    Problem creating hotspots in maps

    advaita1942
      In DW CS3, tried creating hotspots in a simple gif image as advised by the help. But got this message:

      "Making this change would require changing code that is locked by a template or translator. The change will be discarded."

      I'm not using a template and don't know what a translator is. What might be the problem?

          This is sometimes caused by a page that contains coding errors. Does the
          page validate when you go here and paste in the code?

            Thanks for the advice. There were indeed errors, mostly in included php code written for me a couple of years ago. I managed to get rid of all but two of these, which were a bit more intractable, but insignificant. But this did not get rid of the message in DW.

            So I created a new file with the image and used this to create the map, which I then pasted back to my main page. That worked OK.
