Insert or Embed Adobe Captivate Content into WordPress

Description

This plugin will add a new toolbar icon (the letter ‘Cp’) next to the ‘Add Media’ button on the Edit Post and Edit Page pages and enable you to insert or embed Adobe Captivate content into WordPress. Upon clicking this toolbar icon, you will have the ability to upload your published Adobe Captivate content as a ZIP file. Once uploaded, the plugin will automatically extract the content, find the appropriate .html file, and add code to your post or page that will display your Adobe Captivate content as an iframe or a lightbox.

How do I increase the maximum upload file size?

The maximum upload file size is determined by your hosting provider, not a limit enforced by the WordPress plugin. To increase the limit, you need to update your php.ini file in your wp-admin folder to reflect the following:

post_max_size = 150M

max_execution_time = 60

max_input_time = 60

upload_max_filesize = 150M

(These settings will vary depending upon your server and content. You may need to contact your hosting company to make these changes.

Why does the upload never finish or I get a -1 error message?

In order to resolve this issue, you need to update your php.ini in your wp-admin folder to reflect the following:

post_max_size = 150M

max_execution_time = 60

max_input_time = 60

upload_max_filesize = 150M

(These settings will vary depending upon your server and content. You may need to contact your hosting company to make these changes.)

If I delete the plugin, what happens to the content that I’ve uploaded?

The uploaded content is saved into a folder on your site. Thus, your uploaded content will not be removed if you delete this plugin.

Doesn’t Load

I got the plugin installed, but cannot get it to work.

When I go to upload a file, it just spins and never completes. We originally had a file size issue, but we resolved that. Now, the file will just not load.

Any help is desired. I have spent a lot of money on obtaining licenses for Captivate 9, and also on themes and plugins in wordpress. I really don’t want to have to change systems.

Thanks!

Nonexistent Support

The support for this plugin is rubbish. After they have your money they never respond to your issues.
