    Default How to create a pop-up window

    How can I make a page pop-up in a window instead of loading the usual way? Or make a pic pop up from the page?

    Use the popup option in the link properties palette.

    I should have figured that out as long as I've been on NOF. The tut was also helpful.
    I have noticed that the window stays open forever until I close it...Is there a way to close it upon leaving the current page?

    I have tutorials on how to close scripted windows onclick, onExit, or even after a set amount of time.

    Default Some help with this

    I got that working so far,...but is there a way for the pop up window to be opened automatically once the landing page is opened/loaded?

    every current browser will block these. also your search engine ranking will possibly decline, I suppose.

    I don't think browsers will bock the NOF pop up window. However, it depends what the pop up is being used for as to whether they are a good idea.
    If they are used to convey information eg pop up price list then fine, but if they pop up to get you to buy something etc (which as you requested auto close after a period of time it might well be), then not a good idea.

    Personally if I visit sites with pop up adverts all the time I immediately click close and don't go back to that website - they are SO annoying.

    You can launch a popup window with js like this:

    $(function() {
    window.open ("http://jsc.simfatic-solutions.com","mywindow");
    });

    or use a plugin like FancyBox (google it).

    But as Peter said, you should have a really great reason for doing something like this. It really irritates users and you may well be penalised by Google (and other search engines).

    he was talking of automated pop-up windows. all modern browsers block these. see Firefox as example.

    Not sure if he was. Seems to me he was talking about the NOF pop up facility, automated or not.
    This is NOT the same as JS commercial ones (which ARE often - but not always - blocked).
    The NOF one is simply a smaller web page that gets displayed either on a new tab or as an overlay on existing page.
