    Has anyone found a method of placing a link that will then create a popout Soundcloud music player.  I've seen it on a website – http://www.rumer.co.uk/ – see top right hand corner.  It's perfect for having a media player popout, so the client can continue browsing the site.  Not sure how I'd integrate it into this them, but that would seem to be the easy part.

    Check out this page for prettyphoto (iframes in particular) – you could use a lightbox?

    Thanks.  I'm a bit bit of a newbie regards code, but it says to create a link, then add rel attribute “prettyPhoto” to it (rel=”prettyPhoto”).”  I'm using custom menu, so could I add this here, putting the rel attribute in the title attribute box… or is that a different thing?

    Basically, I'm trying to get the "access music player" easily available on each page, in the top menu…  this is the site page that is relevant (the site is NOT NEARLY finished though – just to show what I'm getting at

    I have a basic popout in the body, which I can use pretty photo with, but ideally I would like it in the menu (it's the songs that sell the band).

    I didn't realise you meant in the menu. See the other post on how to put a CSS class in to open it in a new window.

    Sorry, yes I've put a few posts that may seem to ovelap – in the end, I'm just looking for a way to have a "Launch Music Player" in the menu bar, which launches a mini borderless, toolbar-less popup window!  I'll checkout your solutions…

    Thanks again…

    I now have a short term fix – with target_blank in the menu class, I can open a pre-determined size window with the player inside with this script in the target html page head:

    "<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

    function doresize()

    {

    window.resizeTo(400,300)

    }

    window.onload=doresize()

    </SCRIPT >"

     

    I would imagine that target_blank is defined in a css/js page somewhere, so I would guess that I could in someway duplicate this, call it target_blank_popup, and give it some "toolbar=no, menubar=no" etc properties…

     

    Anyway, I'll push on…

    You'll find the definitiion in the footer.php file and should be pretty easy to add the extra code.
