But Dumb Ideas may not always be so dumb and even a dope like me has a good day.
Since pop up blockers are killing even the pop ups that are part of a site. (And there is a lot of surfers that just aren't smart enough to turn it off.)
I got to thinking that if a pop up could be created with DHTML and have an Iframe ebedded into it.
Is this even possible ?
Let me try and be more clear...
Popups became such a nuisance that smart surfers now run popup stoppers and popup blockers. Even Google and Yahoo have added free popup blocking to their toolbars.
The newest tool many entrepreneurs are now using to get around the blocking is referred to as an “unblockable” popup, because it loads in the same page the visitor is already viewing instead of a separate window.
so I thought of a nice pop up that appears in the browser with a cool, semi-transparent look. When you look at the shadow of the object, you can still see the background.
But instead of a clickable area... It actually displays an Iframe.
I have more than 1 site and if I can " overlap " my sites.. Well, it would help make my life easier.
The idea here is to disable all the elements in an html document and present a dialog which must be "processed" by the user before any other actions can be taken.
I don't want to disable or force the user to click on anything.
What I want to do is have a pop up load in the same page but with an Iframe to another of my sites.
By not having to open a new window, I don't have to worry about pop up blockers.
