        Hi Leandro,

        At present this plugin not support the short code option, only widget option available. or you can call the PHP method from theme PHP file.

          I can’t find the exact PHP file to enter the code. Is it located in the Theme directory?

          But which file is it? I just need to modify one page and not the entire site. This is something that I can’t figure out with WordPress. I hope the ShortCode gets done soon because that would be a great time saver.

        June 13, 2012 at 11:34 pm #

        I have the same problem as Leandro and Surez. I am trying to put multiple popups on the same page. If I put multiple short codes in the widget, it still calls up only the popup linked to the first short code.

        I may be trying to do this incorrectly. I am going to edit page area, then inputting where I want the reader to see the popup link. But I notice in your explanation, you say:

        Copy and paste the below mentioned code to your desired template location (ie in PHP file).

        Is the PHP file something different from the edit page? Where is this PHP file? I assume the PHP file shows the text of the page so I can insert the code where I want it. Also, am I correct to input multiple short codes in the widget for all the popups I want on my blog? Or is there some way to have multiple Anything Popup widgets? If so, I can’t figure out how I can have more than one Anything Popup widget.

        Sorry I’m such a beginner. Hope you can help me. Thank you.

    Your plugin includes jQuery the wrong way!!!
    Doing so, it BREAKS other jquery plugins and site functionality.

    Please only use jquery this way:
    wp_enqueue_script( ‘jquery’ );

    June 11, 2012 at 10:02 am #

    A very quick question. Like this popup and it was great to start with but now positions way down the page out of view. I know you have mentioned above about going to lines 32,33,35 and 36 in the anyhting-popup.js. My problem is I dont have a line count in the wordpress update area, so which is it and as a novice, what do you mean by comment and uncomment. Any chance of typing what I should be looking at pre and post change. Thanks

    Any idea when the shortcode option will be available. I need to have multiple pop up’s on a page, but right now you only get the first shortcode to pop each time. Love the plugin, just wondering when this might be available.

  8. Dennis Crawford
    June 14, 2012 at 1:56 am #

    Yes – AGREE! I just spent a lot of time getting this plug-in working exactly how I want it and now I find out that it doesn’t support the shortcode option.

    This is very upsetting. I would have spent time on another plug-in had I known that up front.

    Do you know when this feature will be available? It’s worth $$ if it had that and maybe a couple other features (such as background image selection, bgcolor, etc.)

            June 14, 2012 at 3:34 am #

            Well, yeah kind of figured that one out. My question is will it ever be possible to have more than one on a page? If not, it should be mentioned on the description page.

            I know this is free and beggars can’t be choosers, but would love to have more than one on a page. It’s kind of useless to me with only one per page and sounds like many others want the same. Promise I’m not trying to be a jerk. :)

            June 14, 2012 at 11:38 pm #

            That’s exactly the issue. I have a page that I absolutely need more than one code per page. This is the problem i’m having — the plug-ins that support more than one code per page, do not support clickable text. And I see this plug-in is the opposite.

            Is there any plans to support more than one code per page? If so, when? I desperately need this type of plug-in…

            November 1, 2012 at 10:47 am #

            One code per page? This is a joke? What do you think, why we want to use popups on a page? Because lots of them…

            My recommendation:
            – make a popup message dispatcher php file
            – the javascript download the popup content over this php, when it opened (ajax) (you can add fancy loading icon too, when loading is more then 0.3 sec)
            – javascript instance store only popup id (oo javascript)

            and finally until it’s not done: wrote this “little” limitation somewhere, because i worked days, to integrate this component to my site, fixed up your buggy positioning code, wrote my generator, fill out 3 form, and after i found this…

    Impressive plugin…I like the js/html5/css implementation.

    Like other comments I really need the in-page shortcode to be functioning before I can really use it.

    I would also like to be able to define the popup content in a post or page and be able to specify the post/page ID as an option in the setup rather than including content in Settings/Anything-popup.

