Requires adjustment for design but works fantastically.
I used it to pop up a little bit of text flowing around a small picture on a background which was built on a page-type called "popUp" which has its own css as well.
Nice and easy
Got plenty of options to customise even multiple popups on a page that look different for different links and/or classes
Great Addon, proficient suppport!
@ Tony: THANKs 4 your work!

Cool, exactly what i was looking for!
So many applications it can be used for that makes it a really powerful tool to have in the box.
Nice one Tony
Mostly a Good Add-On
One of the best
I use it to provide:
- preview access to different pages
- previews of other websites for portfolios
- and quick access to other content I don't want cluttering up the main page, such as
-- larger images
-- and product purchases.
Beyond normal uses I also wanted to create a popup of text snippets. Short paragraphs that offer brief explanations kind of like popup help. To accomplish this, I created a new page type then linked to my new pages within the popup.
1. Created new page type, bare bones, full width with no sidebars.
2. I made the page type excluded from NAV, search, etc.
3. Then go into Edit mode and add a new page. Add some content to the main area and exit editing. Note the url when you exit and copy it.
4. When you are on another page just create your popup link as normal, pasting in the url that you copied.
Test the link to make sure the popup works and you should see a nice clean snippet of text.
Way too complicated
Frankly, this is even too complicated for me to bother with. I open up the first panel and it is completely unintuitive. When I viewed the tutorials, I got a headache. Wonderful and fantastic that it works with other Add-Ons, but that just complicates things even more and ups the price considerably if you're going to use a bunch of Add-Ons to achieve one goal.
I'm sure it's a good product, though, since Tony made it.
I give it 3 stars just on the fact that Tony's Add-Ons actually WORK and aren't broken from the start. Plus, he gives great support. For me, though, this was a waste of $25. At least it works, though.
In contrast, the Gallery Add-On created by created by Concrete5 which is supposedly simpler and sells for $15 was broken from the start and I got no support whatsoever, so I definitely DO NOT recommend that as an alternative.
If you need something like this, this is probably your best bet, but we definitely need more and simpler options.
I hope Tony makes a simpler version because his are the only Add-Ons I'll buy anymore. His are the only Add-Ons I've bought that aren't buggy or flat-out broken!
So, I feel bad about giving 3 stars given that Tony is my favorite Add-On maker, but that grade only reflects difficulty of use.
Support is excellent as well, my issues, which I created :), where quicky resolved by tony.
To top it all it integrates well with the stats plugin!!
Very nice ...
Very nice effect with simple implementation. I just added a selector in typography.css for easy assignment within the Editor. Works like a charm.
Using with standard C5 pages for the moment, but will expand to Google Calendar Event pop-ups shortly.
Very useful block
There are a few limitations, which Tony discloses. And he was very quick to fix an error I noticed, which is always appreciated.
