I need to be able to provide my users with a code they can use to link to my popup player from their sites. The player window must have no URL scrollbars etc.. just a box 500x200 which opens in the middle of the screen.

The link I give them must be fairly minimal like:

<!-- Begin Link-->
<a href="http://www.mysite.bla" target="_blank">Link</a>
<!-- End Link-->

Therefore I suppose the script functionality would be placed in the <head> of the player page.

Now here's the tricky bit - that player page currently loads into a page in my main site, and so if anything is added to the <head> it should not cause the main site to resize..

Any help would be HIGHLY appreciated! :)

Thanks

Use JavaScript:


<a href="#" onclick="window.open('http://www.mysite.bla','newwin','scrollbar=no,menubar=no,statusbar=no')"

Spot on! And congratulations because you've just made my day :)

Just a quickie - I added the width/height because it didn't reflect it in the code you pasted, is there a way of centering the box too?

Thanks

Use the parameters left, and top to specify where it'll be on the screen. You can do the same for the width and height.
