Hi, I'm embedding a map of a European tour into an existing blog on Blogspot. Where I have booked events such as an opera in Italy, i wanted to show this by having a hyperlink in the note box that displays when you hover over the destination. The link text shows but you are not able to click through to the link. Is it possible to embed links to websites through the map, or is there another way to achieve this? Thanks

Yes, despite this not being immediately apparent or made easy, you can insert links into the notes.

You have to mark it up in the same way it's done in the forums here. The following code is an example:

[[http://www.travellerspoint.com|Travellerspoint]]

results in: Travellerspoint

Two opening brackets, followed by the link (including http://), followed by pipe symbol, followed by anchor text followed by two closing brackets.

The pipe symbol and anchor text are optional. You can also just wrap your link in double square brackets and it will create a link with the link itself as the anchor text.
