Display & share options for older product features

by Zoe Manderson
how to

This tutorial is relevant to anyone using the new ‘Create’ editor that uses older features such as those outlined below.

  • A locale guide (that displays their itineraries/trails)
  • Bookmarking/trip planning
  • Alpaca Places library (snippets)

Get the ID for your new itinerary/map

Within the ‘Embed/Share’ tab you will find this URL. This is where you find the ID for your map. This URL is NOT compatible with older features, so instead follow the steps below.

Get a shareable link or embed code

Replace the ID component (XXXXXX) of the relevant URL with the ID you’ve found in the step above. Note: If you already have a custom domain, you will need to add that where shown below.

Default View



Expanded Map View


Article View


Get an embed code

Replace the bold link with the link you have created above.

<div style="position:relative;height:0;padding-bottom:56.25%;min-height:449px;box-sizing:border-box;"><iframe src="https://embed.alpacamaps.com/journey/itinerary_XXXXXXXXXX/default" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0" style="border:1px #d5d5d5 solid;position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;left:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div>

Connect your new itineraries to your Locale Guide (if you have one)

In the same way you would have previously, you need to add the relevant tag(s) to your map so that it displays in the correct category within your guide. It will likely be a tag such as ‘itineraries’ or ‘trails’. Check what you have previously used.

To add tags, expand the ‘Classifications’ section and click the pencil to edit.

Scroll to find the ‘Tags’ section at the bottom. Here you can type in your tags. Click ‘Save’.

Make sure you publish your map, then wait for your guide to refresh (note, this can sometimes take a few hours).
