Disable links in public maps



I want to disable all the links and popups in (public) available maps, because the map will be visible for everyone on the internet. Right now a hover over a sensor-tree brings up a popup with some options (clicking on them brings you to the login page) and clicking on the sensors also leads to the PRTG site.

I want a clean dashboard, without people having the ability to see any-more than provided in the map.

I found al similar question, but the solution doesn't work in version 8.4: https://kb.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/10283-how-to-disable-links-in-public-maps

Has this changed again in v12? I tried the suggestions recommended in the updated KB without success (https://kb.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/10283-how-to-disable-links-in-public-maps)

Any ideas on what is needed for v12?

The article has been updated again, please make sure to use the changes marked for PRTG 8.4 and later:

please apply the following patch to the file "prtg.js":

$(function() {
    $(".sensorgraph").attr("onclick", "");
    $("#showamap").delegate("a", "click", function(e) {
