While there's been some discussion here of lightbox application, none of it seems to fit current needs. I'm trying to help a friend (CC), but this time of year seems to bestow a dearth of free time upon me .
What's needed is a script, or an application to create a script, that will show some Web pages overlaid upon a home/menu page. Everything I've found so far wants to use images. Certainly there's a way around that, but time constraints forbid me to experiment right now .
I remember a marketing app from some years back - prolly 2004 or so - that would create appropriate script. I likely still have it, but don't recall the name, so a local search for it would be time-consuming, to say the least. I've looked at a jQuery plugin that seems promising, but can't play with it, and while CC is reasonably adept at HTML/PHP he is ... less than conversant with JS, shall we say?
Anyone know of a reasonably simple approach to this? A well-annotated script, perhaps, or an application to create a custom script? He's spent a lot of time on Google, but nothing he's found really works for him.
Basically, CC has a primary Web page with a number of menu items. He wants a half-dozen or so of those menu items to blur/darken the screen, then display a smaller version of the linked page - or perhaps a <div> containing the page. The purpose here is never to leave the primary page for these particular links.
