Once you have installed the add-in following these instructions How to Install Add-ins, you will see a new entry on the Insert menu which launches the add-in and there are brief help notes in the main Help menu.
How to use the WinPop add-in
- From the Insert menu > select PopUp Window
- Fill in the Main Parameters which are mandatory:
- Select the Options you wish to include with the popup window.
- Click Insert.
You can then preview your page in your favorite browser, click the hyperlink and you will see the pop-up window you just created. The code you entered will contain the following
target="xPopUp" which will NOT validate if you are using a Strict doctype statement but the pop-up window works perfectly. You can view a working example of the WinPop add-in in action on my genealogy site. Click on family history in the first paragraph, and a pop-up window will open to a Wikipedia article.
You can download all of Ian’s Expression Web Add-ins from the Expression Web Gallery.
