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!
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....
Thank you for your review, it's always lovely to receive such positive feedback! Looking forward to seeing the finished site!
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 :)
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
Thank you for your review, glad we were able to get to the bottom of the IE problems!

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