Create jQuery Pop-Ups
Use jQuery Code for Pop-up Windows
If have to quickly scramble to display a pop-up for a single link then feel free to use the pop-up window generator.
However, it would be better to use jQuery to easily integrate pop-up behavior for any link you choose. By using this jQuery code you can add this pop-up functionality to your website in a very maintainable and easy to use way.
Note: this code is just for jQuery driven popup windows not modal overlay windows.
The Benefits of using jQuery for Popup Windows
jQuery Popup Code Instructions
The jQuery code is set-up for 3 different size pop-ups but you can add more types of popups or change the sizes for existing ones easily. Follow the three steps below to add jQuery popups to your website. At the bottom of the page is a link to an example page so that you can view the working code.
Step 1: Add one of the these css classes to any link to turn it into a pop-up link.
Add any of these CSS classes (popup1, popup2, popup3) to your html link. See the example below:
<a href="http://www.textfixer.com/" class="popup2">jQuery Popup</a>
Step 2: (OPTIONAL) Add a link to jQuery in the head of your document.
If you don't use jQuery already, you can add it your site in the HTML head like the line below.
Click on the jQuery code to select it and then CTRL+C copy it to your clipboard.
This code must come after the jQuery line on your page.
That's about it - it's pretty easy to get it up and running. Change the popup specifications if you have more than 3 popup variations that need to be displayed on your site. You can also change the class names if you prefer a different naming system.
