Add popups to your site. Add links to pages/posts via a shortcode which will be opened in a popup window.
Simple, simple, simple.
Just install, activate, and then add on-the-fly configurable popups for anything you need. No jquery or child themes.
[popup url="http://URL-for-popup" height="300" width="800"]Text Displayed for Link[/popup]
My site has downloadable (long) audio files. Now someone can listen and control the playback while still being able to navigate around the site.
super useful!, especially the ability to use it in HTML with the popup class
This is a great plugin! I was searching the internet for something like this and came across your alligator thread......and then installed the plugin.
I did have one slight issue with the way the plugin worked with another plugin I'm using, called justified image grid. When I opened up my galleries on a mobile device, the lightbox window was extremely small (for the plugin justified image grid). I then deactivated the alligator popup plugin, reactivated it, and then emptied my cache.....and my lightbox galleries for justified image grid work perfect now on a mobile. Have no clue how or why that fixed it! Just an FYI if anyone else comes across this same issue...
Thanks again for making this great plugin!
HTML and Shortcode!
This plugin solved a big problem for me--so glad I found the forum post that brought me here! Thanks cubecolour!
Works as expected. Thanks!
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."
If you know this already you should use more specific class name like "A-popup" or "Alligator-popup" to avoid conflict.
I have to edit the name to avoid conflict with my theme.
You would want to have a plugin that work with any themes.
Thanks for the plugin.
Like the original poster who inspired the creation of this, I have been having a really hard time trying to simply make a link to an external url appear in a popup box- this should be trivial. In fact, you can apparently do it by adding a class="thickbox" to a link, but it never works for me.
This plugin does work! But- I really want to it to behave like thickbox- make it modal, and gray out the window in the background. How hard would it be to do this?
No problems installing.
Needs a bit more instructions.
But if you read well enough, everyone can use this.
For me it works like a Charm.
For those like me, who are not so experienced with programming with php and html, plugins like this becomes a blessing!
And when I needed help, it was a quick and helpfull respond!
