I have created two hot spots on the same image to link externally. The first one links properly. The second doesn't. It wants to link to the external site via the home site.

These links work fine when previewed in FF. Link checker shows no issues.

Here is the site: http://myohioweddingphotographer.com/

It is the Wurzell link that isn't working properly.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Try changing it to;


<area shape="rect" coords="199,446,521,498" href="http://www.wurzell.com" target="_blank" alt="wurzell" />

Thank you for the suggestion. I do have it set that way. I changed it to that from www.wurzell.com after I saw that it wasn't linking correctly.

My code for this link:

<area shape="rect" coords="199,446,521,498" href="http://wurzell.com/" target="_blank" alt="wurzell" />

After uploading it looks like this in the source code:

<area shape="rect" coords="199,446,521,498" href="www.wurzell.com/" target="_blank" alt="wurzell" />

What is making it change from http://wurzell.com/ to www.wurzell.com/?
And is this the cause for it not linking properly?

>What is making it change from http://wurzell.com/ to www.wurzell.com/?Nothing should.

And you're right, unless you have a directory called 'www.wurzell.com' then it's not going to work. The http protocol demands that all absolute full links starts with 'http://'

No idea :confused: but just change it in the source code.

Yes, as a I said this morning.
