Mapframe view changes
There is a small change to interactive maps I would like to share with you. Previously maps using
<mapframe> were shown without a frame. After a recent update maps will now appear inside a small frame with the option of a text caption. Similar to how embedded images work.
Frameless maps are good for insertion as part of a template, whereas framed maps are good for insertion directly into the page, either by hand or by using the visual editor.
- To insert a map without a frame, add the "frameless" attribute:
<mapframe frameless ....>
- To add a caption, use the
Note: Adding the text attribute automatically enables a frame.
If you wish to keep existing templates from showing a frame, please add the frameless attribute.
Thank you for your time.
