Popup window template

Permalink
Hi all,

I'm new to c5. It's a great piece of software. Sure beats Joomla and WP as far as ease of use.

I'm stuck on something though. I'm currently integrating c5 to an existing site, and the site needs some popup windows with a different template. The popups will need to be editable as well. How do I go about achieving this?

an example:http://www.sydtrain.com.au

click on the "Get an Application" image next to the main content.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks,
Roy

When you're adding text, you can click the little link button for a popup - the second tab has options for opening a javascript popup like that.

For the pages that go in the popup, you can add them to the site just like any other page, but choose exclude from nav to keep it from showing up in other menus you have on the site.

Does that help?

That was a good point, but I need a totally new template for those popups?

you could just pull in a 3rd party library like facebox. I don't think it's all that easy to reskin the default concrete dialog popup just yet.

I understand thickbox no longer works with the new jQuery 1.4 and they are no longer updating it. I got fancybox to work with C5

It should only take a couple of minutes to set one up, really. It's not like you need anything complicated, just a header bar and an area to add text content.

Hi, just found this thread in a search for "popups". You sound like you're answering my question, but I'm not sure I understand the answer. When I click the Insert/edit link button and look at the Advanced (second) tab it's not clear to me how to specify that I would like to open a Javascript popup. Would appreciate if you could be more specific.

Thanks,

Eli

just released a popup / dialog window block to the marketplace.

...much easier than having to get javascript libraries included and running, building a custom page type, and overriding the css to match your theme ;-)

Did you ever solve this?

Hello,
Same question here!

I have articles with thumbnail images, and I'd like to have visitors click on the thumbnails and see a popup of a full-sized image.

I added a link on the thumbnail to the full-sized image, and in the "Advanced" tab under "Relationship page to target" I selected "Lightbox."

Clicking on the thumbnail brings up the full-sized image, but not in a Lightbox pop-up.

Here's a link to my test page I'm talking about (click on the smaller image to see what I mean):
