Some Help Needed Please!!

by Virtual Tour Guy » Wed Nov 21, 2012 6:26 pm

Guys, I've noted a link below to a small example of a tour I'm creating for a Client.

http://www.view360online.co.uk/Client/Bute%20House%20Test/Bute.html

As the pano pans, you will see an active hotspot within one of the paintings. When clicked this links to an enlarged image and text information of the painting itself. The Client also wants an active link from that enlarged still image, direct to a specific website, with instructions on the image saying "Click to visit Website". He is quite specific about this and doesn't want 2 hotspots on the virtual tour image e.g. one to Enlarge and the other to the Website. Is this achievable?

I am not well versed in HTML or XML so the simpler solution the better. Any help much appreciated. Many thanks, John

This is weird. The link works when I post it but when I've come out of the Forum and log back in it comes up as Error 404.

If you hover over it, the URL appears at the bottom corner of the your screen. I'd really appreciate if anyone can help.

I've noted the link again just in case....

Hi...

Your issue is probably a the way you have written your url address. If you have spaces a %20 by default is created to fill in the spaces since you cannot have spaces, so therefore it can lead to the url not working and showing a 404 error message..

......view360online.co.uk/Client/Bute%20House%20Test/Bute.html

Just rename your url to this.. and re-upload your main html page and it should work.. When you open the above locally it will work..

I am guessing this is what you need.. Just add this code to yours where you want to put the url...

<a href="your-url" title="This will be the mouse over text" target="_blank">This will be the visible text</a>

Also, as I said before.. you need to close up the gaps on your url..
