I have asked you guysfor help on this same site before but now it is getting a little difficult, and maybe due to my own errors.

Here is the site and all I need are Hot links to the different pages, such as The Girls, The Boys, Kittens and the last is About Us, these will all lead to the appropriate links. Here is the site for you to see...and thanks I also hope this is the right place to post this if not please let me know where...:confused:

Ok this is how I would do it. It's a mouseover.

<a href="nameoflink.html" onMouseOver="on('link1')" onMouseOut="off()"><img name="link1" src="IMAGE1.gif" ALT="what you want to show on highlight" WIDTH="131" HEIGHT="51" BORDER="0"></a>

So all you have to do is put girls.html in the nameoflink.html if that is the page you want it to go to. and you put the picture image where it says image1.gif.

If this isnt what you wanted plz tell me.

you need a program to image map your image. This basically tells the browser when certain coordinates are moused over to link them to another page. You can do that or cut up your background image and link each section with a standard <a href> tag.

Here is a basic (free trialware) program you can downlaod to map an image: http://www.boutell.com/mapedit/download.html. You'll probably want the self extracting version for windows...

put this in your html document, if its the same directory of the picuture you dont need to edit anything but
alt="blah" and href="webpage.htm"

<img src="entrypageh.jpg" usemap="#entrypageh" border="0"><map name="entrypageh">
<area shape="rect" alt="blah" coords="60,259,180,311" href="webpage.htm" title="blah">
<area shape="rect" alt="blah" coords="320,318,498,370" href="webpage.htm" title="blah">
<area shape="rect" alt="blah" coords="618,262,749,311" href="webpage.htm" title="blah">
<area shape="rect" alt="blah" coords="292,536,515,589" href="webpage.htm" title="blah">
<area shape="default" nohref>

im pretty sure that will work fine, tell me otherwise :)
