We recommend carefully reading it to understand all the possible options to publish Virtual Tours. At the end of the page you can see the code that creates it. Comparing the page proper with its code you will understand the difference between code and text or content and the way elements are placed to compose webpages.
1 - Below this paragraph has been inserted a link to a Virtual Tour homepage. It is a text and as such it can be inserted with almost no limitations in blogs, forums, websites, social networks, documents, emails and even text messages. To see the page to which it points at select and copy the text of the link and paste it to your browser' adress bar :
2 - Below, instead, the link is no longer pure text but it contains a code with the instruction that allows to open the page to which the link points at by just clicking on it. Unlike the text of the previous paragraph, which can be inserted anywhere, a code can only be inserted within another code. Normally as in this case, the code that defines the link is inserted within the code that defines the entire page. To be able to edit the code of a page it is necessary to count on the permits needed : the access keyword to the server if it is your own website or an html editing tool such as those a great number of websites, social networks and blogs offer these days to their users :
3 - Since the instruction contained in the code is independent from the text visible on the link, both can be identical as in the previous example, or the visible text can be any other, ie, the Virtual Tour title. The anchor below opens the same page as the link in the previous paragraph :
4 - The instruction contained in the code or hidden part of the link can be simple, as the previous examples which contained only a reference, or more complex, containing on them an entire set of instructions with which the page is created according to the user's petition. This way, it is possible to share a Virtual Tour pointing not at its homepage but to a page with no other contents but the Virtual Tour proper, which will bear the elements defined at publishing time, passed on to the page through the link contents. When publishing the link below we have defined the interactive Virtual Tour's window dimensions and have opted to enrich it by adding all the attached elements that the options allow. Hence, on top of the interactive content, the publication shows a title, a table with data, a comments box, the image in flat mode and a button set to share the Virtual Tour in social networks and other media :
5 - Of course this instruction does not look well and it needs not to be visible :
6 - No matter all the examples above refer to sharing Virtual Tours inserting into webpages links pointing at them, the Virtual Tours can also be embedded straight into the contents of a page. This is done inserting within the code of a page a code that defines, no longer a link but simply a Virtual Tour. Below we have inserted the code that defines the same Virtual Tours with extra elements to which points the link in the paragraph above :
7 - Since the code defines the contents of the Virtual Tour to be displayed, it only takes to use a different code to define a Virtual Tour with different settings. As an example, we can embed the Virtual Tour proper, leaving out all of the extra elements we have included previously :
8 - Finally, it is also possible to make the content of our Virtual Tour float in front of the contents of a page. To get this done, the code of the page must contain the necessary elements to create this effect, which remain hidden until activated by a click on a link. Once again, the text visible in our link is independent from the code that contains the instructions that define the Virtual Tour. In the example below we will make a window float in front of this page with an interactive Virtual tour assigning to it other dimensions and adding to it just a button set with sharing options :
When you see a webpage on your browser, what you see is an interpretation that the browser does of the code or group of codes that define the page. To modify the look and/or contents of the page it is necessary to modify the code that defines it, usually in a text editing software. To understand the difference between page and code click to see the code that creates this page and compare it with what you see here. Note in remarks the codes used to insert links and Virtual Tours.
