Purpose of the mod
This mod was designed to display a different message for image maps that are not photos.
This mod applies to TNG 7.0 and above.
Ken Roy developed this mod.
This mod displays a different message if the image map is not for a photo, since clicking on the image may not display a person page.
- Download the appropriate distribution for your TNG version from the download links in the status area in the upper right.
- Extract the media-5_image_map_msg.zip to your admin/mod_folder (V7) or mods (v8).
- Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the media-5_image_map_msg.cfg.
- Edit the mediatypes selected to display alternate message if the media record contains an image map
Note that the media-5_image_map_message_v1.0.cfg file is part of a series of media display mods where the n in media-n designates the install order of the mods. If you use any of the other mods, they must be installed before this mod.
Note that config file only includes the English language changes, so if you support multiple languages you will need to modify the config file to add the custom text for those other languages.
You will need to make adjustments to the the $mediatypeID for the media collections where you are using image maps which are not photos where you create a link to the person.

The following variable should be added to your English/cust_text.php
$text['mediamytext'] = "<strong>Note:</strong> Move your mouse pointer over the image to show additional information.";
The following variable should be added to your French/cust_text.php
$text['mediamytext'] = "<strong>Notez:</strong> Déplacez votre pointeur de souris au-dessus de l'image pour exposer d'autres informations.";
Edit Mediatypes Used
V8.1.1 now allows editing the mediatypes that will display an alternate message when an Image Map is present for the image. The default mediatypes provided by the mod are:
You can used the Mod Manager Edit capability to change the mediatype. You can blank out or erase the any of the mediatypes to eliminate it being part of the check for the alternate image map message when the media record in that collection contains an image map.
Visualization of this mod
Without this mod, the following message is displayed when the media record contains an image map as shown in the image on the right. This message is appropriate for group photos that contain an image map where the area links to a person in your genealogy database.
It may not be appropriate for image maps related to census, military service ribbons, or historical maps, where the Tooltip Mod allows displaying different information.
With Mod Installed
With the Image Map Message mod installed, an alternate image map message is displayed as shown for the historical map image on the right.
You can see the different message displayed for the image map on my Uncle Bern's Military Ribbons media record, which displays the messages as "Move your mouse pointer over the image to show additional information".
