Notion tips & tricks

  • You can use the show_header parameter to hide your walls header, f.e. https://my.walls.io/starbucks?show_header=0
  • The Walls.io widget is fully responsive and will automatically adapt to the size of the section you are embedding it into. You can override this by setting a fixed width, height, rows, and columns when generating the embed code (we recommend going with the default for maximum layout compatibility).
