Our Wordpress plugin allows you to easily insert images, videos and text from Elvis into posts and pages.


How does it work

The plugin adds a button to the Wordpress WYSIWYG text editor. It allows you to search and browse for images or videos directly in your server and insert the content straight from Elvis into posts.


Setup and configuration

This plugin requires Elvis server version 2.6.1 or higher.

Step 1: enable access to your server

Make sure your Elvis server is accessible from the internet.

Step 2: setup a guest user

Setup a guest user with restricted permissions.

Step 3: configure permissions for the 'public' field

Login to Elvis as administrator and go to System > Manage Permissions.

Make sure that users that will be using the Wordpress plugin have view and edit permission on the 'public' field, so they will be able to set the value of the field public to true.

Note: The public guest user should only have view permission 'public' field, do not grant the guest user edit permission.


Step 4: install and configure the Wordpress plugin on your website

Install the Elvis Media Manager plugin into your Wordpress site. You can use the built in WordPress installer and upgrader, or you can install the plugin manually. The plugin is available in the Wordpress Plugin Directory under the name Elvis Media Manager.

Once installed and activated, configure your server URL and specify the username and password of the 'public' guest user that you have created in Elvis.
