Putting a Wowslider Slideshow into my Blog

UPDATE: 10 April 2014: I have published a new post on this topic which walks you through creating a free website, saving your wow slider slideshow on there and then how to view that slideshow in a blogger blog. Please click here to view this post

The post below does not provide a fully working solution. On looking closely at the javascript code I found a line which had this in it, amongst other things:
logo:"engine2/loading.gif"
This indicates that the folder engine2 has to be physically located in the same directory as the file with the code for the slideshow. In my method outlined in the previous post, the folders engine2 and data2 were on the paradise press website, and the code for the slideshow was on my blog. As a result the slideshow, whilst it worked, failed to display the captions (for some reason I can’t divine). So I put the slideshow into a file in the root directory of the paradise press website, called wowdemo.htm. Also I put the folders engine2 and data2 in the same folder. NB Wowslider generates the folders and a file called index2.html. I just copied the contents of index2.html to wowdemo.htm.
So how to get the file on the remote website to display on my blogger blog? All I had to do was to create a new post and edit it in html mode. I inserted an iframe using this code as the only text in the post:
<iframe src="http://www.paradisepress.org.uk/wowdemo.htm" width="399" height="388" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" marginheight="50" marginwidth="50"></iframe>
The page on my blog now looks at the page on the remote site and shows it in the iframe as though it was on my blog. Note the border of 50px I included. The slider format I chose has a neat ‘burst’ effect which extends beyond the edge of the graphic, so I gave it 50px of space to ‘burst’ into. The effect can be seen below. NB chosing a different set of options in wowslider lets you have an infinitely looping slideshow.

NB: the additional text in the post has been edited in after I got the slideshow up and running.

PS: Remember to update the remote file if you make changes to your website!
