    Hi there, I just updated to 2.48.2 Pro and noticed a new Map Header when creating a Mashup Query. I preferred to not have the new header so I uploaded an empty map-header.php file to my theme.

    Is this the best way to eliminate the header or is there something in the shortcode that can be added? I suppose I could also use CSS to hide the new header as well.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    The header is present because I’m planning to make all mashups searchable. It will soon contain a search box.

    I was assuming search is generally useful, but is this something you would want to prevent for your mashups?

    For now – as a workaround, an empty header or CSS should both work.

    Thanks for the info Chris.

    For myself, I can’t see using a search option in a mashup unless there would be a very large number of locations. My preference would be to have this option enabled via shortcode…possibly like:

    [mashup query="posts_per_page=-1&post_type=post" mapSearch="true"]

    Either way, I think it will be a nice feature for some scenarios.

    Thanks again!

    OK, I’ll look into making this conditional. Hopefully others will provide some feedback as well about whether the header is useful or not.

    Hi Chris. I notice that when I insert a mashup farther down on the page than above the fold, the fact that the cursor wants to rest in the search box forces the page down, that is, a person going to that web page won’t ever see the header of the web page.

    Here’s an example of that happening on a desktop browser (Firefox, in my case)
    at this URL

    Is there a way to disable the search box on selected mashups?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can’t disable search on a single map, but it is possible to enable/disable it for all mashups on the MapPress settings screen.

    I agree – the scrolling is annoying when the map isn’t at the top of the screen.  I just updated the plugin to version 2.53.8, which should only focus the search box when the map is being edited.

    Thank you for addressing that issue with the new version, Chris.
