Panorama-type posts are just like regular posts but they contain additional fields that allow you to enter your panorama info.
- You can add a single panorama to each panorama type post
- You can use the provided panorama shortcode to insert multiple panoramas in a regular post thus creating virtual tours. In this case, if you don’t want the panorama to also appear as a standalone post, you can mark the entry Private. You can also insert the panorama shortcode in pages, content blocks, widgets, etc.
From the WordPress admin area go to Panoramas > Add New. You will be presented with following screen.
- Type the entry title
- Select the type of panorama
- Enter the panorama URL. For Flash/HTML5 panoramas, this is the location where you have uploaded your panorama files. For Google panoramas, simply paste the Streetview, Business Views ot Photo Sphere panorama URL. You can find instructional videos on how to add different panoramas types under Adding Panoramas.
- Geotag the entry if you wish to. If you don’t, no marker will appear on the map for this entry.
- Pay particular attention to the Link this map marker to option. If you intend to publish this entry as a single panorama, you can link the map marker to This Panorama. If this panorama will be part of a virtual tour along with other panoramas, you can link the map marker to the post containing the virtual tour.
- Select or upload a Featured Image.
- Type your content.
- Select Categories & Locations.
- Click the Publish button.
- If this panorama will be part of a virtual tour, copy the panorama shortcode and paste it into the post that will contain the virtual tour. You can also change the Panorama’s visibility to Private so that it does not appear as a standalone entry.
