Zaption Embeds


Insert a zaption video lesson into your site using a shortcode. An lesson id attribute is required. Adding a type attribute and setting it to modal will give you the popup version. Using the modal version will add a javascript file to your site hosted from

iFrame Embed – This code will display the lesson in a traditional iFrame. One thing to note is that the sidebar of the Zaption player requires a width of at least 980px.

JavaScript Modal – This will display a thumbnail of the lesson and the lesson will open in a modal over the page. This is a great option if you have a narrow page that does not allow for the full width of the iFrame.
