I have a list of reviews on a site. They have a blurb and ‘..read more’ . I would like the article to open in a new smaller window on clicking.
I believe ‘pop up windows’ are problematic?
Is that still the consensus?
What about a link to an embedded vimeo film that would open in a smaller window on clicking.
Just wondering what the overall feeling is out there. And why it is a problem.
I recommend ColorBox if you want something smooth and snazzy. http://colorpowered.com/colorbox/ Click "View Demonstration" on the left to see examples.
I’ve been using it lately for clients and they seem to log the smooth transitions. And it’s pretty easy to setup for images, video or text.
