As snappy as an alligator
By , for WP 4.0.1

Started using this instead of having to manually code the js.

Worked like it is suppose to, as with any plugin it can conflict and not play nice at times, but works like a charm once you find the culprit.

I installed it, specified the vertical & horizontal dimensions. Added site. IT REALLY WORKED!!! 3 minute into this plugin and I'm happy. I wished all plugins worked as specified. Thank you. Added you to my donation list.

I almost forgot. Can you add a custom location popup feature so it's not always center? It be cool to have it pop-able next to the click for those tiny 200x400 popups.


Love it and it's story!

I was searching for JUST this type of Plugin when I came across the original post of someone else searching for something like it. One of the responders, in practically no time flat, selflessly created THIS plugin on the poster's great idea....SO perfect for what I needed!
Question, though...did the original poster ever wrestle that lockjawed alligator for you? ;)

Simple and effective. Does exactly what I need it to do. Thanks very much!

Simple, Perfect Solution

I have been trying to load my old Flash files in my portfolio. I needed them to load in a new window to match their dimensions, AND load from my other server, where I have some scripts for the files, and source files for data and audio... this is perfect. I love that it loads in the center of the window, too. I stumbled upon this beautiful little plugin from a forum post. The author is so generous and kind to have written this to help someone out. I'm donating!

Beautifully Simple and Lightweight

Simple, simple, simple.

Just install, activate, and then add on-the-fly configurable popups for anything you need. No jquery or child themes.

[popup url="http://URL-for-popup" height="300" width="800"]Text Displayed for Link[/popup]

My site has downloadable (long) audio files. Now someone can listen and control the playback while still being able to navigate around the site.
