I am not keen. Today I was updating the hyperlinks on a map. It happened that I had set View > Show/Hide > Hyperlinks to off. I was merrily dragging links from my Cabre web site on to a map that already had all the topics I wanted. It was going to be a visual index on the web site. Halfway through the process I realised my web page names were causing some problems. So I changed them and redragged the links to the map.
After posting the clickable web export of the map into the web page I tested it and found it did not work. I had already been scratching my head a lot today about various web site issues and this one seemed to be an unecessary problem. I have created hundreds of clickable image maps in the last decade and they normally work.
When I looked at the image map html code more closely I saw the problem. The URLs were pointing at a local network URL http://192.168.1.77 etc. Where did that come from? I went back to the map and set View > Show/Hide > Hyperlinks to on. No Cabre favicons only a figure of 8 link! The penny dropped multiple hyperlinks per topic. The local URLs were from when I tested the site on my local PC. They were followed by all the URLs I had subsequently dropped on the topic. The first URL in the list is used by the web export.
This disrupts my long standing and very effective way of working. Please Mindjet can I have switch in the Options of the next service pack to turn this feature off?
On a more general note I don’t get having multiple links per topic. How do you know what they are without their page title or your topic text? Some web sites uses numerical page names which have no hint of the content and many are longer than you will be able to see on the Manage Hyperlinks screen even when you mouse over.
I know there are many MindManager users who have been begging for this feature for years. What do you think?
