What's this extension about?¶
The Imagemap Wizard extension provides an easy and well integrated way to create imagemaps within TYPO3.
What's delivered with this extension?¶
After you installed the Imagemap Wizard extension you'll find a new "imagemap" content element with a rich, modern, jQuery driven user interface which provides the necessary options to create HTML imagemaps within seconds. It has full support for localization, versioning, workspaces, flexforms, typolink extensions (e.g. the linkhandler) and the TYPO3 reference index. It is integrated into the regular content element creation workflow like every other content element and due to a XCLASS free integration it's also very upgrade-friendly and has only few dependencies on the underlying TYPO3 (currently it's running stable within all TYPO3 versions between 3.8.1 to 4.5).
Besides all the nice basic things one of the main features is the fact that the imagemap is created on the actual preprocessed frontend-image, no matter what kind of additional image-filter, watermark or other processing is made within the frontend the wizard renders it exactly like this (within the backend) so that the imagemap coordinates can be created 100% accurate.
Due to the fact that it was developed as a wizard script - comparable to the "colorpicker wizard" - it can be used within any other extension for any TCA or flexform field.
Who can contribute?¶
Feel free to send feedback, patches or join the team - the current TER release 0.5.7 is considered to run stable. Nevertheless there's still some work left towards the version 1.0 and there are already tons of ideas for 2.0 and beyond ;)
