    Hi! I hope there is a good soul out there who can help me on how to upload clickable map on may wordpress site. This map has instructions for regular web page, so I am a bit confused on how to upload it on my wordpress. I try to put some code in header.php, and some in HTML section on a new page, but nothing really works. Here is the link of the map: http://winstonwolf.pl/clickable-maps/europe.html. Also, could you tell me, how to insert link that direct me to a another page, when I click Spain or Portugal.

    P.S. I am a beginner so please give me straightforward instructions.

    Thank you

    These clickable maps you refer too are based on CSS style sheets. You need to ensure you have uploaded all files, including those CSS files correctly and to the correct folder, not just by copy and paste the codes.

    If you are using WordPress on your own server, it is easier because you can change file permissions. However if you are using WordPress on a shared host then your admin might not allow you to upload such files.

    I have similar problem before and found it is easier to use a hosted map generator (i.e. the map is hosted on a remote server), all I needed to do is to copy and paste few lines of HTML code, without worry about uploading any files or change file permission. The hosted map software I used was http://www.imapbuilder.net/ ---- you can also use Google Map editor directly but I found the imapbuilder editor easier to use and import my list of addresses.
