View Full Version : image map linking question

06-16-2005, 04:17 PM
Hello DCF

I was trying to figure out how to use the image map to draw a box around some text and link it to a email (or open up the email program)

Thanks in advance

Imagelinks only works on images and to access it you use the symbols for it in your properties window when the image is selected.

Sorry, I meant to say create a hot spot and link the hotspot to the email address ;)

A hotspot is a link in an imagemap, you're not making sense.

Do you have a page/code that can explain better what you are trying to do?

In order to make normal text a link just select it and insert the url in your property window. If it is not a page, but an email, write mailto:email@email.com (replace 'email' with your info) in the same area where you would insert the pagename.

If it's an imagemap, use the imagemap tool in your property box after you've selected the image, draw you map on the image where you want it to be, and insert link like above.
