    Default Pop Up form to join email newsletter - possible in Xara Web Designer Premium??

    Hello...missed you all. Haven't been working lately.
    I was asked if I could make one of those annoying pop ups on a home page where you opt in to join a newsletter. Is it possible to do this in Xara or what would I need to know?

    They use Vertical Response as their choice of newsletters sent out, if that matters.

    Thanks bunches, in advance, all wise ones!

    Sue, this is two parts.

    The first is to get a pop-up in your face.
    Tranquility.xar
    This has a small snippet of code in the Page body that is look for the Name blob on a layer called Blob.

    The second part is harder without more information.
    If the yellow 'here' was a link and it opened an new web page, would you have a code snippet for a Placeholder for the punter to sign up?

    I believe what the client wants is something like this....only to fill it out on your "blob." When I tried yours, it was just there on the page and didn't "pop up." I believe that the company they use would possibly have a sign up form of some type....but I have never used Vertical Response myself.

    Sue, on the button, change the transition for Pop-up layer for Blob to Fade in and 5 seconds.

    Sue, until I have an idea of what the form is, I cannot help further.

    The 'here' click can open another layer with the form on it and close nasty blob.

    I found this info on the Vertical Response website. Do I need to go further as to which form they want to use?

    Sue, let's assume you or your client have designed the sign-up form then this page explains to us embed is code.

    For Xara, you would draw a big rectangle and add the code to the Placeholder code (body).

    Perfect. Thanks so much.
    If I do the website for them, will let you know if I need more assistance, but I think I've got this one!
