The Widget appears in the lower right-hand corner, with the title ‘Inline Manual’. It provides a menu of content such as a list of walkthroughs or articles. However, if you want to hide the widget from your application, you can do it in few simple clicks. Note that it won’t remove the Inline Manual player from your site. Automation and analytics will still work.

In this article, we’ll show you how to hide the widget.

Hiding the widget from all pages

To hide the widget:

  1. Go to Sites and choose the desired site.

  1. Go to the Widget tab. Then go to Settings.

  1. Go to Widget button and check Hidden.

  1. Confirm with Save and Publish button.

Hiding the widget on mobile

Display widget based on rules

To display the widget based on rules:

  1. Go to Sites and choose the desired site.

  1. Go to the Widget tab. Then go to Settings.

  1. Go to Widget button and check Visibility based on rules. You'll see an option to add parameters the same when you're building a segment. This way you can display a widget only to a specific group of users.

  1. Confirm with Save and Publish button.

Conditionally hiding the widget via CSS

If you want to hide the widget on specific pages, you can use a CSS code:

.inmplayer-trigger { display: none; }

Your application might have specific class in the body tag, for example:

<body class="page-frontpage">

Then, if you want to hide the widget only on frontpage you could use:

.page-frontpage .inmplayer-trigger { display: none; }

You can paste the code under your Site settings -> Player appearance -> CSS tab or include it as part of your application.

Conditionally hiding the widget via JavaScript

Using the setOptions method, you can set whether the player widget will be shown or not:

inline_manual_player.setOptions({hide_trigger: true})

You can set it to be hidden by default (at Widget -> Settings -> Widget button) and set the hide_trigger to false instead.
