Hi

I was needing help with placing links in different areas in a .png file to make the links clickable in wordpress.

The file is from photoshop and it is a price chart I created. I tried slicing and adding the links but for some reason it didnt turn out correctly...maybe i did something wrong.

I tried using powerpoint. I inserted the png file and then place the links using a text box but that still didnt work...

I'm using a plugin now but it does give me too many options on customization.

Do you guys or gals have any advice for this getting clickable links in a png file so it will be clickable in wordpress?

Thanks in advance

    I used Mappet to create the html code and css and then put the code on the page and the css at the end of my style sheet.. only problem so far is the css isnt liking it in a post, on my theme anyway, its only seems to be working in a page.

    Check out mappet and then if you need help putting it on your site let me know

    You can also use HTML map tags (I didn't use this with wordpress but maybe it works)

    and I think this may also work if you arrange your links under the photo with CSS

    If you do not have the basic ideas about programming then you will not be able to do or understand something like this.