    Great work

    Hi, first of all a great plugin so thank you! I have only one problem, I try to use de popup functionality in plain text. So if you click on the link you will get de popup. The only problem is that I get a “next-line” before and after the popup link…

    Is there a way without the extra “next-line”?

        The link breaks. When I view source the link is all there, but when I hover over the image I get that shortened link. Is there a fix I’m missing somewhere?

  18. Jason
    August 8, 2012 at 4:45 am #

    I’m seeing the error, just not how to fix.

    When I use text only, the lead in to the javascript is:

    a href=’

    When I use an image, the lead in is:

    a href=”

    Which causes an error when it sees the first ” before the javascript kicks in.

    I think “anything” is a bit misleading as it simply does not allow me to input php or shortcodes in the text area. I am trying to get a contact form to show by use of a shortcode, and it just literally displays the shortcode!!

    I can put any php inside it and it just shows what I type, it doesn’t produce the output as it should.

    Is there a fix for this or do I need to find some other plugin?

    Great plugin, but there’s an annoyance.
    On the page, choose *product info* popup link.
    In this popup there’s an unordered list.
    In between the items, something is inserting tags. I’ve managed to hide them using line height, but this is not a great solution, and there are still extra tags between the heading and the first list item.
    This is NOT an issue with the twentyten theme as it doesn’t happen anywhere else, so I think it’s generated by the plugin script.

    What can be done to stop it inserting tags in List items?

    Many Thanks

  33. Simon
    October 22, 2012 at 7:52 am #

    OK before the word tags, it’s taken out the code for breaktags.

    I am trying to display a live streaming video in a popup. This part works perfectly. My problem is that the video is loading and playing in the background even if the user does not click on the popup link. Is there a way to prevent this?

    Here is the link I am trying to display in the popup.

    Thank you

    Hi, this is a great plugin – thank you!

    I am using it for a information popup on a painting website

    The pop up code seems to be adding a trailing tag which is causing unwanted white space. Can you tell me what to modify to remove the tag?


  47. John
    November 12, 2012 at 8:41 pm #

    It was not your tag it was mine! however the plugin did add additional white space below the link. The solution was to edit the tag so that the content divs were placed just before the tag, the style was added to the header (rather than in line) and the link just held the java script.

    Of course this means the content can no longer be edited through the console but I can live with that.

    Let me know if you want more info.

      November 12, 2012 at 8:58 pm #

      the above should read “before the [/body] tag”

      • dropdead
        November 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

        Hey Sudd – I got it to work and here’s what I did:

        – I opened up “anything-popup.php”, “anything-popup.js”, and “settings.js”.

        – Open the edit window of the plugin in wordpress

        – Copy and paste the code from the new files into their appropriate file in wordpress

        – Save and bada-bing!

        This at least worked for me – hopefully this helps you some.

          dropdead, I am having the same issue and was wondering if you could be more explicit about what you did. You said you copied and pasted the code from the new files (what are those files you are referring to? (are they the anything-popup files)) What are the appropriate files you in wordpress? Would you care to share? I would love to have it working soon and hope you would not mind sharing.

          • dropdead
            December 1, 2012 at 7:49 pm #

            Sure, up above “DANNY” shared a file. Within this file you should open the “anything-popup.php”, “anything-popup.js”, and “settings.js” in your preferred text editor – I use “TextMate”.

            In WordPress after you install the original plugin go to your plugins dashboard, find anything popup and click “edit”. On the right hand side you see the different files. Open “anything-popup.php”, copy the content from the same file that DANNY provided and paste it into the wordpress editor. Repeat this step after saving for the other two files.

            Hope this helps! Sorry I didn’t see this sooner.

    Thanks Danny the files really works in making the multiple popup on single page/post. Save lot of time in searching the solution…. great work.

    Although the Author have made the great plugin but you have added the code which really make this plugin of more worth. Also suggest the Author to update the plugin with your given code. Again good work for both.

