360° photos / tours

Does SmugMug have any support for 360 photo tours? I've been taking them as a part of my real estate photography business and I'm currently hosting them through CloudPano. SmugMug doesn't appear to allow iFrames in HTML widgets. Is there any other way to support 360 tours within my SmugMug site? I'd rather not have to build out a separate website and don't want to link away from my web properties.

    Though I'm not currently doing any 360 photo work, I am seeing more and more of it being presented in a variety of forms...which leads me to think it would be a good feature to add.

    I have already inquired last year and also made a request. When will this finally be implemented? Facebook can do that too.

    I believe it was Nick Sherlock, a customizer and Smugmugger who sometimes posts here, who once had a solution to 360 x 180 interactive display. It involved hosting the photos and code (Javascript) at a 3rd party site (such as one's personal web space), and a heck of a lot of customization code to work on Smugmug. I just cruised his site, and couldn't find it listed anymore. But it worked a couple years ago, so I'd bet that this still might be possible to accomplish with some creative workarounds.

    For that matter, if one has a custom hosting site that could also host the custom javascript code (lots of 360 JS is findable with searches) and the 360 x 180 photos, it would quite possible to make a look alike SM page(s) with the interactive displays. Then it would be a simple matter to link back and forth to those and make it look mostly like one site with SM as the jump-off. I used to do that myself long ago.

    Are there current popular blogging platforms that can also host interactive photos? (I actually don't know). Many Smugmuggers have a 3rd party linked customized blog as part of their Smugmug experience.
