Hide the content panel when opening the map

By default, when the map loads, it opens with the content panel visible.

There are some use cases where you might prefer to open the map with the content panel hidden. For example on mobile devices, you might want to show the map and the markers first.

When the map viewer interacts with the map and clicks on a marker, the content panel will then appear.

You can easily set when you want to show or hide the content panel using the settings on the embed code generator.

The following options are available:

Always Show

Hide on mobile

Hide on Desktop

Always Hide

The content panel is always visible when loading the map. This is the default.

The content panel is only visible in landscape mode, typically desktop or laptop. It will not appear on mobile devices.

The content panel is only visible in portrait mode, typically mobile devices. It will not appear on desktop or laptops.

The content panel is always hidden when loading the map.

showinfo=all

showinfo=landscape

showinfo=portrait

showinfo=none
