Pano Link allows you to join the previous and next panoramas in one tour using a hotspot so at the end your tour visitors can easily move from one room to another only by clicking the hotspot.
This tutorial will focus on the steps how to link a hotspot to the next and previous pano using the pano link plugin. Follow the following steps to nail it.
