog. Derek blogged about this awhile ago and I have only just got back to looking at it. One of the cool things about this is the ability to either upload your photos directly or to insert a url to exisitng photos on the web. The pictures here are my Father-in-laws paintings. These were set up in google pages and the url for each painting inserted into the "Rock You" site. For NZ schools using watchdog you might be blocked from the main rockyou site but this link should get you in.

Setup is very fast and you have the ability to save a show and come back later to edit it if you want. Posting the show onto your page is just a matter of copying the code and pasting it. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow although I did discover when posting to this blog that I got an error message

Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is not closed: followed by some HTML which if I post it here it doesn't display.

Not sure what this means but if I tick the box beside "Stop showing HTML errors for this post" it publishes successfully.

Also the default code includes three default links. Watchdog blocked these. If you can edit a bit of HTML it is fairly simple to just delete those before you post. This is what I have done on this page.
