I'd like to embed a cmap in a moinmoin wiki page. I generated the cmap using dia.

I then copy pasted the generated html code, modified it to point to the png image I attached to the wiki. However when saving the whole map section disappears from the code.

Does anyone has a pointer for me? Has someone already managed to use a cmap in MoinMoin?

PS: not sure it's the correct forum for asking this, don't hesitate to point me somewhere else if not.

The best place for questions like this is probably an application-specific support channel, have a look here (there's the MoinMoin project's chatroom and a mailing list). – sr_ Oct 8 '12 at 13:45
OK thanks. Sorry about that, I asked the question on their chatroom, thanks for the links. – Ugo Oct 8 '12 at 14:29

There's no use in modifying the html code in the GUI editor: when saving it it is then translated into MoinMoin syntax. The html code is accessible only for the GUI to be a wysiwyg. There's no existing clickable image in MoinMoin.

Maybe this could be useful... their "VisualSiteMap" is a cmap, after all... (so you might need your own custom plugin that directly writes the html via request.write(...), but I'm guessing wildly here.) – sr_ Oct 8 '12 at 14:48
