H5P Guides


Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I use H5P.org to host my H5P content?

H5P.org is for testing purposes only. You should not use it to host "real" content. Self host or use H5P.com instead.

H5P without a CMS?

You can display H5P content on any website as embeds from H5P.com or a publishing platform with H5P support. 

If you would like to create your own plugin for your website, you could try porting the h5p-php-editor library into the language of your choice. 

Can I customise H5P?

If you have a little bit of experience with HTML and CSS or the desire to learn how to write code, the answer is 'Yes!'. H5P is open source and everything you install on your site is yours to customise and modify. Take some time to read the documentation on this page. Feel free to ask the developer forum for help. You can find almost all the code related to H5P here

How can I customise the H5P Editor to match the style of my site?

If you aren't able to customise the code yourself, the answer is probably 'no'. Most of the customisation related to H5P Content Types is visible in the settings in each of their editors. If you can't find what you're looking for there, I recommend reading this page and searching the forums or finding a web developer to do it for you. 

With some knowledge of HTML and CSS, you can customise the look of your H5P Editor and H5P content types to the theme and colour scheme of any website. For example, you can change the style of the editor by following this tutorial

Can I make my content private?

It is not possible to make content private on H5P.org. If you want full control of your content types, have a go at using H5P in one of the supported plugins

How do I store results and user statistics?

Documentation on storing results can be found here.

How can I add more questions?

You can use Quiz (Question Set), Course Presentation or Column to add more questions. You can also add different content types or activities
