Category Map Imaging.  Category maps can now display images.

For an example of these in use view this category Map at  Ace of Spades
 
How do I display images in my Category maps?
If an image exists in the 'catmapimages' directory and its name matches the article 'id' then the image will display. Displayed images must be in .jpg format. Simply create an image of a suitable size (about 100 pixels wide works in most domains) and name it to suit the article id. Upload into the 'catmapimages' directory - now check the Category Map to see your images displayed. The CSS classes which permit the Category Map information to be adjusted for display are: CatMapImg: the image region; CatMapDate: The displayed date; CatMapSub: The sub line.
