Using the Spott WordPress plugin
Whenever you create a new page, blog post, or any other type of WordPress post, you will now have an option to create a new "Spott embed" block. We'll go through an example of where and how to use the Spott plugin.
Step 1: Create a new page
Create a new page, blog post, or any other page type. Or use an existing one where you want to use an interactive image or video.
Step 2: Add a Spott embed block
Add a new Gutenberg block by clicking the " + " and look for the "Spott Embed" block.
A new block will appear, with a whole bunch of settings on the right side.
Step 3: Search and your media
In the settings on the right, you can select the media you'd like to embed. Either search for it by name or use the pagination and folder structure to look for your media manually.
If you can't find any media on the list, please make sure you have media created in your spott account. Media will appear once you've created them.
Once you click one of the media listed on the right, you will see a live preview of it between your building blocks.
Optionally, you can change some of the settings like adding a 360 parameter, changing the language, or adding more customizability with custom CSS classes.
Step 4: Save and Publish
Now save and publish to see the final result! 🥳
