Since this is a contact form, it doesn't handle maps, but forms.
However, I understand that many people want a Google Map in their contact pages.
A smart way to include a Google map is using Mike Reumer Googlemap Plugin .

Howto
  1. Install the plugin and ensure it works
  2. Create a "Fox Contact" menu item, then insert your map code in "Events" -> "Page top text", or in "Events" -> "Page bottom text".

Use the following code if you want the map to be displayed in the contact page
mosmap lightbox='0'
or use the following code if you prefer to have the map within a lightbox window.
mosmap lightbox='1'
Surrond the code above with { } brackets, but because of a Joomla bug documented on Reumer's website, don't forget to leave a blank space between brackets and inner code.

See a demonstration contact form with Google Maps embedded.
Read about troubles embedding a Google map in a Fox Contact Form and how to solve them.

I didn't understand the problem.
Do you want to hide the map or hide the link?

if we follow the instructions and simply add the "mosmap 1" option, then at first use we get the link AND the map. However click on the link and the map disappears but re-opens in a lightbox

It seems you forgot the parameter show='0'.
Try:
  • mosmap show='0' lightbox='1' to have a link, or
  • mosmap show='1' lightbox='0' to have a the map "inline" without the link

The following is an example of mosmap show='0' lightbox='1'
Your address, 98

and please confirm if it works.

can confirm the show trigger is needed. Without it google map is shown directly and disregards the lightbox setting. Do wonder how you got the link to blink :)
