IDEA: HTML -> open external links in popup (i give up)
« on: July 17, 2006, 10:10:44 AM »
perhaps the code i want is standard, already written, yet i cannot find it after searching for over 3 hours.
when my visitor to my page clicks on a link, that link opens the linked page in a popup window which i can control position size, scroll abilities etc

at the moment, the linked page replaces mine, or if right-clicked opens in new window or tab.

instead, i want my visitor to stay on my page while still allowing the linked site to be viewed as a popup,  smaller than my page, so that my page is still visible in the back of the linked-page.

can you assist me?

EDIT by brotherS: Your question isn't really a Coding Snack, but maybe you can find help here. Please start topics in here with "IDEA: ..." the next time, thanks.
