    just had a look at it. It says you can drag the map. I couldnt, I had to use the scroll bars.

    Also some of the 'blue dots' that are close together its a pain when you go over the area of one you dont want to look at and it pops up.

    I used IE8 on Win XP.

    EDIT: When zoomed in I could click and drag but still had to use scroll bars to move the page across to click and drag the next part of the school.

    Win 7 & Chrome.

    Looks very good, but I couldn't click and drag either.

    Typo - Link Corridor

    This is the link corridoe from the old 1929 part of the school, to the 1950's part including the Library

    Win 8 & Chrome.

    Couldn't click and drag, had to use the map in the top right to do so.

    Win 7 and Chrome, working, with drag when zoomed!

    And I want one, but I want one for free!

    Click and drag working fine once zoomed in here - mouseover blue dots pops up picture, but once I click on them I get no image and mouseover stops popping the photo up - Mountain Lion and Chrome.

    The mouse over blue dots appear to be clickable. If one is clicked it turns orange and after that no pictures pop up. Only way to restore blue dot functionality is to refresh the page.

    Also seems to happen sometimes without a click?

    O/S: Windows 7 Pro: 64 Bit and Chrome.

    Click and drag only begins to work when zoomed in at least by one click.

    However, even after zooming in, it doesn't let you click-and-drag down to the Sports Halls (only to the Refectory label) or across to the Cricket Pavillion.

    Firefox 16.02 & Chrome, OS X Mountain Lion

    Thanks guys, I'll change the blue dots so they only pop up when clicked, the trouble is there are lots of areas close together!

    I'm thinking more hotspots than this would be messy?

    Its not expensive, there's a 50% discount for schools so something like $99 (depends on how many hotspots you want)

    I may need to change the wording on the instructions as you all correctly point out you can only drag when zoomes in...

    thanks for all your comments as I'd never be able to test in in so many different situations....
    I've done one or two now:
