A free HTML5 based content type allowing creatives to add hotspots to images. Hotspots may reveal texts, images and videos when clicked. All you need to create this content type is H5P.com or the H5P plugin in publishing systems like Canvas, Brightspace, Blackboard, Moodle and WordPress.
Would you like to create content like this on your own?Get started
Register on H5P.com to start creating H5P Interactive content. Your content can be accessed via direct link, embeded, or inserted into any learning management system that supports LTI integration.
Image hotspots makes it possible to create an image with interactive hotspots. When the user presses a hotspot, a popup containing a header and text or video is displayed. Using the H5P editor, you may add as many hotspots as you like. The following is configurable:
- The number of hotspots
- The placement of each hotspot, and the associated popup content
- The color of the hotspot

Hi Salma,To provide a best
To provide a best possible experience for new users and to ensure that people use H5P.org only for trying out H5P (we've had more traffic than our server can handle lately, ref also the warnings when you create content, embed content and view the content) we are experimenting with which content types should be available here.
Check the getting started page for information on how you can use all the content types and use H5P for real. We unfortunately are not able to provide free hosting, only free software :) Hopefully you'll consider supporting the H5P Core Team by using H5P.com.

World map with small hotpots
I would like to use h5p for world map with hotpots showing information about national representative (I have a lot). I made a test but the size of the pot is big for me. So is it possible to reduce the size of the hotspots?
Thanks in advance

size of hotspot image
Hi there -
I want to use an image on a page with a hotspot that triggers a video. The h5p works perfectly with one issue. The background image is sized using the dimensions of the video, rather than being the default size of my image. Is there a way to get around that so the background and video can maintain their original sizes? Or should I perhaps use another content type?
Thu, 11/19/2015 - 14:52
I'm sorry, I didn't understand that one. By clicking on raspberries on the top of the page here I see a video, but the video has a different size than the background image?
Maybe you could provide a link?
Thu, 11/19/2015 - 17:06
size of hotspot image
I don't have any published piece yet. What I'm trying to do is this:
image on the page shows at about 150 x 150. When the user clicks the hotspot, the video opens at its native dimensions of 640 x 320. As it exists, when I create the object, it resizes my base image.
Fri, 11/20/2015 - 11:09
Ok, so the video is bigger

Is this new version available?
My library has an interactive map http://library2.up.edu/floormap/floormap_mainfloor.html which lets people view images and text as they mouse over different areas. I noticed that H5P allows video, text, OR image to appear in the pop-up triggered by selecting a hotspot, and you have said that in the next version it will be possible to combine text and image. Is that next version available?
Mon, 08/13/2018 - 06:03
Hi Heidi,Yes, you can now use
Yes, you can now use videos as the pop-ups.
Mon, 08/13/2018 - 18:41
I'm more interested in combining text and image
Thanks for your reply, but I wasn't interested in videos as the pop-ups; I want to be able to combine images and text, e.g. a picture with a caption, and preferably with the ability to include hyperlinks in the caption. Is that possible?
Tue, 08/14/2018 - 04:53
Hi Heidi,Sorry I think I got
Sorry I think I got confused there. Anyway this is not possible as of the moment. I think we did not push through with the plan of having a combined image-text as pop-up. Although I think this is a very good idea and a post in the Feature Request forum can help make this happen. In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:
It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learners will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”
If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps
Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type
Make sure you post the feature in the Feature Request forum.

New Feature Request
Love H5P and what you have done so far. We have recently been playing with the image hotspot and were wondering if we could submit some requests for new features. Below is a list:
These are just a couple of things we have thought of while using this.
Again love your work.

Thanks for your suggestions. You should add the feature requests to https://github.com/h5p/h5p-image-hotspots/issues.

Hello, i have installed Image Hotspots on my site! I have the outcome that i wanted and i am very pleased with that, thank you for your work! I have only one question, is there a way to define the dimensions of the image when adding a content item: image ? Or a way to use the text content item and use html tags, so i can upload my image and define its dimensions this way ? - I am using drupal by the way -
Waiting for your answer, thank you for your work again!
Mon, 09/05/2016 - 09:58
Hi, Currently, that is not
Currently, that is not supported. the current implementation will use as much space for the image as possible. Could I ask you why you need this functionality? E.g does the images get too small or too big?
Mon, 09/05/2016 - 15:59
Hello, Thanks for your reply.
Thanks for your reply. I want to make a "image map" For example i have an image and i want when the user clicks on a section the pop-up to display some information and an image right next to the text. I know that i can add an image type and then and a text type above but the image was way too big. Anyway i edited the code and i changed it from 100% width and height to what i want and now it fits my standards. But think about adding this option maybe in the future, I think many people would like that :)

Users and zoom?
- Is it possible for many users to ad hotspots? (and not only admins)
- Is it possible for the users to zoom at the image and ad hot-spots there?
Wed, 09/07/2016 - 10:15
1) Currently, only the author
1) Currently, only the author of the content may add hotspots. You should be able to create your own hotspots content without being an admin.
2) I see how this could be beneficial but currently, this isn't possible.

full width element
Hello and thank you for this great plugin
I have a problem with it,i can't use it in full width style,i changed width attributes to 100% but there was no change in style
I'm using image hotspot module on wordpress.please help me with it.thanks
Thu, 12/01/2016 - 09:22
Hi,H5Ps are using 100% width
H5Ps are using 100% width by default, so my best guess is that your theme is setting some constraints on the width. If your Image Hotspot is publicly available, we could have a look :)

Hi,This is a really out of
This is a really out of scope for this forum, but I'll make an exception (since I'm such a nice guy :). So: you will probably have to change or override the CSS on this page so .container uses 100% width and having padding:0 for left and right.

Alter the way the hotspots are intereacted with
I'm wondering if there is any way to alter the way the hotspots are interacted with? Looking to make it so that you can just hover over the hotspot to bring up the content, and to also change the icon that appears over the hotspots...is this at all possible? I've looked through the code but can't find anywhere to change things?
Wed, 12/14/2016 - 09:43
The best way to get this done
The best way to get this done is to create a feature request, and give a suggestion for a future proof solution for adding in this feature. The next step would be figuring out how to change the logic to display the content on hover and create a pull request for this in its github repository.
If you were only changing the css of the hotspot, that could be possible with a css hook, but changing the logic for displaying the content dialog would require some code changes.

There isn't a setting for it right now. If you want one to be added, you could create a feature request in the feature request forums:
Alternatively, you could also have a look at the source code on github and comment out the relevant line:
