[resolved] image-maps in pages? (5 posts)

    I have created an image map that works fine in a regular html file. When I try to place it in a WP page, however, all I see is the image, with no hotspots. (I know image maps are passe, but this seems like the best way to do a little tutorial on the windows at my church.) I am intending to use Lightbox JS for WP, but not being able to get the map working at all is throwing a crimp into this.

    The page is
    here
    Any ideas?

    I don't see any anchor links.

    Last time I did an image map was a looooong time ago...but it looked like this:

    <img src="menu.gif" border="0" width="354" height="608" ismap usemap="#menu">
    <map name="menu">

    (more links like this here)
    </map>

    yours has no href at all - just onmouseover events. And the onmouseover events only show the window status - which means the little gray bar at the bottom of the screen will show the stuff each area has set to say (which works in IE, but not in Mozilla). But nothing is set to be clickable, as there's no href link set at all.

    Ok, that makes sense...let me try to fix it...
    ...this is weird: the hrefs are there in my html editor, but when I cut and paste them into WP's html editor they get stripped out. That explains why the map worked in a seperate html file. Now what?

    Disable the rich text editor/wysiwyg thingie.

    Glory be! It works!
    For future numbskulls such as I, you disable the editor on your personal preferences page under "Users." I thought I had disabled it on the "Options" page, but that doesn't affect the page editor.
    Thanks, all.
