In this article we are going to cover three different ways to share your content while hiding the Slidebean app URL on the visitor's browser window, starting with the easiest one.
- Using a URL Shortener
- Embedding a presentation on a page in your website
- Masking the URL on your domain settings
1- Using a URL Shortener
Platforms like bit.ly allow you to compress a URL into a smaller link, that might work best when adding it to an email thread.
- Go to bitly.com
- Paste the URL on the field.
3. Click Shorten.
4. The newly generated link should look like this: https://bit.ly/2OWJLls
2- Embedding a presentation on a page in your website
All Slidebean presentations may be embedded on an HTML page using the Embed code. You can find that code under the Sharing Menu.
Normally, the code looks like this,
<div style="position:relative;width:100%;height:50px;padding-bottom:62.5%;"><iframe style="position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;" src="https://embed.slidebean.com/PzdNTBErBj" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div>
This code places the presentation in the middle of the page, using the full width of the container. It also removes all styling from the normal present page, so the Slidebean logo, author, number of views and related presentations will not show up.
You may host this page on your website or CMS (content management system) and point people there instead of the Slidebean site.
3- Masking a Domain or Subdomain
Most domain registrars offer the option of routing your domain or subdomain to another page, and masking it.
You may route your domain to the main presentation sharing page, which looks like this.
Alternatively, you can replace the subdomain from app. to embed. to enable an embed version of the presentation, without any branded styling.
