How to remove footer in maps? Can I customize the maps footer?

We use PRTG maps to run on a large screen in our office for support uses. After we updated to the latest version we got scroll bars and a PRTG footer in our maps.

We are using the iframes with a refresh timer in Google Chrome to switch from 1 map to another in a circle. Before the update the iframes fit perfectly for the screen(1900x1050).

We've looked the .htm files through both the pagefooter, htmlfooter and the mapshow files. But we cannot locate where we can remove the text.

Can you help?

Removing or Customizing the Footer in Maps

If you want to hide the PRTG branding in the footer of your PRTG maps, or if you want Maps to carry your own branding there, please follow the steps below:

(1) Remove PRTG Branding from Maps

  1. Go to the /webroot/css subfolder of your PRTG installation.
  2. Open the file styles_custom.css with an editor (if this file is missing so far, just create it manually).
  3. Add the following code to the file: body.mapshow .prtgmapfooter{display: none;}

This will remove the original PRTG footer from your Maps. If you want to show your own text there, go on with the next step.

(2) Customize the Footer in Maps

  1. Remove the original footer as described above.
  2. Go to the /webroot/javascript subfolder of your PRTG installation.
  3. Open the file scripts_custom.js with an editor (if this file is missing so far, just create it manually).
  4. Add the following code to the file: $(function(){ $('body.mapshow .prtgmapfooter').html('<div>ANY text you want</div>').show(); })

The text you enter in the div tag will then show up as footer in your maps.

Note: You might have to reload the page with the Map with F5 to show your customization. The article applied to PRTG Network Monitor 13.2.3 until 18.2.xx.

Important: The following approach is deprecated as of PRTG version 13.2.3!


Hi,
to remove the footer, please search the file
<PRTG Install Directory>\website\javascript\customerscripts.js
andjust add the following code:

$(function() {
    if($("body>div").last().attr("style") === "font-size:9px") {
        $("body>div").last().remove();
    }
});

For public Maps please use the following instead

$(function() {
  $('div[style="font-size: 9px; position: absolute; bottom: 0px;"]').remove();
});

That should do the trick.
Best regards

This code already exists in the customerscripts.js, so unfortunately this didn't do the trick. I am not able to link pictures here, so i'm unable to show you what i am talking about.

The footer just says: PRTG Network Monitor 12.3.3.2855, Network Monitoring Software C 2012 Paessler AG. Servertime 03-09-2012 13.46.45(UTC +01:00)

Hi,

I have the same problem. The footer says PRTG Network Monitor 13.1.1.1088 , Network Monitoring Software © 2012 Paessler AG, Serverzeit: 14.03.2013 23:23:08 (UTC+01:00) and there are vert. and horiz. scroll bars although the map is half of the shown space. The customerscript.js is adapted like posted above. No other modifications were performed on the webgui. is there a solution to eliminate the scroll bars?

Sorry. This is pretty simple, but it still displays the footer.

My styles_custom.css file reads: body.mapshow .prtgmapfooter { display: none; }

I am running 18.1.37.12158.

Any ideas?

Hi there,

Could you try adding the following to the "styles_custom_v2.css", please note the V2 as only this will work in the facelift:

.mapshow .prtgmapfooter {display: none !important;}

Best regards.
