[Pro] Discreet pop up window

Was wondering if there is a way to create a small popup window on a page, like a scripty lightbox window but just automatically when a page is opened. Thanks!

Check out the Spawn New Window Action, which has a timed option for these sorts of popups. If you set it to iPad mode, you get the new layer like ScriptyLightbox vs. the new complete window.

Doesn’t have an automatic mode. Have to click on the text to get the new window.

Where is the Timed Option? Don’t see that guy.

Thanks. That pop up window can be blocked by Safari and Firefox. Was hoping for some trick around that.

Would like something that CNN and USAtoday use that pushes the page down until it is clicked off.

This doesn’t actually push the page down - http://www.deltadesign.co/fw_examples/jQuery/poptopmessage.html

But it could be set to do that, however there are no actions involved - hand coded.

These guys have a cool setup that creates a popup that gets around the blocks.

Sure and they also have a bucket load of jQuery on that page including a plug-in called subscribepopup.js

How dirty do you want to get your hands?

I don’t want dirt under my nails.

Draw an HTML box on the page where you want your form to appear. Click once on that box before you draw each part of your window, so that the elements are all contained within the parent box. (You are creating a nested construction element, so you can turn the whole thing off and on as one unit.)

Apply the TransitionFX Action to that outer HTML box. Check “On Page Load”, “Initially Hidden” and set the effect duration and delay you desire.

Done and dusted.

How is this a ‘discreet’ popup?

discreet - unobtrusive, inconspicuous, subtle, low-key, understated,
subdued, muted, soft, restrained.

A more accurate adjective would be ‘blatant’ – flagrant, glaring, obvious,
shameless, brazen…

and how is it ‘cool’ that the example circumvents the visitor’s deliberate
attempt to block such things?

This thread should be, “How to make (with minimal effort) a cockblocking
popup window that forces users to view content against their will”

which is too long of course, so how about “Spammy pop up window”?

Ok, putting aside for a moment that few things will make me leave a site faster than a pop-up, I often wonder how effective this approach is from a marketing perspective. I would really like to see some data because I have a very difficult time believing its usefulness.

if it is controlled by the people who have created the site and it is fairly small, then I think it is useful. The pop up windows I do not like are the blaring ads for something totally unrelated to the site.

Here is another offering - http://deltadesign.co/FW7Test/popup-form.html

This popup/sign up form uses Transition FX to appear on the page on page load. It utilises a cookie so that returning visitors will not see it if they return within 60s (expiry length optional)
