Thread: my last post on creating bubble pop ups

    Default my last post on creating bubble pop ups

    Folks have certainly been helpful here pointing me in directions that have
    script that create bubble pop ups ... but so far I have attempted to do some
    without success. So this is my last try to see if something is suggested
    that does it easy for me. I would be doing this on all 60 of my pages.

    What I am trying to achieve..
    When someone moves their mouse over the main image on each page a bubble
    pops up letting them know they can click on my
    "customize it" button... to customize it. The bubble can be clickable or
    not. Basically a nice alt tag..
    Dynamic Drive site has been suggested a couple of times but I was not
    successful in getting them to work.

    or this one might be too hard for me ??
    As the mouse goes over the image it triggers the "customize it" rollover
    element on my button in the nav bar

    Joel,

    I think this is a big ask if I am reading this correctly. Are you [a] expecting your NOF nav bar to change somehow when someone hovers over an image somewhere on the page? Or [b] are you just wanting a pop-up to appear over the image to tell the user they can customise something?

    Have you got a URL we can look at and have yo seen a site that does what you want - if so let's see both urls.

    Wouldn't it be great if there was only a single browser to worry about!!!

    DynamicDrive scripts are usually pretty easy to implement. Which one are you trying to install?

    That DynamicDrive script has 3 steps. For Step 1, you'll hit F9 and click the Layout Properties HTML button... and then paste the code before the </head> tag. For Step 2, you'll bring up the same window but paste your code before you see this <!-- NetObjects Fusion Generated BODY -->. For Step 3, you click Link in the Picture Properties palette and then click the HTML button and paste the code there. Is that what you did?

    Took a little effort but I think I finally have it...
    So to do this on many many photos on different pages I imagine I will need
    to add the script to each one, all three steps ?

    Thanks

    And to drive everyone a little crazy here..
    lets say I wanted to try my other idea ?

    On the top of my page is the navigation bar... one of the buttons says
    Customize it. When you run your mouse over the button it changes color.. All
    done with NOF.

    Now how about when you run your mouse over the main picture on my page and
    that button does it's color change ??

    or... have both happen.. the pop up window telling people to click on the
    button AND.. the button above does it's color change.. nice

    You see I know my site is titled Custom Furniture, but I am in the belief
    that people do not read when searching for images.. They come to my site..
    that piece is not exactly what they have in mind and they go away.. I want
    to do all I can to get them to know I am a custom builder..

    Glad you got it working. The Step 3 code needs to be applied to each image, but the Step 1 and Step 2 code, of course, only needs to be done once per page. If you plan to utilize this effect on many pages, then instead of hitting F9 before clicking the HTML button, just hit F10 instead. F10 puts you in a window that impacts all pages that share the same masterborder, whereas F9 would place the code only on the one page you are looking at.

    I understand your desire to stress the Custom aspect of your work and so you're looking for rollovers or popups as a way to say it. But I wonder if maybe you should say it in bigger letters. Maybe get rid of the text that says "Browse Galleries" and "If you don't see it" and also the chair just below that.... and in it's place, in big letters, something like, "Custom Designed, Custom Handcrafted... Choose from our Gallery or Design it Yourself." I'm sure you can say it better than that but you get the idea.
