create pop-up form
do a search for Custom Template, there are a few step by step instructions, your going to need to wrap it in a div and load a jquery plugin
Here is the link to my forum post with Tony.
Getting the form to load in a popup will be easy. Just name a div and place an area inside it. Then add your block to that area. then use css and jQuery to hide it and then display it in a jQuery modal when the user clicks the link.
If you decide that you want to shell out some money, I'd be happy to build it for you.
I am happy the browsers decided to fight back...ads used to be cheesy, and still are (for the most part). Especially those damn emoticons that freaking laugh and talk...I swear, if I had a scope and a rifle....I digress...sorry. As for the pop-up you speak of...how much cash would I be shelling out? (A ballpark est. is fine). Also, to be clear, this is a triggered pop-up...not automated, but welcomed. A user is somewhat agreeing to the pop-up because of the descriptive link.
Anyway, thank you for your response. I appreciate any feedback!
Build this into you're theme and make sure the js is in your header files.
