Image Map for Email?
Hi, I'm new to web design and am making my own pages in Dreamweaver. I am trying to get a mapped image linked to my email. Here is my contact page so far...
and here is the mapped image code...
<map name="Email" id="Email">
<area shape="rect" coords="496,4,795,248" href="#mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Mail from Our Site" target="_top" alt="link to email" />
I do not think it's working right...so any help would be appreciated.
You have to use the script mailto: before an email hyperlink so
you can add more too such as
?subject="this is an email"
mailto:email@example.com?subject="this is an email"
good luck on it
Be aware of the possibility of extra spam if you use a link for your mail. Robots collecting mail address from html and this way you have to put your email address in the html....
Could I ask why the use of a black background? There are people who can't read white text on black backgrounds..... Like me. It's not that I can't read it but after a minute or so I start to have a headache, really true.
Here's an interesting article about it....
A couple good points to consider. I will get back into my basic web work and work on my email issue as well as addressing the spam issue.
Very interesting points on using "BLACK" backgrounds for web sites. When planning this, I wanted to pick a color that wasn't too hard on the eyes and helped give my graphics a punch. I guess I was way off. I am not going to use a lot of copy or pages but after reading this I'm going back to the drawing board and revisiting my color pallet.
You should definitely consider changing the color pallet. I find it very hard to stay on a page that has black background. It really hurts the eyes and involuntarily we may just not like the page for no specific reason and close it.
If you're creating a campaign using MailChimp's Campaign Builder and you'd like to add an image map to your content, you'll need to add the code directly to the source of the campaign..

Image maps are created using a bit of HTML code to add multiple links to a single image, rather than breaking an image into separate files. This type of code would need to be created outside of MailChimp then copied into your campaign using the steps below.
