Support » Plugin: Insert or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress » Paid and free version have the same problem

  • Riding on the wave created by the generosity of WordPress who created the need and market for a plugin like this and the success of Learndash and Articulate, the author feels entitled to sell the plugin to for $169 annually for up to five sites.

    Embeds only work properly full-width pages. One would think a plugin (or better a simple interface) in this price range would enable you to embed content properly on regular posts with sidebars and full-width pages.

    After playing around with different settings, I decided that it’s not possible to make it work for desktop and mobile devices without a user experience killing scrollbar.

    I’m actively searching for a different solution and hope someone will develop a different plugin soon or WordPress will allow the links in their regular embed-function.

    Hello lovesamla,

    First, the free version of the plugin here displays the content in a basic iframe with limited sizing. Depending upon the theme you’re using & the content authoring tool, you may need to make some additional tweaks. For example, one common problem with Articulate Studio & Storyline content is that the player frame gets set to a locked size. So, no matter what settings you choose with my plugin, the Articulate content will try to display at the size it wants to. Thus, you end up with content that doesn’t display fully or you get scroll bars. I’m not sure if you tried to contact me via my website, but this is a pretty common solution that resolves it for most people:

    It sounds like your course is set to “Lock player at optimal size” instead of “Scale player to fill browser window” in Player Properties in the Articulate authoring tool. For more information, see:

    https://community.articulate.com/series/4/articles/changing-the-browser-settings-and-player-size-in-articulate-storyline-2

    Can you try changing that to “Scale player to fill browser window” and see if that resolves it?

    If you’re not using Articulate content, it could be an issue with the theme. I’ve seen some themes that overwrite my CSS improperly. Thus, you end up with funky content. I can typically figure out those issues as well and make recommendations on CSS that needs to be updated to fix that.

    The premium version of the plugin that you mentioned provides many other iframe options including a responsive option and even custom sizing. Between those 2 additional options only available in the premium version, most of my customers can find a set of options that work for their site.

    If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to contact me here: https://www.elearningfreak.com/contact-us/
