Hi Kumar,

Although we don't have a step-by-step guide to implement the IMA SDK specifically on your Wordpress website, the process if very similar to the one outlined in our Getting Started Guide.  This is assuming that you will be implementing the HTML5 version of the SDK on your website. 

Basically, if you have access to the Wordpress template files, you can follow the instructions which outline adding ads.js and style.css files.  You would also need to make sure in the footer.php file to link to the ima3.js file as such:
<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>

But as stated, I'd suggest walking through the Getting Started guide and let us know if you have any questions.

Hi Wesley,

Thank you for raising your concern to the IMA SDK team.

For us to guide you accordingly, can you confirm if you have followed the steps on how to integrate the IMA SDK into a simple video player app from our Getting Started Guide? Also, is the issue reproducible using our samples? If not, kindly follow our guide and if the issue is not reproducible using our sample, you can use it as an example/reference to update your player. However, if issue persists, kindly provide the following information:

  • Sample where issue is reproducible
  • Vast Ad tag
  • Screen recording of the issue (mirroring the steps to reproduce the issue)
  • Is the ad geo-restricted to a particular location? If yes, specify the location.
