Design

Open the Design Editor by clicking the design tab on the top left corner to change the map layout, style, and spacing. Edit the design of the map that appears on your website using the layout section. Make changes to the width and height as well as change border styles in the style section. Customize the padding and margins (spacing around the widget) in the spacing section.

FAQs

My address doesn't show up in the drop-down

If your address does not show up in the drop-down, it means we are unable to find it in MapBox's API (sometimes different than their maps search). To get around this problem, try linking a Button widget directly to the map URL in Google Maps instead. If your address is missing from MapBox, you can send a request directly to MapBox to add your address.
