  4. Add a new article: Content > Article Manager > Add new article. (Or add to an existing article.)
  5. Add the GGPKG package to the body text of the article.
    This requires a bit of stringing attributes together. Below is a list of a few examples. The string starts and ends with curly brackets { } and the attribute descriptors are encased in quotes: ggpkg file="put_filename_here"
    • To show only the panorama or object:
      {ggpkg file="Package_ID" display_userdata="false" display_map="false"}
    • To show a preview image with a play button, a map and custom window size:
      {ggpkg file="Package_ID" start_preview="true" display_map="true" width="320" height="240"}
    • To show a map without a panorama:
      {ggpkg file="Package_ID" map_only="1"}
      Using the number, 1, turns the map_only function to, on.
