Hi,
I have a page with a map and I want to have the areas clickable.
I made the image map details in dreamweaver and copied the HTML into my page.
but it doesn't seem to work?

You forget the #map

replace

<img width="975" height="758" alt="South Africa Map" src="/images/newmap.png">

with

<img width="975" height="758" alt="South Africa Map" src="/images/newmap.png" usemap="#Map" >

It seems like joomla strips that out?
I do paste it, but when I go view the source after publishing it it's gone

(i) I believe that you are using Tiny MCE Editor. Open the plugin Editor - TinyMCE for edit in the Plugin Manager (Extensions -> Plugin Manager) and set the parameters as follows:

(a) Functionality to Extended

(b) Code cleanup on save to Never or Front Only


(ii) Also, review the document http://docs.joomla.org/Why_does_some_HTML_get_removed_from_articles_in_version_1.5.8%3F that would be useful.


(iii) You could also set the editor as No Editor in the Global Configurations and edit the article.
