URL Parameters


URL parameters let you customize and fine-tune the behavior of 3D Showcase.

URL parameters are great when you want the same Matterport Space to behave differently in different places that you share it. By contrast, changes in Workshop change the Matterport Space everywhere you share it

For example you can share the normal, fully-branded version of a home on your company's website, but use a URL parameter to share an MLS-friendly version on an MLS listing site.


Add a URL Parameter

Just add the URL parameter to the end of the sharing URL. Then share the link like normal.


Add as many parameters as you want. The order does not matter.

You can also modify the URL before you embed it in an iframe.

<iframe width='853' height='480' frameborder=0 allowfullscreen src='https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=xxxxxxxxxxx&brand=0&help=1'></iframe>

The m=xxxxxxxxxxx URL parameter identifies the Matterport Space. It is the only URL parameter that is necessary. All other URL parameters are optional. If a URL parameter is not directly specified, the default value is used.

The order of the URL parameters does not matter. Just specify the ? mark first, and then & for additional parameters. For example, the following two URLs are the same:
