How can I display 360° panoramic images in PmWiki pages?


The ptviewer.phpΔ script provides a (:ptviewer:) markup to handle this, with the help from the PTViewer applet.


Proceed to installation steps as usual for cookbook recipe scripts.

PTViewer Applet Installation

Markup usage

Once installed, the following markup is available:

(:ptviewer <panoramic_image.jpg> <parameters...> :)

with the parameters:

The JPEG panoramic image file to display (required).
The parameter follows the image/intermap/url link wiki conventions. You may refer to Uploads for more details.
width=..., height=...
