1. Why should I use WPVR?

You can easily create a Virtual Tour for your place using WPVR. You simply need to provide a 360 degree panoramic photo, and this plugin will create a virtual tour which visitors can navigate easily. You can further add hotspots to include information or add more scenes to navigate to.

2. Installation

You can download the plugin either from wordpress.org or from rextheme.com. Once you have downloaded the file, you can then go to your dashboard, under plugin, select Add New and upload the file. Then Install and activate the plugin. Once activated, on the left side under your dashboard, you will find the option WPVR at the bottom.

3. What kind of pictures should I take to use in WPVR?

To make a perfect equirectangular image, you need to use a 360 degree panoramic photo of the area you want to preview.

4. Can I embed images and videos on hotspot?

Yes, you can include image source or video embed link on the section On Click Content in a hotspot, which will view the image or video when clicked on.

5. Can I Customize the Content on the hotspot?

Yes. You can create a custom class on your theme, stating whatever style you want. Then you can input the class name on the Hotspot Custom Class section in a hotspot, and the content displayed will be customized according to the style you set.

6. How can I embed a virtual tour using Gutenberg Block Editor??

Under common blocks, you will find a block called WPVR. Add WPVR block. Select the block and on the dynamic toolbar on the right, you will get the options to add ID, Height and Width. Collect the ID from the virtual tour you created. Assign height and width according to your convenience.

7. What do I do if I get “THE FILE (image link) COULD NOT BE ACCESSED” error?

Sometimes when you add a tour on your site, you might face this issue that rather than loading the tour it will give the error “THE FILE (…) COULD NOT BE ACCESSED.”

This error shows up when you are running a website under “HTTPS” (secured with SSL certificate) whereas your image link is under “HTTP” (unsecured).

To solve this issue, go to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General. Here make sure you have “https” added to both “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)”. That’s it. Your virtual tour will load with no issues. 



We are very happy with this plugin and have been able to receive lots of support conveniently from the website. It works well, it is simple to use and has most of the important features you would need.

Great Support

Very impressed with WPVR, looking forward to further features (like Google Cardboard feature) Support is great!

einfach und sehr gut – nach update nicht mehr!!

ein plugin, wie ich es gesucht habe. einfache benutzerführung und sehr gute umsetzung. (Damals 5 Sterne!!!) Update: leider wird in der neuen Version Google-Fonts verwendet und ein Video-Button einer externen Seite eingebunden, damit ist dieses Plugin nicht mehr datenschutzkonform und kann von mir nicht mehr verwendet werden... Deep fall from 5 to 1
