Simple Popup Plugin
[resolved] Scrollbar, Toolbar gone (8 posts)

    Handy plugin. Working fine until just recently. The scrollbar, toolbar, etc. in the popup window has disappeared.

    I've tried disabling some plugins and the problem persists.

    Oh, I do get a scrollbar in Chrome. Firefox, Opera and IE8 don't show the bars. All was fine.

    Any solution(s)?

    In the latest download there is a file that has to do with the widget. I got rid of this file and moved plugin files from another site. Voila! The popup works with scrollbar, toolbar, etc.

    I'm thinkin' it's a coding issue. Just guessin'.

    Handy plugin just the same.

    It seems the author forgot to pass some PHP variables to the javascript handler.

    If you're brave enough:

    1. open '/wp-content/plugins/simple-popup-plugin/simple_popup_plugin.php'
    2. Look on rule #52, it should start like this:
    settings="width=" + w + ",height=" + h + ",top=" + mytop + ",left=

    3. Replace that whole line with this:
    settings="width=" + w + ",height=" + h + ",top=" + mytop + ",left=" + myleft + ",scrollbars=<?php echo $scrollbar ?>,location=<?php echo $location ?>,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,toolbar=<?php echo $toolbar ?>,resizable=no";swin=window.open(mypage,myname,settings);

    Any chance of fixing this problem?
    I only get scrollbars in Chrome which makes it less than useful!

    Try replacing your existing simple_popup_plugin.php with the following code:

    This works for me on an XP machine in Firefox, Chrome, Opera ... all the latest versions and IE8.
