I have DW CS4 and I would like to select a part of one image and create a link to a different page. I would like to select a few different parts of the same image and make them link to deffierent pages. I have tried using hotspots for this but I have no way of knowing if they work. HELP!!!:confused:
Basically I want to turn one image into several buttons as it were...

You need to use hotspots for this I think. Why do you have no way of telling if they work? :confused:

Are you comfortable with CSS?

Thanks for your replies.

I'm afraid I'm not particularly good with code...

I'm designing all of the new website before replacing the old one and so can't see if the buttons actually work or not.

I've gone into live view - but this only seems to let you know what the page itself looks like and not how it functions - is this right?

How do I test if it works properly?

have you defined your site ? view it in a browser and it will be functional

As Ed says. Preview in browser to see if your site is working. Usually F12 on a PC.
