I pasted the embed code into my blog but the slides are not showing up. What do I do?

Our iFrame embed code works with all standard blogging platforms (Blogger, Wordpress, Typepad, Tumblr, Posterous, etc.) and sites. In case the embedding does not work (you are seeing only the links, but not the player with the slides), common issues and solutions for them are below:
Your embed does not display due to the type of editor being used in the blog. Most blogging platforms have either a visual editor or a HTML editor. The default is usually a visual editor, though you can typically choose to use a HTML editor in your blog settings. Sometimes when you embed the SlideShare code in the visual editor, it will strip out the relevant code, causing only your link to the file to appear, but not the slides player. Switching to the HTML editor and entering in the embed code again usually fixes this.
Sometimes theentire embed code fails to get copied. Try copy/pasting once again.
There may have been a mistake if you were editing your embed code before placing it on your site. Try copy/pasting once again and be careful while editing the code.
If the presentation that was embedded in your blog is deleted or removed from SlideShare, the embedded content will stop working. Confirm that the content that you are embedding still exists on SlideShare.
If you are using Wordpress and the embed is not working, please read this FAQ for common issues and solutions.
