Hello. Does anyone use a Digital Signage plugin with the UUA Theme to power a display on a TV?

What do you want to display on a TV? If you want to display the web page, just connect your TV monitor to a device which may load the web page. No plugin required.

If you’re asking how to pull in content from the website into your digital signage– you would need to configure/develop your digital signage to pull in the site content using the WordPress REST API.

We use Rise Player which is free software on a large monitor run by an Intel stick computer. We use a goggle calendar app which display the content of the church’s calendar.

We are experimenting with the Foyer plugin, and that seems to work OK. We can put a Raspberry Pi at each screen, running Screenly.
