Troubleshooting Common Issues On WPVR #
If it’s a common issue, you might find the solution here:
1. The virtual tour is not loading on the webpage.
Go to your WordPress Dashboard > WPVR > Get Started > Settings.
Check the Enable Script Control option status.
-> If the Enable Script Control option is turned On, turn it off and reload the tour page.
If you wish to use this feature, you have to set the URLs of all the pages on your site with a virtual tour in the List of Allowed Pages To Load WPVR Scripts field.

-> If the Enable Script Control option is turned Off, there is a possibility that an optimization or caching plugin you’re using, is optimizing the WPVR JS assets.
Go to the settings page of your optimization/caching plugin and exclude WPVR plugin files from optimizing by the plugin.
2. The fullscreen button is not working on iPhone/iPad.
This is actually a restriction issue from Apple itself due to their security reasons.
Apple doesn’t allow any third-party application to use the full-screen feature on most browsers from their mobile devices.
You’ll face this on all iPhone models and most iPad models, especially if you’re using the Safari or the Google Chrome browser.
However, this issue is not appearing on some latest models of iPad.
You can try to update the iOS version on your iPad, update your browser, reload the tour, and see if the issue presists.
3. “THE FILE (…) COULD NOT BE ACCESSED.” error message on the tour.
Sometimes when you add a tour on your site, you might face this issue that rather than loading the tour it will give the error “THE FILE (…) COULD NOT BE ACCESSED.”
This error shows up when you are running a website under “HTTPS” (secured with SSL certificate) whereas your image link is under “HTTP” (unsecured).
To solve this issue, go to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General.
Here make sure you have “https” added to both “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)”.
That’s it. Your virtual tour will load with no issues.
