    A search for image maps in the wordpress.com Support doc or the forums doesn’t offer any help regarding using image maps in a wordpress.com blog: Search Results for image map « Support — WordPress.com

    The area tag, needed for image maps is listed under allowed HTML codes for wordpress.com.

    WordPress.com allows the following HTML code in your posts, pages, and widgets:
    
    address, a, abbr, acronym, area, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, cite, class, code, col, del, dd, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, img, ins, kbd, li, map, ol, p, pre, q, s, span, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, tr, tt, ul, var

    Image maps are handy when it comes to providing links within an image itself.

    If you still don’t get it, maybe seeing an example will help.

    This link contains defiinitions of image maps, how you can create your own image map and also an example of a working image map in a wordpress.com blog:

    How to add image maps in a wordpress.com blog

    Enjoy!

    psst: Image maps seem to be new around wordpress.com. When I (or other users) tried image maps years ago, wordpress.com didn’t accept the needed codes – a search for image maps in the forums reveals that.

    No, image map has been available for at least a couple of years.
    Here is an online site to easily make one:

    (works great, easy to use)

    Hi tess,

    Nice to see you here! :)
    I did say I tried it years ago – I am on wordpress.com since 2007. Maybe I tried it before a couple of years (I don’t remember, so I didn’t put the exact date).

    Hopefully the Support Doc will update the documentation so that its availability for wordpress.com is known to us more easily.

    I like to use kwout | A brilliant way to quote for my image maps.

    thanks for the link you provided.
