  4. Navigate to the WordPress page where the Zoom Webinar was embedded with a logged-in site administrator or the meeting host(same WordPress login email as the Zoom Webinar host email). Click Join via Web if you want to start the Webinar as a host right from the WordPress site or click Join Via Zoom App to begin the Webinar from the Zoom App.
  5. Once the Webinar is started by the host the attendees can visit the page, enter their name, email, and click Join Via Web to enter the Webinar from the same WordPress page without the need for a Zoom app.
    Note: If the attendee is logged into the WordPress site then they will see the email field as that is prefilled with their WP login email.Zoom WP Plugin Webinar join page
