ImageMap Navigation

Would anyone be opposed to updating the main page's large image with each kingdom's heraldry to be click-thru navigatable? There is an easy tool to create the code here: [1]. I'm willing to create the code but an administrator would have to add it. I think it'd be a nice addition. Hooper 10:32, 10 October 2011 (EDT)

Okay, to make it work, replace
[[File:Amtgard-all-heraldry.png|400px]]
with the following:

Any slight misspellings that cause bad links can be fixed like normal by correcting the above Wikilinks. Additionally, I am not familiar with all of the official full names of the kingdoms (i.e. Empire of versus Kingdom of versus The Kingdom of versus Kingdom of the, etc.) so the rollover text can be corrected if need be as well. May have to tweak it to get the same 400 px as well. Hooper 20:41, 10 October 2011 (EDT)

Can't seem to get it to lay right. I have tried adding brackets to a few places, and I can make the image show, but the roll over text appears as one giant block, I must be doing something wrong. To that end, I'm going to unlock the front page temporarily so that you can apply the code properly. Let me know when you are ready, Mister Hooper. --Linden 21:44, 10 October 2011 (EDT)
Not a problem. If you see this message before midnight central tonight, I'm online. I'll try to catch you on facebook. If not, I'll try tomorrow. I've messed with imagemap a lot on another wiki so I've gotten good at tweaking it. Hooper 23:52, 10 October 2011 (EDT) Actually, ignore all that. I looked at the diffs and I can see the problem. Simply copying the above should work fine, possible with pixel size tweaking. However, first, ImageMap the extension actually has to be activated. So depending on who has access, it may not be possible. Simple to add the extension, and I personally think it's a great tool (for reference, you can see it in user here).

Roger is the guts and bones owner. He is not usually opposed to plug-ins, I'll run it by him. =)--Linden 07:50, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
According to a post (by whom I assume is Roger) on E-Sam, the ImageMap extension should work now. Any chance we can try this out?   Takaffi   talk    contribs    email   23:46, 22 December 2011 (EST)
Got it done, and it works like a dream. Thanks! --Linden 14:31, 26 December 2011 (EST)
Hey, Alona just updated the heraldry image, so we need to update the imagemap code as its not right now. Here is the new code, could an admin change the old to this? Thanks!

Although, please note - when I attempted to alter the image being used on the sandbox main page redesign, I got an odd error that said that no such image existed. But it clearly does, as its currently on the main page and it even loaded properly on the offsite imagemap code generator I use. Odd.   Takaffi   talk    contribs    email   21:00, 28 January 2012 (EST)

Should change the wording from "Clan" to "Gathering of the Clans." - Glen
