Add popups to your site. Add links to pages/posts via a shortcode which will be opened in a popup window.
This plugin allows you to enter a shortcode to add links to pages/posts which will be opened in a popup window. The only options in Alligator popup are entered in the shortcode, so there is no admin page for this plugin.
Add a popup shortcode where you would like a link to appear within your post or page text. The shortcode has parameters for url, height and width and should be in the format:
[popup url="http://cubecolour.co.uk/wp" height="300" width="300"]Link Text[/popup]
Include your own Link Text and values for the url and the width & height of the popup.
If no values are entered for height and width, defaults of 400px are used for the width & height of the popup window.
Instead of using the shortcode you can include your link in the format:
<a href="http://cubecolour.co.uk/wp" class="popup" data-height="300" data-width="300">Link Text</a>
This might be useful in a text widget, or you can build the link in a template file of your theme.
If you are using any other plugin (or a theme) that uses a shortcode with the name 'popup', you will not be able to use this plugin.
On mobile devices such as iPads which don't use browser windows, the link will open in a new tab.
This plugin was written in response to a post by a WordPress.org forum user who promised to wrestle an alligator if his problem with creating popups was solved.
