    Great plugin...

    I have a client that wats me to embed an excel pricing table into a webpage and make each description row clickable to a simple popup window with a further description.

    He uses OptimizePress 2.0 to create his pages so the excel spreadsheet would also go into an OP@ htnl/shortcode element. Is this even possible?

    Here is the page with a image placeholder of what he wants.

    How are you embedding the excel pricing table? Personally I'd use Takien's Easy table to create the table from data on the page formatted as csv which is simple to edit. http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-table/

    You can use this plugin to turn any page into a popup, so you would just create a new page and put your content into that. It works best with a landing page template. I don't know whether your theme provides a landing page template, but the theme author may be able to help you with that if it doesn't.

    To create the popups, make a new page for each popup with a relevent name, but exclude them from your menu.

    If you can include shortcodes in your table, and I think this should work if you are using Easy Table, you can add each popup link with a shortcode like:

    [popup url="http://example.com/popup-page1" height="300" width="300"]Link Text[/popup]

    If you cannot add shortcodes in your table but you can add html links you could try adding a link in the format:

    <a href="http://example.com/popup-page1" class="popup" data-height="300" data-width="300">Link Text</a>

    Hi cube colour...

    This Easy Plugin table worked find except the coed breaks kind of randomly
    in different cells, do you have any insight into why this might happen?


    Also, do you know if you can add more then one attr to a cell? It seems that I cannot do [attr "font-weight:bold"][attr "color:green"]CellA,

    I really appreciate your help with this.

    It looks like some of the popups are working correctly but you *may not* be notating empty cells correctly.

    I doubt that multiple attribute specifiation would work how you have notated it; It would be probably be to assign a class to the cell & add rules to the stylesheet (in a child theme or custom css plugin) to style the content assigned the class.

    If you can reply & paste in the CSV you're using I don't mind taking a look but you probably need to ask on the Easy Table support forum for support specific to that plugin.
