Is it possible to add a Hotspot Category map to an Article similar to the way that the Content Hotspots plugin works? I have tried adding the following within the joomla article:
{hotspots category=10}
{hotspotscategory ID=10}
{hotspots category=categoryname}
{hotspotscategory 10}
{hotspotscategory categoryname}

None of these work. Is something like this possible?

No, something like this is not possible. There is a workaround though. You could use the Hotspotsanywhere plugin and specify the hash /lat/lng/z/cats/1;2;3

You could also create a menu link to each category and then use modules to add your content above and below the map. (we have module positions for this). I actually prefer this method.

Daniel

Thanks Daniel,

I ended up using another free plugin called Articles Anywhere from NoNumber. This allowed me to put my article content into a module by creating a custom html module containing:
{article some-article}{text}{/article}

I then created a menu item linking to each Hotspots category. After this I put my module in the positions above or below the Hotspots map using my template positions.

Hotspots is a great component and saved me so much time.

Thank you. :)

I think that Articles Anywhere is the wrong approach here. ARticles anywhere was the reason why I've created Hotspots anywhere... (there is a discussion about this on the forum)
