May i invite you to a "Shopping Tour", a simple online shop to sell my Panotour Pro plugins.. of course it had to be built upon a PTP virtual tour.

The search function is based on the "Find_Spot"-custom HTML template, and the individual product information is presented using the standard Websitebox-plugin.

The shop function is not realized as a publicly available PTP plugin, the open-source SimpleCart-javascript shopping cart is used.

There is one custom plugin called "SEO Booster", that still needs some tweaking to be publicly released. For the moment, it uses the following techniques to improve SEO ranking for a virtual tour:

1. Use of the panoname and/or panodescription as Deeplink-parameter to select the startpano, so these URLs for example are valid:

2. It constructs the 'description'-metatag from panonames and/or panodescriptions, other metatags like 'canonical link' and 'favicon' can also be generated.

3. Groupnames and -descriptions as well as panonames and -descriptions can be inserted as hidden HTML-elements into the main HTML-file, representing the "site-structure" using "<H1>, <H2>, <H3> and <p>" HTML elements.

So happy plugin shopping.. and the free plugins of course are also available via download link :)

Very cool!

I would recommend an overlay when you open the different sections, or having the background of your scene a grey or something that isn't white, as the titles can barely be read:

Thanks Annis, your feedback is always very much appreciated.
For the general appearance, i have added a light grey tone and transparency to the search bar, on the "contact page" there was another issue that prevented the background image from being displayed.
Have a great week!
