Image maps

I wanted to do a clickable area on an image to show simply that "click on login it brings you to this page" but when i did the html in the html editor it doesn't seem to make the coordinates on the image clickable. I used the "big picture" structure block if that helps. Is it even possible to have clickable image maps in odoo? Im using the default version when creating a new account

Thanks very much.

You don't need the HTML editor for that purpose. Just place an image somewhere, save, enter "Edit" mode again, mark the corresponding imageand add a link to it using the top editor menu:

Hi thanks. Sorry my comment isn't clear as i was addled with the cold at the time. What i specifically mean is something like 

<img src="planets.gif" width="145" height="126" alt="Planets" usemap="#planetmap">

<map name="planetmap">

<area shape="rect" coords="0,0,82,126" href="sun.htm" alt="Sun">

<area shape="circle" coords="90,58,3" href="mercur.htm" alt="Mercury">

<area shape="circle" coords="124,58,8" href="venus.htm" alt="Venus">


When i tried something like the above it doesn't seem to work on odoo, works fine in normal html environment though. Im just using odoo for a mockup so its basically to have a front login button that takes you to news and a few other clickable areas on images.


I've the same problem, were you able to solve it?
