Up front I should mention that I am using Hype Version 2.5.3 (344)…I should also mention that I am not much of a programmer.
I am having difficulties getting popup links to work when they are delivered through a Hype presentation embedded via iFrame in a Wordpress site.
I am trying to get popups to show when elements are clicked within the Hype presentation.
I am looking for the proper way to set up the popup links in the HYPE generated presentation.
The popup links I have to use are a result of shortcodes generated by the popup plugin I am using in Wordpress. At this point I don’t seem to be able to activate the popups using the links provided by the plugin that I have tried through Hype.
Previously, I created the same Hype file, and with the help of Andrew (I could be wrong about who was helping me previously - it has been several months) I was able to get a regular popup window to activate as a workaround.
This has worked fine for the most part, but I would like to get a “real” popup window to work. A sample of what I am looking for is listed further below…
I have included screen caps at the following addresses highlighting the presentation elements as they are set up in HYPE, and the links as I have applied them.
You can see the page that my test is on at the following address:
The current live page with the workaround:
The screen caps are as follows, with explanation:

Code used for link:
I knew this might not work, but tried it anyway. It takes me to the site 404 page. Given that you are supplying short codes, it was unlikely a link like this would work but I tried (and failed). I included it here for your perusal in case anyone had any alternative thoughts on it that might work.

This was the one I thought should work, but it also takes me to the site 404 page.

Alternative code from the Wordpress plugin used for the link:
This was the first one I tried. Instead of opening a popup, it re-opens the HTML5 presentation in a new window! Not quite what I was looking for but at least it opens something.
So what I am trying to get it to do would be similar to what is on the following link:
If you click on the APPLY ONLINE button, a popup appears with a form on it. THis popup happens to work because the button itself is created in Wordpress directly. No iFrames getting in the way (to my knowledge).
In the case of the items I am having problems with, I am looking for a popup to appear, but it will have a bio of the individual being clicked on - not a form.
In other words, you click on the name of the person (Murray Cunningham, Terry Bolen, Bruce Gilbert, etc.) and a popup appears with bio info.
Once again, you can see the live workaround for this at the following link:
I am hoping there is some way to make this work.
Any thoughts out there? Any help would be most appreciated.
EDIT: An alternative to this would be getting the profile content to load into an iframe within the Hype presentation. As long as the iframe was responsive, that might be an option…
