Alligator Popup

Add popups to your site. Add links to pages/posts via a shortcode which will be opened in a popup browser window.

Where is the admin page?

It doesn't have any options that need an admin page, so there isn't one.

What is the syntax of the shortcode?

[popup url="http://cubecolour.co.uk/wp" height="300" width="300" scrollbars="0"]Link Text[/popup]

The values for height and width must be positive integers and the value for scrollbars must be either 1 (to show scrollbars) or 0 (to not show scrollbars)

Are the shortcode parameters all necessary?

The url is a mandatory parameter but height, widths and scrollbars are optional parameters, Default values will be used for any not present.

What is the syntax of a link if I'm not using the shortcode?

<a href="http://cubecolour.co.uk/wp" class="popup" data-height="300" data-width="300" data-scrollbars="0">Link Text</a>

Why doesn't it work?

The plugin does work on the sites it has been tested on. If it is not working for you, you may have done something wrong or maybe your theme is not built to WordPress standards. Feel free to ask for help on the Alligator Popup plugin support page on WordPress.org.

What levels of support are available?

I offer free forum support for free cubecolour plugins where all communication takes place on the WordPress.org forums and a link is provided to the page on your site where I can see the issue without needing a password. Non-free support via email is available if the conditions of obtaining free support on the public forum are not compatible with the level of support required. This paid email support can be requested at: cubecolour.co.uk/premium-support
