I have a graphic file which I have imported into a web page. It is a .gif. It shows a map. I want to be able to have individual locations within the map to have individual hyperlinks, so that you can move your cursor over the map and click on the locations within it to then link to photos and text about that location. C'est possible within BlueVoda?

Cheers,

Hi!
When you import your image. Use the hotspot utility & not the normal image import. (thatís the one next to the import image button with the red lines on it in BV) From here you can start making hot spots on your image for different URLís.
Or the other alterative is to put small images of pins or bullets over your map with different links on each one?

Good luck

Chris.

Chris,

Thanks alot for the reply. I will give it a try and will let you know how I got on, however, I am not sure what you mean by the "hot spot utilty" ( an addtional tool like "pix resizer"?) but I will sniff around and see what I can dig up, and also try the other suggestion you mentioned, before posting another thread. You are just a user like myself, no?, you don't work for Vodahost?

Cheers,

Ray

Hi, when you import an image into BV that you want to have more than one link to it. You would import using the button next to the image import. (the one with red lines on it) When you have the image on the page, double click on it & you will see the hotspot function appear in the popup box. This enables you to place invisible/transparent shapes over your image. Then you can give each one of these shapes its own URL/address.

if you want to see one at work check out the map on www.movingon1.com (http://www.movingon1.com) there are three hot spots on it - did it using the hotspot function icon
