can i assign the forward to a friend to an image, not just live text?

Hi Erin,

Definitely. Anything you can link you can add those tags to. Just put <forwardtoafriend></forwardtoafriend> in place of your <a href=""></a> around the image. So <forwardtofriend><img src="image" border="0" width="" height="" alt=""></forwardtoafriend>

What about adding <forwardtoafriend> to an image map within an image (that has several image maps)?

Thanks :)

you'd best cut the image into slices and arrange via tables or similar.

imagemaps are weird - they're either handled by js or use serverside processing that depends on a client appending the x/y coords along with the request.

i realise this is a very old thread but it came up when I was searching for this idea of being able to use the variable placeholder links into an image map.

the answer, as it turns out, for those that haven't already figured it out is to use the plain text placeholder in the href of the map.

ie <map name="Map"><area shape="rect" coords="452,28,578,72" href="[forwardtoafriend]" alt="Tell a Friend"></map>

Hope this helps someone! :)
