The HotSpot works fine on the backend preview but not showing in the frontend?

Please try to wrap the shortcode with raw, like:

Some theme will add blank <p></p> to the content of the shortcode, this break the plugin. The raw tag will prevent it to add the unnecessary blank p tags.

See a review from Business Bluebird, and more review from the buyers:

“The perfect and straightforward image map plugin for WordPress! Support is also exemplary and efficient. Stop looking, this possibly is the only image map you’ll ever need.”


“Great plugin and I have been looking for something like this for years.
Thanks, 100% satisfied.”


“Great plugin! Just what I needed. Way better than any other image maps.”


“Congratulations on your fast respond to requests, great job!
I recommend this plug-in .”


“I can’t tell you how excited I am about this software. I have struggled for nearly a year to get something that worked. No eternal hosting of photographs, no complicated code. And if I want to add another hotspot later it’s all there. My previous software I had to rebuilt the whole image map just to make a simple correction. – OK so a bit of HTML but nothing that can’t be cut and pasted from the text part of the site. Worth every penny!”


“This is an awesome plugin. The intuitive GUI allows you to edit the position of the hotspots in real time. HTML can be input directly into each hotspot for professional looking pop-ups with no back-end work. By using shortcodes to place the formatted image there are no conflicts with design elements. This is one of my favorite plugins!”


And more happy users.
