HTML Map Manager 2 builds on a previous 1.5 native extension released by Christophe Demko, allowing you to create hotlink areas on images (clickable areas) and link to a Joomla! menu item. It also takes care of the code for hover, mousein/mouseout actions.
You can manually set up the hotlink areas, or import a .map file generated by graphics software.
Planned developments for 2013 include:
* Adding a live image-map tool to allow users to select their ‘hot spot’ areas ‘on the fly’ within the back end of Joomla!
* Adding the ability to automatically enable a hotspot at a given time/date
New features are also being discussed, and new features will be added to https://www.pivotaltracker.com/projects/735135#
