Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 2, 2013 2:31 PM

I installed the code on several of my blogs.  Now when I'm logged in and editing my blog, I can add hyperlinked hotspots to any image.  I could do this with an HTML editor, but Taggstar makes it a much easier process.  


Any diagram or image you post on a blog could become quite an interactive roadmap.  Fun!

I haven't tried this yet, but it looks pretty good and easy to use.
