View Full Version : Resolved Sticky Note - Only on request

05-31-2012, 09:03 AM
1) Script Title: Sticky Note script v2.0

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/stickynote.htm

3) Describe problem:

I would like to use all the features of this script in some cases "without" any pop-up window whenever the page loads. That is, only with severals links like

Show | Hide sticky note 1 etc...

What should I put in showfrequency: 'always', obviously NNOOOO

I try '0' and 'none' but I think perhaps this is "contra natura" of this script.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thank you so much vwphillips for your quick answer!
Till now I was trying your StickyNote code in combination with another one, but there is an incompatibility issue (or perhaps I have no the necessary skill to build the page correctly). Your approach is too much complicated to me!

"Moltes grącies". Best regards from Catalonia.
