Zoomify embed for WP

Description

This Zoomify plugin for WordPress allows you to upload .zif files to your media directory. You can then create the Zoomify imagebox
with toolbar by using the shortcode [zoomify file=”fileUrl” skin=”Default/Dark/Light” zoomlevel=100] (zoomlevel is optional), where “fileUrl” is the url/permalink to the zif-file.
The skin parameter has three options: Default, Dark and Light. If the skin parameter is omitted in the shortcode the Default skin will be used.

For example, if the permalink to your file is http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/myAwesomemap.zif, the shortcode will look like this
[zoomify file=”http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/myAwesomemap.zif” skin=”Default”]. If copy-pasting this example does not work, please type out the shortcode manually in your WP editor so the double quotes are properly formatted.

I am not connected to Zoomify in any way, I coded this plugin for personal use and figured this may come in handy for other Zoomify users.

For now the plugin only supports one Zoomify image per page or post, but support for more images per page will be added in the future.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly (reccommended).
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Go to the Zoomify settingspage in the admin dashboard and upload the JS file which was included with the Zoomify software, select your Zoomify version and save the settings.
  4. Upload your .zif files via the WordPress media section
  5. Use the shortcode [zoomify file=”fileUrl” skin=”Default”] shortcode to create the Zoomify box on any post or page.

I have a Pro/Enterprise version of Zoomify, can I use those options too?

The plugin now has the option to upload your Pro, Express of Enterprise JavaScript file so you can use it with your Zoomify files. I will add specific options for those in upcoming releases. Please drop me an email and let me know which Pro/Enterprise options you use the most and I will add those first.

What Zoomify options can I use in this plugin

This plugin now supports all options that are available in Zoomify Free edition:
* zskinpath
* zinitialx
* zinitialy
* zinitialzoom
* zminzoom
* zmaxzoom
* znavigatorvisible
* ztoolbarvisible
* zslidervisible
* zlogovisible
* zfullpagevisible
* zfullpageinitial
* zprogressvisible
* ztooltipsvisible
* ztoolbarsize (standard or large) (This sets the size of the skin toolbar)

Please use the notation for the parameters as described above. The plugin translates these to the parameters Zoomify needs. The Zoomify documentation provides more detail about the parameters and their settings.

Can I have more then one Zoomify image on a page or post?

At the moment this plugin only supports one Zoomify image per page or post.

Can I add more skins to the plugin?

You can by uploading your custom skins to [your site url]/wp-content/plugins/gh-zoomify/assets/Skins] and use the foldername in the
shortcode. Please use the Zoomify style to name the folder. First letter uppercase and no spaces. For example ‘Mycustomskin’.

Can I apply extra styling to the Zoomify container block?

The styling of the containerblock is kept as clean as possible, so you can style away by selecting #zoomifyContainer in your own CSS file
or your theme’s custom CSS section.
