Perhaps what I'm trying to do isn't appropriate. I want to have a content type that contains a map image. Then I want it to contain a list of items that have X,Y pixel locations, name, url etc. The View will display the map, place "dots"
on the map where the X,Y location is at for each of the items in the list of locations.
The plan was to create two custom types MySite and MapLocations(see my post with the XML)
The MySite would contain a list of the MapLocations.
MapLocations was overridden in the theme to write binding data elements
MySite was over ridden with the purpose of displaying the map then running through the MapLocations in order to place dots in the right area.
make sense? better approach to take?
Seriously.... thanks for your assistance and walking me though this!
