Available options

  • panelMain=0 - remove main bar
  • panelThemes=0 - remove theme bar
  • panelIcons=0 - remove icon bar

  • panelColors=0 - remove color bar
  • panelColors=open - force the color bar to open (for shared as editable)
  • freezePanels=1 - prohibit opening/closing bars
  • roundedPanels=1 - rounded corners on bars
  • scrollable=0 - turn off map scrolling
  • isolate=1 - users will each edit a different version of your file, otherwise users will edit the same file

3. Insert the link in a <iframe> tag and place it on your website

Tag template:

<iframe
	width="100%"

Where THE_LINK - is a link you made in notepad.

For example:

<iframe
	width="100%"
	height="500"
	border="0"
	scrolling="no"
	style="border: none;"
	src="https://ioctopus.online/____How_to_make_a_mind_map__editable____b5f8cb61b9742e7723e635a7e4d23e57?menubar=0&panelMain=0&panelThemes=0&panelIcons=0&panelColors=open&freezePanels=1&isolate=1&scrollable=0&roundedPanels=1&platformMask=https://ioctopus.online/wp-content/themes/app/blog/how-to-make-a-mind-map/mask4.svg"
