Web Page Link problem

Hi,

On our Intranet we have a page with an image that utilises image map (specify coordinates on the image, if you click within coordinates it links to whatever page you href'd to). However for whatever reason the links on it (none of them) do not work ... for some people. For those it does not work for, when they click the link, nothing happens. For me, it does not work. My browser recognises it is a link because I can hover over the link and the cursur changes to the white hand with pokey finger and if I right click it I can save it as a favourite ... and if I do this and then open the page via the favourite it works fine. I have also gone into view source, extracted the image/image map html code and put it into a separate html document, saved it, and it works fine outside of the Intranet page. I have IE9 and Google Chrome ... Chrome won't even display the image. IE9 displays the image but the links do not work. On a seperate computer using IE8 I have not been able to get it to work, but then for another user using IE8 it works. The only thing I haven't done is restarted my computer, I am about to do this after posting this message. If anyone has any suggestions then that would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Links to files.............

In this case it would be better to add \\ve-rh-srv-fap\universal$\cdf\role profiles\staffing as a virtual directory called files under the IIS server website, this way you could link to them as follows:

<map name="CareerMap">
  <area shape="rect" coords="154,142,324,190" alt="Sales Team Leader" href="files/Sales Team Leader.pdf" />
  <area shape="rect" coords="154,205,324,253" alt="Principal Consultant" href="files/Principal Consultant.pdf" />
  <area shape="rect" coords="154,268,324,316" alt="Senior Consultant" href="files/Senior Consultant.pdf" />
  <area shape="rect" coords="154,331,324,379" alt="Consultant" href="files/Consultant.pdf" />
  <area shape="rect" coords="154,394,324,442" alt="Junior Consultant" href="files/Junior Consultant.pdf" />
</map>

I've had great issues getting websites to show files the way your trying to do it.

hey,

So I asked a senior technician here and the problem was that my browser did not see our intranet as a page that is safe. So I added the url of our intranet to trusted sites and now everything is OK.

Thanks,
