  1. Many Thanks for plugin.

    The WordPress Description notes contain the instruction :

    Paste the php code to your php file

    To insert the popup into (say) a header.php file I have tried variations of


    No success ! Not a coder. Would appreciate help to insert this shortcode into a php file.

  2. I have just installed this plugin – I have tried to use a thumbnail image to pop up a bigger version of that image – The thumbnail appears but when you click the image nothing happens. Have followed the instructions. Any advice would be good thanks

  3. I installed the onclick-show popup. It works great. it is a fantastic plugin.
    However when I copy and past the code into a page, it appears as an ordered list i.e. with a little square bullet point.
    Please any ideas how to edit the onclick-show popup in such a way that the bullet does not show when the code is pasted into a page.

    • Graet little Plugi-in just what I was looking some limitations but still great. Ray Did you did you find a way around the bullet list

  4. Hello,

    Just downloaded Onclick show popup and when I click on the link I get a message that reads:

    Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.

    Is this only to display images or can I copy the html from another page a have it displayed?

  5. What I am really looking for is a way to have a form with some (?). When people click on the ? they get a help pop-up or DOM file. Any ideas?

  6. Bug?
    When on same page there is:

    On click show only Group1 popup, when cliсk on any group…

  7. i would like to thank u for the plugin i installed it and it’s a great one. but i was wondering how could i change the width of the popup .
    ” i tried to insert a table in the popup and it didn’t fit into the popup” .. i need to increase the width of the popup any ideas

  8. same question,, would like to increase with width,, so going to hack the plugin to suit my needs, otherwise its Great, Thanks

  9. @ AMR

    I have spent the last hour trying to find how to change the width. It is in the
    onclick-show-popup/js/jquery.prettyPhoto.js file

    under “default_width:500” change that to the dimensions you want.

    @ Ray

    To get rid of the bullet point. View your site in a web browser then view source and then copy the code back into your site. But removing the WP code. Then remove the from the code where the popup is.

    Hope this helps guys

  10. Two things that are causing problems for me:

    The content for each group comes up in a random order for some reason. I’d like to stop that behaviour but can’t work out how. Any order will do, but it needs to be a fixed order!

    How can I control the default typeface used in popups? Specifying it in the HTML for the content isn’t reliable, some fonts work but others don’t. I cannot see how the plugin is getting the default style for the text.

    Please … Help!!!
    Thanks in advance.

  11. Can someone explain to me step by step how to configure this plugin. I installed it, I added the code in the page, and when I click it I receive #inline_demo0.

  12. Tell you what…I’ve got better things to do than read everything you ever wrote trying to figure out how to use this thing. It’s crap!!! Why don’t you create a help file. Exact instructions for everything in one place!!! Can you spell d-e-l-e-t-e? That reminds me: Learn some English!!!! What a waste of my time.

  13. I am not able to make this plugin work, I have installed it successfully but where exactly i need to put this shortcode, I am trying to make this pop in a post.
    can anybody please help????

  14. Rohit,
    1. Put the short code on the HTML section of the page where you want to use it (if you want it in a particular page)
    2. go back to Settings/Onclickpop and choose content management. Edit the text and set Visible YES. (instructions are not clear on this site, it tells you different ways to install but not how to use it. I am tempted to write a clearer one). I got it all working but it doesn’t show well on the iPhone. If you want to enlarge to read the popup better, the pop up moves all over the screen, its hard to read. Its a good plugin but if its hard to view on the iPhone, unfortunately can’t use it. Hope there will be a fix to this.

  15. Installed it and uninstalled it within 10 mins as the inline method keeps failing, presenting the error message “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.”

    Since there’s no image in the message, I assume it’s failing to find its own folder path (my WP install is not in the root of the domain).

  16. I have installed the plugin successfully and I’m happy with it so far. The only thing I need help with is figuring out how to resize the height of the popup box. I’ve gone into the css and .js files and it doesn’t work. Any help would be appreciated.

  17. Hello,
    looking back, the question was not so much how to increase the width, but after increasing it, how to auto-center it.

    Anyway, new question.
    Im searching for a way to change the short code into a link?
    I need this -> [ONCLICK-SHOW-POPUP:GROUP=GROUP1] to be a some how attached as a link, so instead of clicking the Title(s) Id like to assign [ONCLICK-SHOW-POPUP:GROUP=GROUP1] to images.

  18. Hi All

    I was wondering if someone could tell me if and how (in detail) this popup could be called via clinking on an image.

    I am new …detailed instructions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

  19. HOW-TO-REMOVE BULLET from the POPUP links in post:

    In the Editor for the Plugin locate:


    Now toward the end of this file there is a line saying:

    @$li = @$li . ‘‘.$OnclickShowPopup_title.’‘;

    Remove the: and the:

    Rememeber to ‘Update file’ and that’s it

  20. I’m trying to include a form inside the pop up and it isn’t working. I’ve tried the shortcode, and i have tried the view source copy form and past and i tried it with and with out js…

    Can you please inform me as to the possibility of including forms inside pop up?


  21. Hi All,

    For some reason when I add content to the popup window, in some cases the “close” button gets clipped by the bottom of the window, i.e. I only get half a close button. Does anyone have any Idea why this might be happening/how to fix?


  22. Never mind, solved it, HTML problem.

    I have run into another problem however, I went into the PHP to increase the number of groups and it seemed to have worked until I got up into double digits, any thoughts on how to get the code to recognize groups higher than 9?

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated



  23. When on same page there is:
    [onclick-show-popup group=”1″]
    [onclick-show-popup group=”2″]
    [onclick-show-popup group=”3″]
    [onclick-show-popup group=”4″]

    On click show only Group1 popup, when any group is clicked?
    I saw post from a year ago that talk about setting counter to group instead in the php.

    Is this still the workaround or is the plugin updates to take the ID of the popup instead of GROUP.


  24. I love this plugin. The only thing is that I don’t seem to be able to adjust the height and the width of the popup window. I went to jquery.PrettyPhoto.js and change the default_width and default_height, but that didnt do it.

    Is there a way for me to do this?



  25. Are you help us or what? Please, everybody have same problem…
