Our Step-by-Step Guide

Update Sept. 2020: Facebook has changed their website starting September 2020. We are currently researching how to update the guide to reflect these changes to embed virtual tours on Facebook’s new design.

Step 11.

Copy the full HTML code to your clipboard by highlighting it & right clicking the option to Copy, or using keyboard shortcut CTRL+C. Paste the code into the index.html tab. Once pasted, click the button Save & Publish.

Pro-Tip:

You can also adjust the dimensions of the tour by replacing the numbers in width and height in the code. We suggest “1000” width and “600” height!

Now Your Tour Is Live!
