Map Area

Hi, Wonder if someone could help please.

Here’s a WIP version of my monthly newsletter:-

http://www.provision-cctv.com/enews/feb12e-news.html

After being a little disappointed with the way the email displays I’ve change the set up to one big table.

Silly question but the top graphic has three Map Areas identified as Web, Datasheets and Catalogue.

Two work fine but the first one shows as a link in Freeway but not is a browser. I’ve look at the code and can only spot one reference to Map on line 56 but not a link that i was hoping to see.

Any advice?

Many thanks.

Joe.

Hi Joe,

I’m not sure what’s causing the problem but a short term solution could be to use an invisible graphic item instead of a map area.

Hope this helps,

Joe

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the suggestion. So a simple graphic item placed over the area I require a link to be with no background. To do this I guess the item graphic would have to be a layered item? I have always avoided layers for HTML e-mails - would this cause a problem?

Again many thanks.

Yes, layers are a problem in many mail readers. Another approach would be to draw that empty graphic over your existing image, but disable the option to “Combine graphics”. This will force Freeway to draw an HTML table to hold the pieces of the photo, and to slice the photo into matching puzzle pieces. Then your link to that clear graphic would be a normal link wrapped around only the slice that shows the link.

Hi Walter,

Many thanks for the suggested fix. However still no joy with that approach - just get the big “X” and empty box etc. However as a fudge I have made the whole box a link to the web address and the working map area’s links to the required pages - seems to work - fingers crossed.

Again, many thanks.

Joe.
