appear.in WP

Adds appear.in rooms to your site via shortcode

Harness the power of appear.in by embedding secure peer-to-peer video chat rooms on a self-hosted WordPress site via the [appear_in] shortcode.



[appear_in room="custom-public-room-name"]
[appear_in type="public,private,post"]
[appear_in public_invites="0-7" private_invites="0-7" post_invites="0-7" ]
[appear_in public_room_button="" private_room_button="" post_room_button=""]
[appear_in public_invite_button="" private_invite_button="" post_invite_button=""]


Custom settings for appear.in WordPress are found on the Settings > Media admin page.

  • Public Room Name: define a public room name for default use in shortcode
  • Enable/Disable email invitations upon entering room: 0-7 invitations allowed

The settings page includes the following basic usage stats per room type:

  • Number of rooms triggered
  • Number of invites sent
  • Number & percentage of invites accepted
  • Average number of participants per room

If a public room name has not been explicitly defined in settings or shortcode, then the default public room expires daily.

The 'post' room type will generate a public room with name of the current post.


Documentation and sample implementation can also be found here.

Note: As of 2.6.2014, the appear.in API is still in beta. You may encounter minor bugs with your rooms.


The following function can be used to include rooms:

aiwp_include( $args );

Default arguments:

$args = array(
    'room'                  => '',
    'type'                  => 'public',
    'public_room_button'    => 'Public Room',
    'public_invite_button'  => 'Send Invitations & Enter Public Room',
    'public_invites'        => NULL,
    'private_room_button'   => 'Private Room',
    'private_invite_button' => 'Send Invitations & Enter Private Room',
    'private_invites'       => NULL,
    'post_room_button'      => 'Post Room',
    'post_invite_button'    => 'Send Invitations & Enter Post Room',
    'post_invites'          => NULL,



Each of the last four filters accept a second variable of room type (public, private, post).
