In addition to using Image Map text for your rollovers in Image Sets, you can use an info panel to add larger quantities of rollover text, including links. You can also manage the InfoPanel by using timed caching and scheduling content updates.
You can manage your InfoPanel setup and data using the following features in Dynamic Media Classic:
You can select one of three preset response templates for displaying text in an Info Panel. These preset response templates determine how your information is presented in the Info Panel: how many columns and rows, typeface size, font, and so on. You can select a preset response template or create one of your own.
To set up a response template:
Double-click your Image Set to open it in Detail View.
Click InfoPanel Setup.
In the Response Template drop-down list, do one of the following:
(Optional) In the Default Response box, type the text that you want to appear if Dynamic Media Classic encounters an error in retrieving information for an image map. For example, if the system receives a company name and an Image Set name, but no rollover identifier, this message appears for the user.
In the Response TTL text field, enter the number of hours that you want to wait before caching the data.
Click Upload to upload info panel content, based on the rollover_key values, to s7info.
In the S7Info Upload dialog box, browse to the file that you want to use, and then click Upload.
Supported file formats are TAB-delimited files with UTF-16 encoding and CSV files with ASCII encoding. For CSV files, non-ASCII characters must be HTML encoded.
In the InfoPanel Setup panel, click Publish.
You can use a CSV (Comma-Separated Value) file with ASCII encoding (non-ASCII character must be HTML encoded) or a tab-delimited file for the source text for an info panel for an Image Set. Tab-delimited files must use UTF-16 (Unicode) encoding. You import the different file types using different methods.
When formatting source content, keep in mind the following guidelines:
Double-click the Image Set to open it in Detail View.
Click InfoPanel Datafeed.
In the Externally hosted CSV file location (HTTP) text field, enter the URL to the CSV file.
(Optional) In the Schedule Update fields, specify a time to update the content, and then click Add.
You can select multiple times for updating. Each update time appears in the Update Times text box. To remove a scheduled time, select it, and then click Delete.
(Optional) Click Run Update to immediately update the content.
