Folks, I have been in IT for many years, but completely new to javascripting and ajax etc. I develop web sites and the php, html coding etc is no issue, its just that I have never needed to do any javascript coding and therefore have not used it at all.
Picking it up should present little problem, but as of this moment, I am a complete tyro, and I need to get moving on this requirement ASAP.

I have a requirement which I haver never before needed to address.

I would be grateful for some pointers to resources (I have searched and searched..... ) which I could use to develop the functionality I need.

After that rambling intro, here is the actual issue.....

I need to have a variety of areas on a single picture on the website, each of which if clicked on, will go to a different article.

Rather than try to explain, here is a link which does a similar thing, although this one is in Flash (which I also don't know): http://www.comcare.gov.au/virtual_workplaces/virtual_office/reception

I need to do pretty much the same thing, though with a different picture and words of course.

The website will be a Joomla based site.

I hope I have gived enough information, and indeed, hope that I have posted to the right area!

Any assistance or thoughts at all would be greatly appreciated.

regards to all,
Mike

Wonderful!!!!

Philip, thank you so much for your reply.

I had googled everything except the term "image map".

This pointed me in a good direction. I think I will be able to get this done.

Still open to all suggestions though :-) :-) :-) , considering my kindergarden level of knowledge on this subject.

Thanks yet again
