Step 5
Login as an admin into your WordPress site.

Step 6
Click on Plugins > Add New > Click on Upload Plugin

Step 7
Manually install the “Insert or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress Plugin” plugin file from: https://www.elearningfreak.com

Step 8
After installing and activating the plugin, create a new Post or Page in WordPress.

Step 9
The plugin will add a new toolbar icon (the letter ‘a’) next to the ‘Add Media’ button on the Edit Post and Edit Page pages. Click on that icon to start the upload process.

Step 10
Click on the “Choose Your ZIP File” button and then select the .zip file that you published earlier from Rise. Click on the Upload button.

Step 11
After the upload completes, select either IFrame, Lightbox, Link that opens in a new window, or Link that opens in the same window.

If you select IFrame, we recommend choosing to insert it as a Responsive IFrame in the IFrame Options section. This ensures that your content looks great no matter what theme you’re using.

If you select Lightbox, be sure to select the option to Disable Scrollbars.

Step 12
After selecting other available options, click on Insert Into Post. A small shortcode is inserted into your post or page. Click on Preview and enjoy seeing your Rise content displayed perfectly on your WordPress website.

That’s it! You’ve successfully uploaded your Articulate Rise course into your WordPress website.

Pro Tip: If you don’t like how your content looks, there’s no need to re-upload it. Simply click on the ‘a’ again & then click on Content Library. You’ll see all of the content that you’ve already uploaded. Just click on the content you want to re-insert, select the new options, and insert it again.
