panorama display within wordpress

by marquee » Tue Feb 23, 2010 2:00 pm

I have a 360x180 panoramic tour rendered out of AutoPanoTour with the respective HTML file swfobject, the data folder and all the XML files associated with the tour.
It work just fine when played through the HTML container but am having great difficulty trying to get it working within word-press.

Firstly I ftp'd the entire folder onto the server as it failed uploading media.
but now I am having issues calling up any of the XML files, swfobjects or even the data folder.

I am no word press expert but It seems to me that simple usually the html container call upon the xml and the swf file.
In word press it seems I have to call upon the flash file but how does it address the other files, I'm really stumped.

does anybody have a workable solution?

Appreciate your help in advance

cheers

I use wordpress for my photographic site and use the embed option in APT then it is a simple case of wrapping the code inside an object statement.

Look at the source code on this page http://www.photosbykev.com/wordpress/photography/landscape-and-waterscape/panoramic/derelict-cow-shed/

it should look something like this
Code: Select all
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="600" height="400" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0">
<param name="src" value="http://www.photosbykev.com/panoramas/wylfa_derelict/derelict.swf" />
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="400" src="http://www.photosbykev.com/panoramas/wylfa_derelict/derelict.swf" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Ax I understand it sound and video assets, linked with a tour, cannot be embedded - so how wouold you handle those?

I would make a page on wordpress with a reasonable picture of the pano and a description which then linked to a standalone page of the real pano with full screen options etc. Wordpress is a good wrapper for images and pages but it doesn't like playing with other programmes.

I created a folder on my server for awkward pages and have subfolders in there for different panos

edit:

another solution would be to still create a page in wordpress so it showed in the sidebar BUT install the wordpress redirection plugin at http://urbangiraffe.com/plugins/redirection/ . If you then create a 301 redirection for that page to display the standalone pano page it would be a cleaner way of doing it

It seems it is necessary to do rather a lot of extra work to embed a tour created with APT/PTP.

This is not likely to appeal to the typical APT/PTP user IMO.

The whole point - as I see it - of using APT/PTP is to avoid having to mess with the XML stuff.

I think I cracked it, it seems to work for me, anyway:

http://picturesthatsell.com/?page_id=37

Here's the code I used, which I think Wordpress came up with, and I just tweeked:

<object style="width: 960px; height: 540px;" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="960" height="540" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0">
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="quality" value="autohigh" />
<param name="base" value="http://picturesthatsell.com/tours/demo/" />
<param name="src" value="http://picturesthatsell.com/tours/demo/demotour.swf" />
<embed style="width: 960px; height: 540px;" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="960" height="540" src="http://picturesthatsell.com/tours/demo/demotour.swf" allowfullscreen="true" base="http://picturesthatsell.com/tours/demo/" quality="autohigh" menu="false"></embed>
</object>

All my XML and images are un-embedded, by the way. Still works fine.

Hope this helps!

Hi.. You know.. these panos are really beautiful.. Although I do not know why they do not feel dynamic in their movements.. They feel very ridged, probably the setting you have used I guess, perhaps due to this code, not to worry it works ok'ish.. but nevertheless beautiful photography.. So the question has to be asked, why did you use such a tacky yucky green glowing arrow.???. you have spoilt beautiful photos.... Too big, too glowie, too green!!.. Sorry.. but I hate seeing a beautiful pano ruined.. Would you like me to make you a nice one for free??? :)

This will look a lot more stylish... If you want to use it you can have it.... Why waist a nice logo anyway... ;)
