    This is a great plugin and probably the only 360 image block for Gutenberg (at least until now in Jan. 2019.) But it still needs improvement. Here is my output:

    * Errors:
    1. I could not make “Insert from URL” work. It is all blank when I insert a URL. Then I upload the same file to the site and place it that way and it works.
    2. “Dragging” the image to different directions works opposite the way it should be. Check this image on Google maps for example. The dragging direction on the plugin works the opposite way.

    * Suggestions:
    1. The size is in pixels. The image cannot be used for “100%” width because the percentage measurement is not an option. I suggest adding support for Add support full and wide align images. More information here.
    2. The icon to full screen is a little bit misleading. It suggests that the user can use a VR viewer to see the image but what it does is expanding the image to full-screen. I suggest using this icon.

    Hi @bluebird2,

    Thanks for your interest in the Algori 360 Image Gutenberg Block plugin.

    I could not make “Insert from URL” work. It is all blank when I insert a URL. Then I upload the same file to the site and place it that way and it works.

    The “Insert from URL” didn’t work for you because of Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS). When your site A tries to access resources from site B, the browser will block this transaction unless site B sends Access-Control-Allow-Origin response headers that explicitly grant permission to site A.

    The icon to full screen is a little bit misleading. It suggests that the user can use a VR viewer to see the image but what it does is expanding the image to full-screen. I suggest using this icon.

    The VR headset icon is a CTA to enter VR-mode with a headset and falls back to fullscreen-mode when one is on a desktop.

    The size is in pixels. The image cannot be used for “100%” width because the percentage measurement is not an option. I suggest adding support for Add support full and wide align images. More information here.

    The current update we are working on will have both alignwide and alignfull, but please note that themes also have opinionated implementations of these wide alignments.

    “Dragging” the image to different directions works opposite the way it should be. Check this image on Google maps for example. The dragging direction on the plugin works the opposite way.

    About the mouse “dragging” direction, we shall reverse it as per your request.

    Thanks again for the great suggestions. 😀

    Thank you for your reply. I think supporting alignwide and alignfull is really important. Also, width should be defined in different ways. Having it in pxl is really limiting the usage of the plugin. The users need to be able to define the width in percentage as well.

    For “Insert from URL” I think you need to have a message there that explains the problem. Otherwise, it is confusing for users.
