I've just upgraded to Joomla 1.6 and am unable to find a way to create rollover images in my articles. JCE is not supported for 1.6 yet and this was the only way I could do it before.

Has anyone else experienced this or have a solution for it?

Thanks

You could create a javascript file with the rollover code in it. Then reference the javascript file in your joomla template. Then in your pages you would have to code each link to make use of it. This is basically what the plugins do behind the GUI, but they make it easy and clean to do and repeat. The other options would be to wait until JCE for 1.6 is released, until someone else code something that will fill this void, or build your own solution for the time being.

NOTE: The examples are just standard HTML and JavaScript. You can use the examples to then integrate them into your Joomla 1.6 based website.
