Hi. I would like to link hotspots to link.

Currently with the plugins it shows the ability to link to an article or to k2 etc.

I would like to paste a custom link in there and link to that.

Extending the functionality of hotspots.

Anyone have any ideas?

This is a riot. I've had Hotspots for about 12 hours (up all night building maps) and I had 1 feature request that will take Hotspots of the deep end for COOLNESS! Add in url's as an option for Hotspots to link to.

Here's what I want to do on my site with hotspots...
Link to Joomla contact and weblink
Link to a Jomsocial Event
Link to a Jomsocial Group
Link to Kunena Forum
Link to a Fabrik page (I have a Fabrik app that keeps track of mountain bike trails and other items), yes, fabrik has it's own mapping, but Hotspots is why better at the map part and if I could link a hotspot to the Fabrik item via the url that would be killer).

I could see countless Joomla components that could now be automagically Hotspot enabled if you could simply reference the URL of the component in a hotspot to pull up a specific item in a component.

Hotspots as it sits is WAY COOL and adding in URL support would be AWESOME!

PS. Sign me up for the Beta test if you decide to implement this.

That is awesome! If you share the code I can add it to the next release.
