I replied to a thread on here with a solution to this a while back, take a look at this thread (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15928) for the info about it.

i did get the new window to open up and was able to change the pixels to make it larger, but need to have the new window have scrolling abilities. i tried to put in 'scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes' in several different spots in the code, but could not make it work. here is the code with the page i am trying to get opened up and resizable and with scrollbars.
any ideas?

var menu3=new Array()
menu3[0]='<a onclick="window.open(this.href,\'newwin\',\'height=400,width=550\'); return false" href="https://www.informe.org/moses/">Get Your License</a>'

:confused:

Either copy and paste the above code where you want it, or you can simply copy and paste the parts in red wherever you want it at in your code.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Notice the comma after "width", this sepearates another setting in the window.open function.
