How to open a popup window , when entering the wordpress blog site

  • Hi friends ,

    I’m new to wordpress developing , so hope you will help me .

    I’m having an online radio broadcast and these days i’m developing a website using wordpress for my radio . My idea is to make my fans more active by making a BLOG ( Like wordpress P2 Theme ) where people can easily post , comment .

    What i want to know is , how to add a popup window ( which my radio flash player to be inserted ) to my wordpress blog .

    I want to popup that window when a user logs to my wordpress website . So is there any way to make this work ?

    Thanks !

    There are plugins to do this http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/popup, but I would question whether this is a good idea as popups are considered by many to be rude and spammy as they hijack the browser and take control away from the user. Also many users have a popup blocker installed. Popups which are coded to defeat popup blockers are particularly spammy in my opinion.

    I would recommend looking at alternative ways to present your content without resorting to a popup and giving the user the option to have audio or not rather than have it start playing with no warning.

    Cube colour , thank you very much for your support .

    I now realize it’s not that much good to have a popup like i was thinking of . Thanks for the advice .

    Anyway brother , this is the my actual problem . Hope you can help me out . Im doing an online radio and it plays in a simple flash player . I tried inserting this player ( the player loads automatically from my steaming service provider , its a java script to load the player ) in the side bar of the site . It’s works fine , but the problem is … the stream stops evrytime when the page refreshes . Even when navigating to other pages . This would be a real headache to my listeners . Even when they post something on the blog , the page refreshes no …

    Please help me out to make my radio plays continuously without any problems .

    I think I would give the users the option click a link which would opens a stand-alone player page in another window/tab allowing them to read the post & page content in the original browser tab.

    Finally , me too think thats the only option left . 🙁 but i’m not satisfied . that will decrease the number of my live listeners …

    Anyway thanks a lot for the advices Mr Micheal ( Cube Colour ) …
