Hi there everyone,

We are a architecture practice using Pano2VR to stitch together panoramas for clients in the early design stages of projects - we think the software is great!

However, we have a slight issue when it comes to functionality with mobile phones, iphones/IOS mainly. We know that IOS mobile browsers do not support full screen but even when we include multiple full screen commands (full screen item & Full screen buttons) the full screen option button only stays visible on desktop computers (it disappears on android phones too, however we can double tap for full screen on android). Is there a way to amend this?

Our current method of sending work to our clients is hosting a page on our wordpress site, we upload a graphic which links to a "index.html" from our uploaded ggpkg files. However, we lose gyroscope functionality?
This is frustrating as this provides the best formatting for general mobile use, we would like to continue using this method of linking to the index.html file, but we would like to get our gyroscope functionality back, is there a way?


Any help is very much appreciated!

- Niall

Hi Niall,
For all CMS related questions you should post in the CMS forum so have moved this to there.
Just means the right people will see it.

The plugin has a setting for Gyro to be used for mobile devices. However in the CMS forum there is a post that covers having a pop out Cardboard output.
You could use the same method to export a normal pano with gyro rather than a cardboard output.
All you have to do then is open the normal templates settings and select gyro.
