    Default Please help with popup

    I am going crazy trying to figure how I can have this (see below).

    An image on the screen with the X in top right corner to close it. I want the image to appear first thing when the page loads and the X will close it.

    I will say a prayer for wealth and fortune for anyone that can help me

    2 pages may give you what you need. Easier to show than explain.

    I was going to offer the same as Chris. It works but all home page links then do have to be set to index-a.

    I also have a version with a !splash Layer and a small piece of JavaScript.

    JavaScript - auto-open Layer.xar

    Acorn thank you for your help, I have not done it and will pm you the link, but every time the page is refreshed or the same visitor comes back to the home page the popup appears. Usually when they close the popup window it should stay away for good for that visitor. Any help would be appreciated.

    behzed, Xara-designed websites have no state; they do not remember who has done what.
    If you want the capability to hid a pop-up then you need to set up a session or other Cookie: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_cookies.asp.

    Merci Acorn. I did look outside of Xara and there are services that allow all that and tracking for popups, but they charge, something the client will not pay a monthly fee for. I guess this will do for now. Thank youuuuuuuuuu

    The same as if there were none. People also block JavaScript.

    There comes a point when the utility offered outweighs the perceived impact on personal data.
    I try and block tracking Cookies from third parties and avoid Google searches by using DuckDuckGo. At the same time, I buy things on-line. Without enabled Cookies, I would never be able to fill a cart.

    You would have to code another pop-up to ask if Cookies to allow pop-ups could be controlled through the site and you get stuck in an infinite descent.

    The only Xara-way to get round this would be to enable a Supersite as then you have never left the calling page. You might still have to include a Boolean visited? variable to suppress the pop-up.
