Mango will automatically choose the default zoom level and position of your map based on the extent of the layers it contains, however sometimes it’s preferable to have the map load at a specific area of interest by default.

Setting a custom default load position

In your map editor, zoom and pan the map to your desired load position, then open the SETTINGS panel from your administration sidebar on the left of the screen.

On the MAP POSITION tab, choose CURRENT VIEW to recalculated the default load position, then press Save.

Now the map will load at your specified zoom level and location.


Updating the custom default position

To update the default, re-position the map to a new zoom and position, open the SETTINGS panel from your administration sidebar. On the MAP POSITION tab, you will see that the current default is listed as CUSTOM.

Select CURRENT VIEW, and click Save.

Restoring the default view

To return to using the maximum bounds of all layers, simply choose FULL EXTENTS and press Save.


To set which layers are switched on by default, please see this article.
