Many thanks for the reply Andrew!
I have had a quick read through the details of the SWFAddress Plugin and I'm not quite sure it does what I am looking for.
I'm not too good with the jargon at the moment but I will give it a go...
What I am looking to do is have a simple html page with links to panos. These panos will be contained within a tour made up of a number of panos. Are we saying that when we go to a tour, it is only ever the first pano in the tour that loads???
That is correct.
Can we not link straight to the 3rd pano from a simple html link?
As far as I know it can currently only be done by making use of the SWF address plugin.
Many people have requested the functionality you seek - whether it may be implemented in PTP Version 2 I don't know.
If you don't wish to have the panos linked in a tour then you could create single pano 'tours' for each pano.
