I have just discovered uMap. I don't see in the sidebar an option to embed a map. Is that still a feature? Kurt Menke

Could you elaborate a bit more what you would like to achieve? Where do you want to embed a map and to what ends?

I run a program named Community Health Maps designed to empower people working with underserved populations with open source mapping technology. I thought uMap could be a great tool for presenting community data collection online. From earlier tutorials it looked like there used to be a sharing setting in the sidebar that would provide a code snippet that could be used to embed the map into an organizational web page. I don't see that option. Is that still possible?

Now I got you. You do not try to embed a map into umap but you want to embed the umap in another website.

This shouldn't be much of a problem. You can for example just include the URL of the umap page in an iframe. There are other websites that have done that, for example Spanish Walking. Have a look in that page's code to see how it is done if you are unfamiliar with it. should work. Other installations of umap might prevent the page from running in a frame.

Update: I now also found what you were originally looking for I think. In the map settings side panel (right side) go to user interface options and make the embed control visible (always or hidden). Then you get a share icon on the left hand side of the screen with the embedding code.
