[Pro] opening a link so it stays on my site

The title probably doesn’t describe what I am looking to do, but basically I would like to create a situation where the user clicks on a link and the outside area goes dark to show a new panel from another site, but it appears as though you are still on the original domain. then when you close that panel you automatically come back to my normal site. I’ve seen this done on the web lots of times.

Can anybody tell me how this is done in Freeway?

Here is an example of what I mean at PayPal Payments Standard Shopping Cart
if you click on the add to cart button.

In my case I want to achieve the same sort of effect simply so that visitors stay on the site and avoid traffic leaks.

I think you need to use lightbox…

Thanks Rich, that’s definitely the right idea and it’s sort of working. The area goes dark around the edges however, it’s not respecting size parameters that I have added in the action window, so it’s still showing pretty much the entire other web page.
