Image Maps

I have tried searching the SilverStripe site and forums for anything about Image Maps and couldn't find anything.

Their doesn't appear to be an option in the editor to create image maps. I also tried to enter one in via the html editor and that didn't work either. All my code (except the image tag) was gone after checking again.

So can anyone confirm that Image Maps are not possible on SilverStripe? If anyone has any alternatives that would work instead I would be keen to hear from you also.

There is no automated tool for creating image maps in Silverstripe. But why not create them with an external tool ?

I've just started looking at this and it would seem (although I must admit, I don't understand why) that you can't have image maps. Even when you've created them externally (as I have), the HTML can't be saved.

Anyone know if there's any way round this?

Tinymce strips out certain elements the way it is setup by default.

Edit cms/javascript/tinymce.template.js and change valid_elements to valid_elements : "*"

Great, that worked very nicely.

Cheers for the tip :-)
