Adds a shortcode for embedding Google Street View content into your WordPress Site. Embed directly, or embed a thumbnail that opens a tour as an overlay.
In any editor within WordPress, you’ll see the lovely pegman next to insert image. Click this little guy to open a simple interface to find your tour, set the start position and insert your tour into your site!
- Easily locate your tour and set a start position
- Adds Click to Play functionality to Google Street View
- Multi-language support.
- Admin Interface for building galleries (Pro)
- Q: Does it create galleries?
Not yet! You can only insert one tour at a time with this (so far). You will need to use a page builder (I like Elementor), or a column shortcode to pull this off.
- Q: What’s the point?
Google Street View allows embedding in an IFRAME, but immediately loads tours. this slows page load down and is tedious to setup. This plugin is not only FASTER and EASIER to use, but it adds the click-to-start functionality that is sorely missing from GSV.
- Q: Will you be adding features like overlays and internal tour enhancements?
A: Probably not. This would best be addressed by visiting a robust platform like GoThru, Walkinto or PanoSkin.
- Q: I love the lightbox overlay thing.
A: Thanks, it’s Magnific Popup by Dmitry Semenov. Go check out his site. He makes some awesome stuff!
