Imagemaps in PHP ?!

Postby dangr142 » Wed Jan 08, 2003 2:43 pm

Is there any function in PHP that creates an imagemap ?

I have one big image and I want different smaller areas of that image to be clickable and link to different sites ?!? :)

Maybe using javascript and layers would work just fine.

It might be better to slice the image into smaller pieces and then link the pieces. That way it should work on any browser. But if you want to use image maps, try something like...

Code: Select all

<img src="bigImage.gif" usemap="#Map">
<map name="Map">
  <area shape="rect" coords="-1,0,62,17" href="page1.php">
  <area shape="rect" coords="64,1,234,19" href="page2.php">
</map>


Dreamweaver and many other site editing clients have this functionality built in.
