I have successfully made a legend and teasers for a tilemill map. However, I don't know how to add a title and don't see a function for it.

If I wanted to add a title, how would I do that?

The normal workflow shown in most TileMill maps is to have a title incorporated into the legend box.

When you create your Mapbox webmap with your TileMill tiles, a title box will be generated with the title you name your Mapbox map with.

  • When will the title box be generated? I'm not seeing it. Mar 12, 2014 at 3:00
  • Give your Mapbox webmap a title, a description if you'd like, and save it. Copy the "share map url," and paste the URL in a new browser window to view the map as someone would be viewing it whom you shared it with. There will be a title block in the top left with the map name and description.
