Facebook Pano within Timeline

Post by ggibbon » Wed Nov 21, 2018 6:09 pm

Hi there

Does anyone know if the "embed_p2vr.ggt"
still works within Facebook?

I have tried a few times after following old tutorial and can't get it to work.
My files are residing on "Amazon S3" bucket folder.

Thanks
Greg :) :D

Hi Greg,
You have not been able to embed in a Facebook post for a long time,
But what you could do is use it to have a nice preview image then link back to your server opening a new page.
In Pano2VR 6 you don't need the embed_p2vr.ggt.

How:
Go to the HTML tab under the HTML5 output and select the Edit Template button.
Select files for external embedding.
Also you need to set the Window Size, this will set the size of the preview image, 1200 x 630px is good for Facebook.
Then export as normal.
Upload to your server, then when you add the URL to your Facebook page you should see the preview image in the post.
To test, set your post to Only Me first.
Regards,
Hopki

Would be nice if you could solve my problem with responsive design of maps.

On iPadAir2 the map is too big.

Hi Harald,
Why not use scale logic block and make it smaller for different screen widths or set the size to percentage?

Thank you! Logic Block with iOS was a good hint! :D
