Open URL link in a new popup windows with no toolbar, status, or address bar


(Bill Fleming) #1

Is there an custom attributes to open URL links in a new pop-up windows with no address bar, toolbar and status bar when clicked?

Thank you
Bill

Do you mean like a lightbox type of window??? Are you using a stacks page for this?!

A clean browser pop up. We have a mailing service and we have an URL of a form where our visitor can go sign up on to join our mailing list but we wanted to pop it in a clean browser where there no address bar, toolbar, etc.

I tried adding
toolbar no
menubar no

it didn’t work

So something like this:


but with a place to put a mailing service signup form in?? This is for stacks pages though, not other type of pages.

If you use Call to Action, you will also need a lightbox stack like the ones that are listed on the integrations page:

The mailing sign up form was create on Emma mailing site and we were provide an URL with a simple form to link it to our sign up button on our website. Before we used a javascript code to pop up a small browser windows with that link and sign up form appears in it for anyone to fill it up but they are actually signing up on Emma website in a pop up browser

I would upload a screenshot but I don’t see any upload button in this post.

Drag and drop to add an image.

If I understood you properly, you could also use something like PopDrop from @tav .

I would agree with Rob on PopDrop, but not knowing what code you want to embed it’s hard to say.

No code just an URL

Like this URL from Emma mailing list https://signup.e2ma.net/signup/1860743/30297/

That’s just a link. Looking at Emma, they offer several options other than the link:

They have a link (what you just gave) a pop-up, iFrame, or JavaScript object. Depends on what you want, but looks like you get the code from them. The link you have above could be used to link to that page.

you can do this with a subdomain - as e2ma have done. It’s not a pop up though.

  • Create a sub domain in cPanel or whatever you use e.g.: sign-up.yourdomain.com
  • Create a one-page rapidweaver project and ensure the page is NOT visible in the navigation
  • Put your contact info in there
  • Publish to your subdomain and put a link to the subdomain wherever you wish

Job done - although why you want to do this is a mystery to me as it makes it more difficult for viewers to get back to your main site when there is no navigation. Far better to put a contact form in a lightbox stack as @zeebe suggests. That way it has a nice space of its own but is still within your main site.

I think I will try to set up a Emma sign up form in a lightbox. I downloaded the PopDrop and now trying to figure out how to set it up to pop up a lightbox with the sign up form in it.

Which code should I use from Emma to use in the lightbox pop up. Iframe?

(Doug Bennett) #13

I don’t have an account with them, so don’t know without seeing the code. An iFrame usually is part of the main page. They listed a pop up as an option, but didn’t show a sample. It’s probably html so I would look at it first.


(Bill Fleming) #14

Yes it in html . Here the html for the pop up .

<a href="https://signup.e2ma.net/signup/1860743/30297/" onclick="window.open('https://signup.e2ma.net/signup/1860743/30297/', 'signup', 'menubar=no, location=no, toolbar=no, scrollbars=yes, height=500'); return false;">Join our list</a>

Right now I am having issue trying to get PopDrop to work to try it out.

What I have done so far is use a Foundation Button from Joe’s Foundation Stack and selected Reveal Launcher as the Button type then entered Reveal ID emmaform

Then I use a PopUp stack and entered ID emmaform and set it to Modal and Pop animation and then I dropped a paragraph in it to test it.

When I clicked on the button, the page darken but no pop up.

Did I miss a step?

I pasted in the html code above and it display the actual link not the code . I tried the bbcode [code] to get it to show up as a code not an actual functioning link but didn’t work. All it show was a grey box


(Doug Bennett) #16

When you paste code into the forum you need to select it and mark it as code.
The </> above the area you pasted in.


(Bill Fleming) #17

Ah that did the trick. Thank you teefers


(Bill Fleming) #18

Look like i need to use Button2 from Big White Duck to use it with PopDrop stack. Downloading the Button2


(Bill Fleming) #19

Yup, I had to use ButtonPlus2 to make it work in Foundation stack template

Not sure why you did not try this with the Foundation Reveal stack, which is a lightbox stack that came with Foundation, but at least PopDrop was a free stack, so you did not spend any money on it.
