    Pop-Ups That Don't Divert Visitor from Home Page

    One thing (so far) I'm having trouble wrapping my head around is how to add links to my home page which will open a new window, but not in the traditional "pop-up" manner. If possible, have a look at this website: jchristopherdunn . com

    Now, click on the read complete bio link. See what this does? This is what I'd like to incorporate into the website I'm building using GoDaddy.com.

    Thanks in advance!

    That layout has everything on one page and uses the <A> anchor tag to take you to a certain section of the page.
    Check THIS out for more info.

    That style of popup is typically known as a modal dialog or a lightbox window. It requires some javascript to work. There are numerous libraries out there to provide such functionality easily.

    • DonR agrees : OMG, I forgot to turn OFF noscript before viewing it, so, for me it acted like the link I provided :oops:
