This plugin will add a new toolbar icon (the letter ‘a’) next to the ‘Add Media’ button on the Edit Post and Edit Page pages. Upon clicking this toolbar icon, you will have the ability to upload your published Articulate content as a ZIP file. Once uploaded, the plugin will automatically extract the content, find the approriate .html file, and add code to your post or page that will display your Articulate content as an iframe or a lightbox.
Works with all Articulate products including:
Storyline 1, 2, and 360
Studio ’09 (Presenter, Engage and Quizmaker)
Studio ’13 (Presenter, Engage and Quizmaker)
Studio 360 (Presenter, Engage and Quizmaker)
We provide limited support for the Articulate plugin on the wordpress.org forums. One on one email support is available to people who bought the Premium Articulate plugin only.
Note that this trial version will allow you to upload 3 .zip files before asking you to purchase. For some people, this will be more than enough. You’ll be able to purchase the premium version that includes unlimited uploads at www.elearningfreak.com

- Does this work well with Articulate’s new responsive player in 360?
Yes, IFrames and lightboxes now resize perfectly with Articulate’s new responsive player in HTML5! We do recommend disabling the scrollbar in the scrollbar options if choosing to launch your course in a lightbox. This option is found when uploading your course with this plugin after selecting the lightbox option.
- Does this work well work with Rise?
Yes, IFrames and lightboxes resize perfectly with Rise for compatibility with all of your devices! We do recommend disabling the scrollbar in the scrollbar options if choosing to launch your Rise course in a lightbox. This option is found when uploading your course with this plugin after selecting the lightbox option.
- Does this work with Articulate Storyline content?
Yes, it works with all versions of Articulate Storyline including Storyline 360.
- I purchased the Premium version of the plugin and now my Articulate button is missing when I create a post. How do I fix this?
On your main plugins page, you should see a “trial” version of the plugin and also the “premium” version of the plugin. You’ll need to have both installed for the plugin to work properly. If you only installed the Premium version, you should have a message at the top of the Plugins page that says that your theme is missing a required plugin. Follow the instructions in that message to install the trial version and you’ll be good to go.
- If I delete the plugin, what happens to the content that I’ve uploaded?
The uploaded content is saved into the wp-content / uploads / articulate_uploads folder on your site. Thus, your uploaded content will not be removed if you delete this plugin.
- What happens if I try to upload more than 3 .zip files?
This is a trial version of the plugin that will allow you to upload 3 .zip files before asking you to purchase the premium version at www.elearningfreak.com. For some people, 3 files will be enough. You can always click on the Content Library tab to delete content items to re-enable the upload functionality. The premium version includes unlimited upload and premium support.

All of my courses look great whether I insert them as an iframe or a lightbox...especially the new Articulate Rise content.
Yep, I downloaded this plugin and it works as advertised. But what you didn't know was this is a trial version and you get 3 downloads. Then you have to pay $100 for the premium version. $100!!!??? I've never heard of a plugin charging that much - I guess that's why he calls himself a freak. I'm finding another plugin and refuse to pay $100 bucks for a plugin, plain and simple.
