insert html image map

Recommended Posts

hi there, I am using Plattform Pro and I am trying to insert a html image map (http://arewethereyet.de/?page_id=22): the map is there but the spot of "Adelaide, Australia" isn't clickable. Is that a problem of Plattform? Is something overwriting my code? Here is the code I used, I entered it into the content area of the page: places we've been

You can't insert code that is calling for a specific HTML callout when wordpress doesn't know what means. You'll need to find a Wordpress plugin to show the map. Search http://www.wordpress.org/extend/plugins for whichever map site you got that information from. If one isn't available, then you can use any of the other map plugins available.

but i don't want to use any map site, I wanted to create the map myself. And it is showing the image that I want to use as map but it is not showing the clickable area. I have no idea where the problem is because on other wordpress sites the code seems to produce clickable images/maps...

i think it s the same problem this guy had: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/10142/image-maps-in-content-area/p1 but copying the lines in the functions.php didn't work for me...

If you want to create the map yourself, I guess you could always just create a JPG image and do it that way? I know I'm really not a lot of help but I've never done what you're asking. I see what you're trying to do, but I'm not familiar enough with coords to help. It looks like you're wanting a circle to show up at Adelaide, Australia for the coords you selected. From reading this page (http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_area.asp) it seems like some of your HTML may be formatted incorrectly. I would try to mimic the example on that page to see if you can get it to work. Also, please disregard my original reply. I was thinking about a completely different kind of map. I'm sorry if I caused any confusion!

but i did exactly like in the example, that s why i was wondering if the code gets overwritten by something and i might have to change the functions.php or any other file?

Seems to work fine for me, did you get this fixed? Is the whole Australia coord box covering up the one for just the city possibly?
