Home Page Pop-Up Window/Message

Permalink
I am working on a current website project using Concrete and my client wants the Home Page to have a pop-up window that display everytime the user visits the home page... The pop-up window will be used for a small email list subscribe form/function, as well as any of messages or displays as they want to change it out.

I've attached an example of what I need to accomplish and any input or guidance would be much appreciated. I have looked at available Blocks in Concrete as well as the Add-Ons, and didn't see anything. But maybe I overlooked something.

Thanks... tga

If you know how to build this kind of thing in plain old javascript and HTML, just do that and put the js in your theme's <head>. You could use some conditional code like this so that it only runs on your home page:
<?php if ($c->getCollectionID() == HOME_CID): ?>
  <script type="text/javascript">
    //put your code here -- it will only run on the home page
  </script>
<?php endif; ?>


Or if you are looking for a marketplace block that does it, perhaps one of these will work:

Thanks for the response Jordanlev!... I am not much of a background coder and more of a front-end designer... so I checked out both of the add-ons you mentioned... the Pop-Up Pro seems to fit the bill.

Hope it works... Thanks again!
