    Hot Spot Problems

    camelbreath Level 1
      http://www.jdcdemo.com/scottsys7/index.html

      On this page, I have made the Lennox logo a hotspot. I went to the web, copied the complete url and pasted it into the link section in the dialog box. When I click on the link, the net result is the link apparently pointing to itself on the page. Where have I gone wrong?
      Thanks,
      Joe

          well, your link is pointing to this:
          http://www.jdcdemo.com/scottsys7/index.html#http://www.lennox.com/

          my guess is that you pasted the link in after the # that DW
          automatically puts in there when you create a hotspot. so just delete
          the entire url you have in there now and re-paste the correct one. and
          in the future, make sure you delete that # before you paste in a url for
          a hotspot link.

            You munged the process somehow when you pasted the link.

            Change this -

            href="# http://www.lennox.com/" alt="Lennx Home Page" />

            to this -

            href=" http://www.lennox.com/" alt="Lennox Home Page" />

            (note the spelling change for "Lennox")

              Courtney and Murray:
              That nailed it. Thanks for the help. I am curious as to why there is a booby-trap, personified as the dreaded # insertion. If it causes a problem, why in the *&^%%!#$#**!! is it a part of the program, pray tell?
              Thanks again for your help,
              Joe

                It's not a part of the program. It's an operator error.

                  Murray, you are a well-spring of information. Please tell me how I am invoking the #. I am following the procedure of drawing the hot spot and the # shows up. At least I think I am.
                  Thanks again,

                    Don't know. Give me the exact set of steps you are using to reach this
                    point, please.

                      Does DW add it automatically so that you can quickly set up a series of
                      hotspots, later adding the links?

                      "Camel", just FYI, when pasting a link into any link field in Dreamweaver,
                      you have to be careful anyway, because it's also easy to accidentally leave
                      an empty space at the end of the URL, which will make the URL wrong as well.
                      So it's not something that requires some care anyway. Still a lot easier
                      than typing all that code yourself. :-)

                        Yes. I can see the mistake that was made was to merely click in the Link
                        field rather than to select all in the link field before pasting in the
                        link.
