I've written a pretty simple plugin and submitted it to Wordpress.org. It embeds Matterport tours using the default snapshot and opens the tour in a nice little lightbox pop-up.

You can get it here for now:

Let me know what you think.

@Metroplex360

This is great!

Would you like me to add it to the Matterport 3rd Party Solutions Directory now (pointing to your webpage) or wait until the app is available via WordPress and point to that page?

Thanks,

Dan

Hey Dan -

Thanks for asking! I'll post here when it's accepted by Wordpress.org. That would probably be more proper, right? In the meantime, if anyone here tests it and has a problem, let me know I've never submitted a plugin to wordpress.org before.

If anyone uses the plugin, I'd love them to post here with a link. I'd just love to make sure it works. I'm learning the ropes of submitting this to Wordpress.org and would love to at least know that it worked great out of the box for a few people

Has anyone used it with the help menu automatically appearing after loading? Without the help menu it worked great. With the help menu on, it affected the image aspect ratio. Sure do like it though.

PeterG: Help Menu? Can you show me an example so that I can try to resolve this for you?

RyanW: I didn't see it on the site.

Add &help=1 to the URL address with the Iframe mod to see the aspect change

Thank you

PeterG: That sounds like a great feature to add.

I added it as a parameter.

[matterport src="https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=uKDy9xrMRCi" help="true"]

I've also added the floors, guides and start parameters.

@Metroplex360 Hey Chris, thanks for the plugin!
It works great on Chrome but I can't get it to work on IE (even your website looks all messed up on IE on my side - see attached screenshot).

I know... I shouldn't be using IE! but I'm sure many people (in my audience) still do.


Let me know if you have a solution.
thanks!
Matt

ArchimedStudio: THANK YOU! Seems that the cached images served from Google's image caching service did not contain a MIME type and IE is being its usual self. I added some code to just pull the image direct w/o caching for IE. Also rolled in a few other things...

= 1.0.3 =
* Feature: Added class - 'wpm[matterport ID]' to containers
* Fix: Internet Explorer - Fixed thumbnails by disabling use of Google Image Cache in IE.
* Fix: Added 1em of space below each tour when columns become 100% width (< 740px)
* Optimization: Thumbnail image size set to 600 if using columns (Instead of 900)

Just to let everyone know, the plugin is no longer pulling the title of the tours as Matterport have strangely removed the openmetagraph information from their pages ... which also means that posting to Facebook is no longer displaying the name of the model. I'm trying other methods to automatically retrieve the title -- but it seems they are loading everything with javascript on my.matterport.com

Hi Chris,

Thanks a lot, your plugin now works in IE... but the description has disappeared. Which makes me wonder: Instead of you (=the plugin) trying to automatically find the info about the tour, why wouldn't you add a small line of code so that we could put the title we want. In my case, I would like to put examples of "hospitality" tour, "construction" tour, etc...
title="construction tour" added before/after the tour URL would be awesome.
What do you think?

thanks!
Matt

@ArchimedStudio - The disappearance of the description was due to a problem with Matterport's website. They had removed the open graph tags from the pages and now that's fixed. This was causing issues with posting on Facebook too!

As far as your request, yes, I can add this feature. And I can add it where for multiple tours, you can separate by semi-colon. Good idea! I will work on it!

Updated! Update in Wordpress or visit the page. Titles can now be customized from the shortcode instead of pulling from the Matterport tours.

You can find it in the 'Developers' tab... Wordpress hasn't updated it yet (unless I did something wrong)

ArchimedStudio private msg quote post Address this user
I have to sign up (I think) to get to the developers' page.
How did you add your code? Maybe I can add it in my source, and when the plugin is up, I'll just have to update it.
thanks!

One more question/request
Any way to change/remove the overlaid title "Explore 3D Space". I don't mind keeping it, it's just that my website is bilingual, and in French, this need to somehow be translated.
thanks again!

Alright - it's online and includes internationalization for Spanish, French and German. If you don't mind, please let me know if I did it right.

ArchimedStudio private msg quote post Address this user
Ok, it's updated! Titles work great! THANKS A LOT!
I don't think EXPLORE 3D SPACE gets translated. I'm using qTranslate X for my website... it might be causing the problem.
It is really a minor "problem" and EXPLORE 3D SPACE is very close to French ("EXPLORER L'ESPACE 3D".

Thanks for addressing all this so quickly! It's really appreciated.

You can delete and reinstall. I'm trying to figure this out and not make a mess with my plugin page. I also didn't see the update available. I made v1.1.1 the current version which includes internationalization.

Just released v1.2. Wordpress.org is baffling me as to why it has removed the description, installation information, etc from the plugin ... so here it is:

= 1.2 =
* Title and Image URL cached as transients - much faster!
* Added address option: address=TRUE to show street/city/state/zip
* Added showStats option: showStats=TRUE to show XXX Scans
* Fixed source image sizes to 960 width in 1 Column Mode; 640x320 for 2 and higher.
* Added retrieval of Title/Address/# va JSON with OpenGraph fallback
* Changed CSS prefix to wpm- as a universal prefix.
* Updated MagnificPopup to v1.1.0

--

In other words, the plugin is much optimized, the actual image sizes of the thumbnails are 640x320 now and load way faster, you can optionally include the address sourced from your tour, and you can have the plugin display the # of scans that you did for the tour.
