Introduction

Design

HTML Map Manager 2 builds on a previous 1.5 native extension released by Christophe Demko, allowing you to create hotlink areas on images (clickable areas) and link to a Joomla! menu item. It also takes care of the code for hover, mousein/mouseout actions.

  • Get this

You can manually set up the hotlink areas, or import a .map file generated by graphics software.

Planned developments for 2013 include:

  • Adding a live image-map tool to allow users to select their 'hot spot' areas 'on the fly' within the back end of Joomla!
  • Adding the ability to automatically enable a hotspot at a given time/date

New features are also being discussed - let us know if you have any ideas!


What happened to support


Posted on 23 October 2014

Had a problem with this extension behaving erratically. Couldn't log in to raise a support ticket. Sent an email and didn't get a response.

Wasted my money, it seems.


Just what I needed


Posted on 26 August 2013

I'm not sure why, but having been building Joomla sites for a few years, this is the first time I wanted to use an image map.

Thinking that image maps are such a basic building block of web design I looked for options - and there are very few. I looked at a couple before selecting this extension. It does everything it says on the box and then some. Incredibly simple to use.

I did have some jQuery issues - I'm using a RocketTemplate theme and there were some conflicts - but the amazing support sorted things out in a friendly and speedy manner (thanks, Ruth!).

The site is bilingual English/Spanish - so I was a little worried about this - needn't have been - it was a single drop down click in Falang!

Shame there are only five stars....

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, it's always lovely to receive such positive feedback! Looking forward to seeing the finished site!

This extension far exceeded my expectations! I have over 60 links on a map image, they all work flawlessly and it is clean and professional looking. There are so many potential uses for this extension - it's an unbelievable bargain! Support is top-notch also - I'm using this extension with a responsive template and had a jquery conflict which Ruth helped me solve immediately. Thanks for a great extension!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review - we're excited at the potential as well, and we hope to be able to develop some of the ideas we're having over the coming months to continually improve the extension :)

I'm using this software and it does all what i wanted. It builds up a perfect map. Absolutly and highly recommendable.





But i've got a bit of a problem with the Internet Explorer, but here also the Support was very nice and we finaly fixed the problem.



All of All 5 Stars for this Extension

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, glad we were able to get to the bottom of the IE problems!

Html Map 2


Posted on 20 June 2013

I was asked to set up an image map of a geographical are for a non-profit. HTML Map 2 was very easy and powerful. Had one small issue that I contacted support about. I got it fixed before Ruth got back to me but she did get back fast and explained the problem I had. Nice work!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we really appreciate your kind words :)

I can't say enough good things about the software and Virya's support of it. I have used HTML map ever since its original version and agree with the others about its importance and utility. There is nothing else out there like this for ease of use and usefulness. The best part about their support is being able to deal with all the problems that go with Joomla upgrades, IE upgrades, and template upgrades. I tear my hair out with some other extensions, but HTML map2 support is quick, friendly, and spot-on. Best support I have ever had, from all support systems I have ever used.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words, it's always frustrating when problems pop up - especially conflicts with jQuery and the like - happy to help!

This is an absolute must to have when you would like to put links on complex images. I have used this quite a few times now. You can preserve your original artwork and put links all over it. Thanks for this component. Worth the small fee, and thanks for the instructions on how to get the image map coordinates :)

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we're always happy to feature sites using HTML Map in our new showcase, so do email us if you'd like us to feature your site!

I have used HTML Map and HTML Map2 on several sites and it really is powerful and adds functionality that can set your site apart. Like all extensions of this caliber, there are usually a few things to learn to make it work to its fullest potential. But it is completely worth the initial cost and learning. For a simple application it is plug-and-play. The tech support I received (several times for different projects) from Ruth at Virya Technologies has been second to none.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review Dwaine, and for using our software. We aim to provide a top notch support service to all our customers :)

Used the previous version of HTML map with great pleasure. This version for Joomla! 1.6/1.7 was just in time for me. Support from the developer was quick and helpfull. Even got a email a week after downloaded the extension; if installation was successful. Good aftersales. Thank you.

Owner's reply: Glad to hear how you found our services, and thank you very much for the review! Do let us know if you'd like to feature any of your sites in our showcase!

I have previously used the free extension developed by Christophe Demko while on Joomla 1.5.x. This time however I needed to create a html image map for a new project on Joomla 1.7, and therefore had to look elsewhere for the solution.



I tried a few different paths, and wasted 3.4 hours without success before I landed on this extension. After registering on the developers site and paying for the software through Paypal, I initially ran into a couple of small problems. A quick email to the developer followed by a impressive response, I was again on my way to success. I had created my images for use in my imagemap previously so I now had to simply upload these to the specific folder and within 10 minutes I had it all configured and working.



This is definitely an extension I will use for most of my projects going forward.



All the best to the developer. Keep up the excellent work.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and your confidence in HTML Map 2 - we hope we'll continue to provide lots of useful updates!

Google+ Authorship for Articles

The problem: Google needs me to make a reciprocal link to my Google+ profile on every page I author, so that my avatar appears in search listings and I am accredited as the author of that page. The solution: The Google+ Authorship Plugin is an adaptation of the original plugin from DeConf. It allows you to link up a contact on your site with their Google+ profile, and use that link to display a 'Follow on G+' link on each article. How does it work? In order to be associated as the author of an article which is present in the Google search results pages, you need to create a two-way link between your Google+ profile and your website. Firstly you add the website in your 'Contributes To' section on your Google+ profile, and then you need to have on every page you wish to be accredited as the author, a link to your profile which includes ?rel=author at the end. This creates the chain, and approves you as the author. What extensions does it support? At present this extension supports com_content, however there are plans to expand this. We also plan to provide options - for example, to show a Google+ icon, to customise the text used, and to hide the link all together and provide it silently.

This plugin resolves an ongoing issue which search engines are becoming much more fussy about - duplicated content. Back in 2009 Google told people how to specify that content which was exactly the same or very similar, but was linked to or appeared in different places on your website, was to be treated as a duplicate and tagged as 'canonical'. While many popular SEF systems manage canonical URL's, this plugin should be useful if you don't use them - or if their canonical management is not working for you.

This plugin adds the schema.org markup for user interactions including Facebook likes Twitter tweets Google +1's Social icons don't even need to be visible, as it checks against the services whether the URL has been shared, and provides this information as microdata on the page (which is not visible to your visitors). This information is then made available via microdata in a way which is not visible to your visitors, but is accessible to search engines.
