The Second Life viewer from version 220.127.116.116335 (15-Dec-221) now includes by default a facility to create 360° Snapshots. I have usually uploaded the resulting 360 panorama (equirectangular) to Flicker where they can be directly viewed and panned round, and just added a link to the Flickr image in my WordPress blog posts. But Inara Pey in one of her helpful blog posts has described how to directly embed 360° Snapshots in WordPress posts…
EMBEDDING A 360º IMAGE UPLOADED TO WORDPRESS VIA THE CLASSIC EDITOR
- Use the 360º viewer to take your image.
- Upload the image to your WordPress Media Library.
- Edit the image via your Media Library, and copy the URL as it is given.
- Edit the post in which you wish to embed the 360º image and position the cursor when you wish the image to appear.
- Switch to the Text view (click the tab at the top right of the WordPress text editor), and enter the following shortcode:
[vr url=path-to-photo view=360] Where “path-to-photo” is the 360º image URL.
- Switch back to Visual (click the tab at the top right of the WordPress text editor), the shortcode should appear as you’ve typed it.
- Once you have created the 360º image shortcode:
- Use the WordPress Preview option to check the layout of your post / page and that the image is properly displayed.
- Use the Full Screen toggle option in the bottom right corner of the image to expand it to a full screen view and then click the icon again to return to the post / page view.
- If you see a message similar to “Enter valid URL” or “failed to load the VR scene”, check to made sure you have added the shortcode and / or image URL correctly.
Ah.. there seems to be no capability to add a “shortcode” block in our WordPress. To be investigated.
