How to make Divi map module Pin open by default

Divi theme have a integrated Map module. The maps modules makes it easy to embed custom Google Maps anywhere on your page. You can even add unlimited pins to the map, and define a custom viewport starting location.

Right now this module don’t have a option to pop up map pin marker on load.  We must hope it will be implemented surely in one of next main updates. As a admin of more than twenty install’s of custom Divi websites I know that most of client’s definitely want Divi map pin marker  to be opened automatically on load of desired page in browser.

Divi map module Pin marker open by default

The solution for this problem is just one line of code that need to be added in frontend-builder-scripts.js file.
You can do it this way:

Open file divi/include/builder/script/frontend-builder-scripts.js
find this:

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
                                if( infowindow_active ) {
                                    infowindow_active.close();
                                }
                                infowindow_active = infowindow;

                                infowindow.open( $this_map_container.data('map'), marker );
                            });
                        }
                    });
                }

and replace with this:

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
                                if( infowindow_active ) {
                                    infowindow_active.close();
                                }
                                infowindow_active = infowindow;

                                infowindow.open( $this_map_container.data('map'), marker );
                            });
                                infowindow.open( $this_map_container.data('map'), marker );
                        }
                    });
                }

now the map pin will be loaded open. Enjoy!

  1. Hey David, thanks for the article!

    In case you’re interested, I (finally) came up with a way of doing this without needing to edit the core files. Basically, you can access the map object and then add another identical (overlaid) set of markers to the ones Divi adds, but set them to have the infobox open. Details here, if you’re interested:
