Hello,
I am new (of course) blink.gif and first I would like to thank all of the great people here who devote their time to increase knowledge and function across the www.
My name is Tony and I work in an engineering company in China. I am really busy, but as I am from the states I have been selected to upgrade our website. I am not proficient in any code language, so i do a lot of hit-and-miss with HTML, CSS, & JS pages. I make progress, but it is painfully slow for me. The problem is that I just can't let anyone here in China do it for me because they are too cocky and don'd don't have much patience for the language barriers.

Ok, so i think my problem is very simple, but I just don't know how to fix it. wacko.gif

I have a web page online here: http://www.mdhiglobal.com/mdhiorg.html

It is a thumbnail with a mouse-over title and link to an organization chart. At this time if you click on the Org link, the chart simply pops up as a new page in the same tab as the web page. I don't want that. Also there is no navigation of course because its just a .jpg. What I want is a pop-up window modal that the viewer can close. Maybe there could even be a text box in the modal.

I have been trying for 2 days to fix it, but to no avail. I learned how to do many things wrong though.

I would really, really appreciate any help I can get to learn how to fix this without losing the design structure of what is already on the page; ie., I want the page to look the same as it does now...if possible. blush.gif

Thanks!
Tony

If you want the dialog to appear in a new tab or window then add the 'target' attribute to the <a> link. Like this:
CODE
<a href="images/strorgl.jpg" target="_blank">Main Shop Organization</a>

Sir,
thank you very much and I tried that, it works to open the image in the new tab. But what I am really trying to do is make the Organization chart as a pop-up window image on the same page, with an "X" in the corner to close the window after viewing. Can you do that?

Thank you!
Tony

Oh, I guess I misunderstood the question. A google search will turn up many examples so I won't try to explain here. You can look here, to start.
