Image click maps and image adding
1 – Try using the normal editor for map tags. I see a mention over on the WP.org support forum that leads me to believe that TinyMCE may be stripping it out on you. Never tried using a map tag before within a post so I couldn’t tell you. I’ll drop a post in my support forum just to see if anyoen else has. Used a lot in headers. Never seen it in posts though.
2 – Don’t use the rich editor. I know that that’s a crappy response but so is TinyMCE. Your best bet is just to click on “Save and Continue Editing” every once in a while. Your post will reload on the bottom half of the page and you can go from there.
I see that the thread on the WP.org support forum has been closed and marked as resolved, but I am still having the same problem as the above user describes in #1 when trying to post image maps. I disabled the rich/WYSIWYG editor and switched to the normal editor as suggested, but it still strips out the map tags.
Since those answers, we’ve received a list of what tags are allowed. Maps aren’t on that list I’m afraid and, as you state, are stripped out.
Best bet would be to send in a Feedback and ask if they can be put on the allowed list. I’m guessing it’s for security reasons but I can’t think of any of the top of my head. Doesn’t mean they’re not out there though.
I’ve just encountered this problem. Even with MCE turned off, <map> is stripped. Is there NO way around this?
swein – I will find out.
