...or, sometimes they do show but I cannot select them in view mode. Help! Thank you.
Never mind on this one. I just realized that this app simply won't do what I thought it would do (allow the viewer of the story mp to select between layers using the legend). It appears I need to use a different app for that.
How about providing a bit more info?
For example which of the story map apps are you using? Story Map Tour, Story Map Journal, etc. See the list here if you are not sure of the name:
Apps | Story Maps
Also assuming this is a story map that can be shared publicly (i.e not one just for use inside an enterprise), can you post a link to your story too, and to the web map you are having a problem with.
Thank you for your help.
I'm using the Map Journal app.
I'm just now teaching myself the technology. I've created only a very
simple 3 section demo, simply to play w/the technology & teach myself what
it can do. I'll make it public & share it with you so that you can see
where I'm having an issue -- but don't expect my story to make sense. I'm
just throwing images & videos at it that I happen to have handy. Here it
Again, it's a simple 3 section (4 counting "home") test story where I've
named the sections Page 1, Page 2 & Page 3. On Page 2, I've experimented
with adding layers. My base map is "Imagery with Labels". To this I've
added two layers -- a "USA Topo Map" and a "World Street Map". I did not
hide either layer from the legend and I selected both in the content
configuration field of the main stage area. The layers are there in edit
mode. However, when I attempt to "View Live" this Story Map and navigate to
Page 2, the different layers are not selectable in the legend. Also, my base
map, "Images with Labels" does not get displayed, nor is it selectable in
How can I get my base map, "Images with Labels" to be the default display
in the main stage area, while getting both additional layers to appear in
the legend and also be able to switch between them, changing which map is
displayed in the main stage area?
Thank you for any help you can provide!
Oops here the link to the story map...
