formatting pop-up text

Postby livetoski on Wed Apr 23, 2008 2:19 pm

How do I make it look pretty?

I would like a couple of bullets, say, and some spaces?

Is that asking too much?

Will it look okay if I use html tags and generate it for real? In the preview within Flare I just see all my tags.posting.php?mode=post&f=12#
:cry:

Should I use something else other than a popup? (I want it like a pop up though.)

What you want to do is popup a topic, not just text. Create a topic file with the information and appearance you want. In the main topic, insert a hyperlink, select the topic to popup, then set the target to Popup Window. Depending on how much content is in that topic being popped up, you might want to modify the width and height dimensions of the a.popup styles in the stylesheet so that the popup window is wider and taller. Once you've modified the styles, edit the hyperlink the main topic to include a reference to the "Popup" class style.

Thanks for the reply, Lisa. I appreciate it. I didn't want to go to that much trouble for this instance.
