PanoPress HelpIf you are experiencing problems with PanoPress, please read this page and see if your issue can be resolved by trying the following steps
Theme and Plugin Conflicts
The most common problem with any WordPress plugin is incompatibility with another WordPress plugin or WordPress theme, so ALWAYS try disabling other WordPress plugins and try using the default WordPress theme if things are not working right, then re-enable them one by one till you discover which is causing the problem – if you find a WordPress theme or plugin which is causing problems with PanoPress, report it in the forum and we will see if it is something we can fix on our end
Incorrect File Paths in Shortcode
Always make sure your files exist at the path you are using by checking the file’s url directly in a web browser
Bad Characters in Shortcode
Sometimes the WordPress visual editor adds odd or incorrect characters to your code, use the WordPress HTML editor to inspect your shortcode and make sure it is correct
Curly Quotes vs Straight Quotes
Always double check the quote symbols in your shortcode, make sure you are using only straight quotes
[" "]and not any kind of smart or curly quotes
[“ ”], curly quotes will cause the shortcode to fail
Check your PanoPress Settings !
Don’t forget to inspect the PanoPress settings in the WordPress admin area under Settings > PanoPress and confirm everything is set as you expect, and SAVE your settings just to be sure
Check Multiple Web Browsers
make sure your problem is not with a specific browser, PanoPress 1.x is compatible with Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer 8, 9, & 10, etc, and most browsers on iOS & Android – please let us know if you find a problem with a specific browser or device
Read the instructions !
Even if you are familiar with WordPress and PanoPress please review the updated PanoPress Instructions to make sure you are not missing anything and are using the proper shortcode format for the type of panorama you wish to embed
Search the Forums
If this is all new and confusing be patient, take the time to understand what you need to know to run your own website and don’t be afraid to make mistakes and take a bit of time figure out how to fix them, it will give you much better control of your site and understanding of how things work rather than just hitting the panic button right awayIf you are still having problems, start a new topic (or reply to an existing topic reporting the same issue) in the forum with the following info
