Popup Window In Blogger?

There was a time I needed to make certain links popup on a new window when clicked on. Maybe even popup on a new window of a specific size. I have tried various methods, some work, some don't. Many can be improvised to meet your needs given that you are familiar with javascript or even just basic html. There are many techniques when trying to produce a popup link. There are also varying results. So in the end it is for you to decide which best suits you and your site and/or blog. I will continue to update this post as I find new methods worth using for making popup links.

Here are a bunch of links that I bookmarked that may help:

Some ideas:
  • the use of iframes?
  • use the title attribute for your links?
I would ultimately like to see someone develop a popup tool similar to Kontact's contact form except that you can manage whatever you wanted to popup from a master account of some sort. Until then. Let's wait and see what people come up with!

To tell the truth I have never thought it was a problem question. This topic is described enough extensively at HTML tutorials

Hello Glorius, thanks for visiting. I checked the link you provided, I could not find a topic that described how to create a popup window from a link. Could you provide an exact url? Thanks!
