image map w/ rollover popup images?

Postby footprintzinthesand » Tue Nov 28, 2006 12:16 pm

Is it even possible to have an image map that you can move the mouse over, and have an image pop up for each different link--- IN HTML?
Tried to find info, to no avail... :-(

I know there is a way to do that in Fireworks but I never messed with it

Thanks anyway... :-)

I ended up just cutting it into pieces, placing the images side by side so that it appears uncut, and doing the individual roll-over thing...

yes, there are ways to do it, but image maps are generally considered to be clunky.

What you did by slicing up the image is an easier (and generally considered, better) way of handling it.

Yeah, I already know how to build an image map (with the assistance of a website)... I just couldn't find shit about how to, when hovering over it with the mouse pointer, get it to popup a new image... in html...
This is for myspace, I must add. No javascript unless you hack it somehow (which I have no clue how)... Some css will work in it, some won't, so I didn't really wanna mess with any css that appeared too complicated for myspace to handle. Myspace pretty much fucking sucks...
I just cut the image into pieces though, did some hover css code stuff, and i'll leave it at that, lol... :-) Thanks though...

i seem to recall a way (re: browser hack) to import and load javascript from a css file.

you could probably find the details on it with a quick google search.

speaking of which, have you checked flash 9 beta for linux?

it's nice, and seems to work OK on firefox 1.5.x.

testing it on firefox 2.0 right now...
