This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The Moovly WordPress Plugin will allow you to generate videos from your existing/new posts, which can be used in the
same post that is used to generate said video. We’ll use your title, content (up to the line) and your
featured image to fill a template(s) of your choice. If you want to spruce up your post with that video, use the [moovly-post-video] shortcode.

If you want to engage your visitors, you’ll definitely love our [moovly-template] shortcode. We’ll generate a form based on your template settings and when your visitor enters his/her information, they’ll be presented a video with their content.

We recommend running it on PHP 7.4 or higher. All currently supported PHP versions are compatible with the Moovly plugin.
The plugin maintains compability with older PHP versions, but we only support the currently supported PHP versions.

The plugin does not work with Permalink setting set to “Plain”.



  1. Make sure the Settings -> Permalinks ‘Common settings’ is not set to ‘Plain’.
  2. Take a backup of your website
  3. Install the WordPress plugin
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  5. Go to the Moovly -> Settings page and enter your Personal Access Token
  6. Pick your post template in the list of templates.
  7. Create a new post or save an existing post.


I ran into some issues with the plugin. Can I get some help?

What is the recommended installation

We suggest a PHP 7.4 installation, and the latest WordPress version. If you are not sure about these things, make sure
to contact your system administrator. If you are the system administrator and are not sure, you can always install a
PHPInfo plugin that will tell you all the information that is needed.

Is this plugin free?

The plugin will always stay free. However, certain Moovly API operations (video rendering, …) are not free. The Moovly
API does come with a free trial. For more information, you can visit our developer portal (

I’ve updated and the plugin stopped working. What can I do?

We have some random behavior on older WordPress versions that when you update the plugin it randomly stops working for
your visitors. Disabling and re-activating this should solve it. This is also not unique to our plugin, but rather with
more JavaScript intensive plugins like ours.

Does this work with Gutenberg

Yes it does. It should work with any editor in theory, but some third-party editors strip [] or “” tags, which is vital
for shortcodes in general. Ones that do this, are therefore not supported with the visual editor, but you can always
resort to the code editor, which will allow you to put the shortcode in.

Which shortcodes are available?


[moovly-post-video post-id={optional:wordpress post id} width={optional:html width} class={optional:css class}]

[moovly-templates type={optional:template type} detailEndpoint={optional:string detailEndpoint} ] optional types: 'personal' | 'user-shared' | 'group-shared' | 'public'

[moovly-template id={required:template id} width={optional:html width} class={optional:css class} publish-to-youtube={optional:1} ]

[moovly-project id={required:template id} width={optional:html width} class={optional:css class}]
