Popup/Overlay with external site
What is the best way to enable a popup window (with control over the size, transparency, etc.) that will display an external website?
I have a client who is using an event ticketing service that won't embed in the site. Nor will it conform to the style of the site. The "easy" solution would be to get a better ticketing service, but the client wants to stick with what they have. My thought was that a popup overlay would be better than taking people to a web page that doesn't look like the web site.
Any thoughts? I have looked at addons, but the ones I used to use back in 5.6 and earlier days aren't available for 8.x (The site is using 8.4.3.)
Thanks in advance.
It was built for 5.7, but I am looking at revamping it to be fully compliant with 8.x and up. I could send you a "beta" version of it, if interested.
It's for building buttons with options. One of the options is an overlay with internal pages or external websites of Stacks. You can set max width and height, background color and transparency...
The good thing is you can also design the button(s) that will trigger the overlay
Here is the test I am running on the site (no button styling yet; just testing for functionality at this point.)
This is the actual external page:
I have tried with a few different external pages, but with similar results. Maybe I am missing something, or is there a better way to do this?
Thanks for your reply to my initial post and for the addon.
You are correct about the max-width. I didn't notice it before and it shouldn't be like that. I'll be pushing a fix today and will keep you posted as soon as it's ready so you can update.
The way the width and height work is they are set to 100% and the values you set in the overlay settings are used as max-width and max-height.
So basically if you set a width, on a screen smaller than that width, the overlay will fill the whole width. And as soon as the screen is larger, it will limit itself to that max-width. Same for height.
If you don't mind, I have a favor to ask. If you could leave a review for the plugin after you had a chance to play with it that would be great. Other users rely heavily on reviews to assess plugins and every little bit helps.
Thank you for your patience.
