Hi ,

anyone any ideas on this....

Have a HTML page with an image along the left hand side but want to be able to click our URL ( within the image)....

This is code without Mapper code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Final Stationery</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1264" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>
<BODY style="MARGIN-LEFT: 145px; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" bgColor=#ffffff
background="Final.jpg"
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV></BODY></HTML>

( Im not a web dev , so please ignore and "incorrect" use of HTML)


Using an Image Mapper , i can "MAP" the URL to point at out web site:

This code does that :

<MAP NAME="map1">
      <AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="337,429,688,305" HREF="www.experts-exchange.com" TITLE="">
</MAP>
<IMG SRC="final.jpg" USEMAP="#map1" BORDER="0">


But question is , how do i combine the code? Ive tried :

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Final Stationery</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1264" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>

<BODY style="MARGIN-LEFT: 145px; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" bgColor=#ffffff

<MAP NAME="map1">
      <AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="337,429,688,305" HREF="www.experts-exchange.com" TITLE="">
</MAP>

background="Final.jpg" USEMAP="#map1"

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV></BODY></HTML>


But this doesnt work....... any ideas?

thanks!

Yes, you won't be able to use the image map against the background image.

Simply place a transparent gif image on top of the logo at the size you need it, and then use that as the image for the image map.

Here's a transparent gif image:

Select File > Save As from the browser and add it to your web
Insert the image on the page - depending on your editor - and place it on top of where the logo is in the background.
