  1. Dude, you know what ? If you had a flattr-button and I could load my flattr account by direct bank transfer, I would flattr you now. Fucking great tutorial; helped me a lot without causing any problems in understanding you !

  2. Thanks a lot! That’s great !
    Just a question : when i added the image map on my WordPress page, when clicking on the image it always opens in a NEW window…(I already unchecked the “open in a new window” on the image options on WP ).
    Any idea ? Thanks and sorry for my bad english…

  3. Great tutorial! Worked straight away and it was easy to follow 🙂 Everyone said it would be difficult and need coding and plugins. I am pleased that it didn’t come to that.

  4. Great job on this! You sounded like the voice of Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragons. (It’s a good thing!)
