View Full Version : Using the Image Thumbnail with a Sliced Image

04-24-2008, 12:43 AM
1) Script Title: Image Thumbnail

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/thumbnail.htm

3) Describe problem: I'm building a page in Dreamweaver (CS3) where the main content on the page is a single graphic (b&w) sliced into 10 images. The html looks as follows:

<div id="mainContent"><img src="images/home_graphic.jpg" width="800" height="400" border="0" usemap="#Map" id="Image6" />
<map name="Map" id="Map">

Each of the 10 sliced images look like this:

<area shape="rect" coords="9,8,234,178" href="images/images/home_graphic_03.jpg" />

It basically is ignoring the Image Thumbnail code from within the area shape tag. I've used the Image Thumbnail script often but it doesn't seem to work here.

If anyone has conquered a similar issue, I'd appreciate the advice.

Can we please see a link to your page?
NOTE: You have to put the: rel="thumbnail" code if you didn't know that.

Yes, thank you, I did know that I had to put in the thumbnail code but it doesn't work. You can see the code at www.picturethatservices.com/test/. I'm sorry to bother you but have been trying to figure this out for most of the day.

I don't see where you did put that thumbnail code in. Can you please show me where you did?

I just added it back in. See line 57, the first line of the detailed map code. I tried it with and without the <a tag before the href tag. I get browser popups instead of the nice looking viewer ones. You'd think Adobe could make a nice looking frame an optional behavior. Thank you. PK
