Setting panel to closed in embeds

I’m loving MapHub - this is an amazing platform, so thanks for all the work you’ve done.

I was trying to figure out how to embed a map and have the panel closed in the default view. I don’t want it completely hidden, though.

Is there a way to do this that I’m missing? Thanks!

Hi Rik,
not yet, but it’s on the list if I’m not wrong.
Here is an older post in which I also mentioned that, fyi:

Have a good weekend and welcome to the forum!

Thanks! I hacked it a bit to display a different embed on mobile (without the panel). I used this CSS trick:

It’s not perfect, but it avoids the rather unusable squishing that you see when you view on a phone. Here’s the page where I did this:


Nice idea, good workaround!

Unfortunately in my map case the side panel is important to the site :slight_smile:
But for others this could be helpful.

PS: I like your image integration on the map info pop-up, maybe I will try that too.

edit: Yes, the image inside the map-info pop-up looks good :slight_smile:

So what you’d like is to have the embed panel present, but closed by default? This is in line with @Michel’s request right?

Yes. If it’s completely turned off there’s no way to filter. I’d like to be able to have the panel set to the closed state initially (for mobile).

I added a closed option for embed panel in the embed wizard.



Nice, thanks Zsolt!

Did I understand the workaround right and I could display now one version of the emedded map with the panel closed option and the other version with an open panel? (Mobiles/Desktops)

@Michel: Yeah - you just create two separate embeds and display them for either mobile or desktop using CSS code. Here’s what I’m using:

<div id="content-desktop"><iframe width="100%" height="576" src="" frameborder="0"></iframe></div>
<div id="content-mobile"><iframe width="100%" height="576" src="" frameborder="0"></iframe></div>

Here’s a screenshot of how it looks now with the panel closed:

I did the same on my site and it works perfect.
Actually I copied my old maphub iframe and added the “&panel_closed=1” option.
And as in your link described, I put this code line in the main.css:

#content-desktop {display: block;}
#content-mobile {display: none;}

@media screen and (max-width: 768px) {

#content-desktop {display: none;}
#content-mobile {display: block;}


Thanks for sharing this idea Rik!

Greetings, Michel

Nice solutions, glad to see it works!
