Hello and thank you for the code! How do you create vertical slides?

@javimarlop Pandoc creates vertical slides for all headings greater than h1. Try this:

# Slide Title <!-- common for the following three subslides -->

## First vertical-subslide

-   point one
-   point two
-   point three

## Second vertical-subslide

-   point a
-   point b
-   point c

## First vertical-subslide

-   point foo
-   point bar
-   point baz

Is there a way to specify per-slide background images, a la

<section data-background="http://example.com/image.png">
<h2>This slide will have a full-size background image.</h2>
</section>

How can I get out of vertical slides after I use it. Once I apply vertical slides with #, all the following slides with ## will become vertical subslides. How can I get back to horizontal ?

@dalang, you need to put ------- between horizontal slides.

An example (copying from @Bengt):

# Slide Title <!-- common for the following three subslides -->

## First vertical-subslide

-   point one
-   point two
-   point three

## Second vertical-subslide

-   point a
-   point b
-   point c

## First vertical-subslide

-   point foo
-   point bar
-   point baz
----------
## Horizontals again!

Just a quick comment, I've had issues printing slides created with this template into a pdf. Chrome might do it properly, but wkhtmltopdf has problems. I've been able to solve it by replacing the printing script. So, where it says:

<script>
  document.write( '<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/print/' +
    ( window.location.search.match( /print-pdf/gi ) ? 'pdf' : 'paper' ) + 
    '.css" type="text/css" media="print">' );
</script>

Replace it with:

        <script>
            var link = document.createElement( 'link' );
            link.rel = 'stylesheet';
            link.type = 'text/css';
            link.href = window.location.search.match( /print-pdf/gi ) ? 'css/print/pdf.css' : 'css/print/paper.css';
            document.getElementsByTagName( 'head' )[0].appendChild( link );
        </script>

Taken from the current master version of reveal.js. This solves it for me.

A quick note: this template is broken in a really minuscule way for current release (3.2.0) of reveal.js. It produces a call to a minified version of the reveal css and js files, but for whatever reason, the downloadable zip of the current reveal release just has human-readable versions, no minified available.

Quick fix: line 19 of the template should read <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reveal.css"> and line 81 should read <script src="js/reveal.js"></script>

Of course, this can also just be solved in one's own installation of reveal just by making a minified version (or just changing the filenames)...

(Edit: I've made a fork to fix this glitch, also with a small python script to make the commandline a little simpler to handle and provide sensible defaults. https://gist.github.com/paultopia/0c57899407aed81f6932)