    I have three remarks.
    1. The most important: The plugin layer appears behind the horizontal menu for me. See the link.
    2. The UTF-8 coding of the Popup Title is faulty.
    3. It would be useful to make the Close button editable.

    I’m running a plugin called “WordPress Toolbar” on my site. With this, every external link on my site opens in an iframe with a toolbar from my site at the top with some buttons. Now I want some of those buttons to open popups. I thought, your plugin would be perfect. But there is a lot of html-code in the other plugin-php-file to create the toolbar, always starting with $html .= It’s easy to show some buttons or text there using html, but how can I insert your plugin there? (shortcode?). Please help, thx.

    The plugin seem to do what I want, but some behaviour is not expected and unwanted:

    This is a [link] that is in the middle of a sentence

    Results in to:
    This is a [link]

    This looks like a great plugin, but there is an issue when using Multisite, WP 3.5.1, and plugin version 4.1. When I go to add new (or edit the sample) I get a message that says:

    “Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party.

    Are you sure you want to continue sending this information?”

    After this, if I click Yes, I am redirected to the WP login page, I login again, and find there have not been any updates. Any suggestions?

    I am trying to use your popup as a contact information window for about 40 individuals on a single page. Everything works fine in Firefox. However, in IE 9, the popups work fine up to the 17th shortcode reference. After that, the popups no longer work. Instead, they open in the table cell by simply expanding the cell.
    I have checked everything, including the data in the MySQL database for that page. I can find nothing different about any of the shortcode references, table cells, page layout, etc.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is it possible to make the popup responsive and size dynamically? Also popup placement? I have commented/uncommented to allow me to specify the position but as we are restricted to actual pixel placement I’m stuck.

    I am wondering if there is a way to make this popup box able to be moved on the page when it is opened- on various size browsers sometimes it opens with portions of the popup off the page or invisible. as I have signup forms in my popups, sometimes the submit button or the scroll bar is invisible- would be lovely if the plugin could simply be dragged around the page by the user, so the could move it to a position that functioned better for them based on their screen size.

    I love this plugin. It provides a clean and simple, good-looking pop-up and works really well in a desktop browser.

    However, it’s not so great on a mobile device, specifically an iPhone. When zooming into enlarge the text, because of the relative positioning, the pop-up moves off the bottom right hand corner of the screen. There doesn’t seem to be any way to drag it back into view. I’ve tried fixed positioning and this helps a bit but it’s still not perfect and it makes it less effective in a desktop browser.

    I’d love it even more if it could be made to behave differently on a mobile device. Perhaps there could be setting to force the pop-up to fix it’s position in the top left corner of the page or perhaps open in a new page entirely on a mobile OS?

    Hello Team,

    Here you should change , so that we can also insert the shortcode in anything content area.

    You don’t write the function ‘do_shortcode ‘ so please add this function .

    function AnythingPopup( $pop_id = “1” )
    global $wpdb, $wp_version;
    $ArrInput = array();
    $ArrInput[“id”] = $pop_id;
    AnythingPopup_shortcode( $ArrInput ); => plugin code
    // echo do_shortcode(AnythingPopup_shortcode( $ArrInput )); => my code

    replace my code on plugin code so you are able to use the shortcode also.

    I would like to know if it is possible to have to popup enabled and to be able to click (or do any operations) on the underlying site. It seems that the underlying site’s functions are disabled.
    Is this possible?

    Update to my problem outlined in message of July 16th. It is not the number of popups that is causing my problem but scrolling the web page is causing all popups to become locked in position. If the web page is not scrolled then all popups can be moved around the screen. Any ideas?

      This may be problem with your WordPress theme, or plugin conflict with your WordPress theme.

      PHP code already available in this post. You can use that PHP code in your theme file to load the popup window.

          file : anything-popup.php
          method : javascript:AnythingPopup_OpenForm()

          Please check the above line of code from the plugin file. You can use this JS method to call the popup. You can find anything-popup.js file in the plugin folder for popup JavaScript. This is only hint; you may need to modify the CSS and JS file to call from your flash.
