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:
Hide on mobile
Hide on Desktop
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.
If you would like to manually edit the embed code, here are some examples:
