H5P Comes to the Grav Open Course Hub

With the most recent release of the Grav Open Course Hub, site authors can insert H5P content (hosted on h5p.org) into any page using a simple Shortcode (i.e. [h5p id="712"]). In addition, a new H5P button is now available in the Admin Panel page editor to make using the H5P Shortcode even easier!

The development of this new Shortcode was greatly simplified by the amazing Shortcode Core Plugin, which lets Grav authors add their own custom Shortcodes.

H5P content is still supported via a custom content type (i.e. where custom fields are use to hold H5P information), which provides further flexibility for displaying one instance of a Grav page containing H5P content in multiple areas of a site via the Page Inject Plugin.
