[resolved] Move popup comments window> (4 posts)

    By default, the popup comments window is in the center/top of the browser window.

    Is there a way I can move it, so when the user clicks the "comments" link, the window will pop up elsewhere? I just want it moved *down* from the top about 200px or so. I tried adding integers to the call-in script ("<?php comments_popup_script(400, 400); ?>" - "400" and "400" being the width and height of the window) but *that* was a mistake. I'd like to know if there's a "left" and "right" attribute somewhere I can pop in there.

    Any ideas? Thanks :)

    You can at some CSS rules in your CSS file for the popup window!

    I realize I can use CSS to edit the presentation of the files - but the question I'm asking would involve the javascript. I currently have a popup javascript that would do what I want done - but I'd rather just go ahead and use the script that comes with wordpress.

    As far as I know, you can't usee CSS to position a new window. Divs, yes - tables, yes - popup windows? Never heard of such a thing. The position of the window itself would reply on the javascript in question - not the CSS.

    Gotcha! I figured it out. In case anyone else needs to know in the future - you need to find your "comment_functions.php" file (located in the "wp-includes" folder).

    Within that file, you need to locate the "comments_popup_script" area. You will see two lines that need to be changed:

    1)function comments_popup_script($width=400, $height=400, $file='') {

    simply add in the "left" and "top" attributes, like so:

    function comments_popup_script($width=400, $height=400, $left=200, $top=200, $file='') {

    2) find this line:

    window.open(macagna, '_blank', 'width=$width,height=$height,scrollbars=yes,status=yes');\n}

    and add in the $left and $top again, like so:

    window.open(macagna, '_blank', 'width=$width,height=$height,left=$left,top=$top,scrollbars=yes,status=yes');\n}

    Voila! You can now position your popup window by adding in two more attributes in the php call mentioned above. Very nice.
