Linking pop-up from text problem - SOLVED

(Terry Vosbein ) #1

I am looking for a solution to this problem, and I turn to the wisdom of the Forum.

I have several academic papers posted on one of my websites. They are made up of mostly text. At the end is a series of “Figures” [images, text, audio playback].

What I would like to do is to make a link in the text the would open up a pop-up in which I could place the appropriate stacks [images, text, and audio playback].

I have used anchor tags, but that is awkward.

I want the web page to remain static in the background as a new, sized window opens up on top. The window should be able to be closed by clicking an X in the corner.

I know there are stacks that can launch pop-ups, but I need the pop-ups to launch by clicking on a short text snippet [i.e., FIGURE 1] within a large paragraph.

If you look at the site below, you will see what I am talking about. Throughout the text there are references to the Figures at the end.

I use the latest versions of RapidWeaver, Stacks and Foundation.

If you’re using Foundation, you can use the included Reveal Lightbox. Linking from text is explained here and you’d just need to ensure unique lightbox ID’s.

I think that should work for you

Could also look at Pop Drop by Big White Duck

or Expose by Joe Workman

Thanks for the suggestions. I went with Reveal Lightbox since I had it. And it seems to be doing the trick. I will look into the other suggestions and see if they provide anything more that seems interesting. Bt for now, I’m up and running.
