Embed Virtual Tours On Your Website Without Hassle

Once you create a tour, it’s really easy to embed it on your website.

Simply use the WPVR Gutenberg block, WP VR Elementor Widget, WP VR Oxygen Element, or Shortcodes to embed the tour on any page or post on your website.

Gutenberg Block Support

On the Gutenberg block editor, it has the WP VR block under the common blocks. It is used to embed the virtual tour. Provide the tour ID and assign your desired width and height, and the tour will be embedded.

Elementor Widget Support

The Elementor page builder will have a WP VR widget under the general widgets. Drag and drop the widget onto the page. Provide the tour ID and set your required width and height to get a live preview.

Oxygen Element Support

The Oxygen builder will have a WP VR element Choose your tour from the list, set your desired Width and height, and Apply Params to embed the tour.

Shortcode Support

On Classic Editor, you can easily embed virtual tours using Shortcodes. Set your tour ID, width, height, and your tour will be embedded.

Disable WordPress Large Image Handler To Upload High-Quality Images

WordPress has a default large image handler that handles images with a size of more than 2560 by 1280 pixels and creates optimized versions of them.

So if you upload a very high-quality image, it will be converted to a lower resolution image.

WP VR allows you to disable this large image handler so you can create virtual tours with extremely high-resolution images.

Control Editors and Authors from Accessing Tours

Control the Editors and Authors of your site from accessing the virtual tours on your site.

FAQ

1. Why Do I Need WP VR?

You can easily create a Virtual Tour of your place using WP VR to build a virtual presence of your business.

Simply provide a 360 degree panoramic photo and this plugin will create a virtual tour that your visitors can navigate easily.

Allow your prospects to have a realistic tour of your facility before they decide to purchase your service and increase your conversion rate.

2. How to Install and Activate WP VR?

Once you have downloaded the file, go to your dashboard. Under Plugins, select Add New, and upload the file. Then Install and activate the plugin.

Once activated, on the left side under your dashboard, you will find the option WP VR at the bottom.

3. What Kind of Images Should I Use To Create A Virtual Tour?

To make a perfect equirectangular image, you need to use a 360-degree panoramic photo of the area you want to preview.

However, you can also capture panorama images with your smartphone and use them to create a partial panorama tour.

5. Can I Customize The Hotspot Icons?

Yes. You can create a custom class on your theme, stating whatever style you want. Then you can input the class name on the Hotspot Custom Class section in a hotspot, and the content displayed will be customized according to the style you set.

6. Can I Create A 360 Degree Video Tour With WP VR?

Yes, with WP VR, you can create a 360 Degree video tour.

You can either upload the video to create a tour or set a link to a Youtube/Vimeo 360 degree video.

7. How To Embed A Virtual Tour Using Gutenberg Block Editor?

Under common blocks, you will find a block called WP VR. Select the block and on the dynamic toolbar on the right, you will get the options to add ID, Height, and Width.

Collect the ID from the virtual tour you created. Assign height and width as you desire.

8. The Tour Is Not Loading On The Webpage.

Go to your WordPress Dashboard > WPVR > Get Started > Settings.

Check the Enable Script Control option status.

If the Enable Script Control option is turned On, turn it off and reload the tour page.

If you wish to use this feature, you have to set the URLs of all the pages on your site with a virtual tour in the List of Allowed Pages To Load WPVR Scripts field.

9. What To Do If I Get “THE FILE (image link) COULD NOT BE ACCESSED” Error?

Sometimes when you add a tour on your site, you might face this issue that rather than loading the tour it will give the error “THE FILE (…) COULD NOT BE ACCESSED.”

This error shows up when you are running a website under “HTTPS” (secured with SSL certificate) whereas your image link is under “HTTP” (unsecured).

To solve this issue, go to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General. Here make sure you have “https” added to both “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)”. That’s it. Your virtual tour will load with no issues.

10. Can I make The Virtual Tour Full-width?

Yes, you can publish the tours as full-width of your page/post.

For Gutenberg, Elementor, and Oxygen builder, set fullwidth on the Width field. For shortcodes, set width = “fullwidth”.

11. What If I Use An Optimization or Caching Plugin?

If you use any Optimization or Caching plugins, then you need to exclude WP VR from its optimization function.

Simply add “/plugins/wpvr” to the exclusion field (or use the location where you store plugins).

Reviews

November 6, 2020
The plugin looks promising and probably works well, if you spend a lot of time learning to use it! But unfortunately I only have to give it a star, as you pay as much as $ 59.99 / Year and lose the pro version if you do not pay an additional $ 59.99 each year. When you consider that most plugin sellers only end up with support and updates then this is a bad and expensive deal. There are also significantly better and cheaper solutions out there that do not suck out an annual fee to keep something you have paid for!
