    Cloned Hot Spots

    denno

      I have no idea if that was a helpful title....

      Here's what it's doing.

      www.sonnyandperley.com/bookingX.htm

       

      At the bottom there is a contact bar.  It is an Asset.  As written, it has a hotspot over the word "email" which links to a page in the website.  (Actually, as a test only, it is linked to the page you see it on:  bookingX.htm)

       

      However, the operative hotspots on that bar are apparently mirrored from the top half of the navbar below the logo at the top of the page.

       

      All I have to say about this is "HUH???"

       

      I've seen this happen before; don't remember if I managed to do anything about it.  What I consider to be "just one of those DW anomalies....."

       

       

      TIA

          If you looked at the code (assuming you understand it), you would be saying "Doh!" instead.

           

          Hotspots in image maps are defined by the <map> tag, which is separate from the image itself. The two are linked by the name attribute in the <map> tag, and the usemap attribute in the <img> tag.

           

          Both of your image maps have usemap="#Map" in the <img> tag, and you have two <map> tags that both use name="Map".

           

          Give the image map in your library item a different name, and the problem is solved.

            Many thanks.  The "Map" tag -- or anchor, or whatever it is --- is, or was, beyond my knowledge of HTML.
