Display Popup Manually

In order to configure the Popup Login Extension for a particular page element you will have to select "Manually" for the option "Display Popup" in the extension settings as shown below:

Method 1: You will also have to add a class "show_popup_login" to the object to trigger the popup login.

Code Example
<a href="/seespecialevent" !!-class="show_popup_login"-!!>See Special Event</a>


Method 2: You will also have to write an event onclick="return showPopupLogin(this)" in the code for the chosen page element.

Code Example
<a href="/seespecialevent" !!- onclick="return showPopupLogin(this)" -!! >See Special Event</a>


Disable Popup Manually

If you want to disable Popup for some pages, you will have to add the following code to the appropriate section of xml file:

<update handle="popuplogin_remove" />
Code Example
<catalog_category_default translate="label">
 <update handle="popuplogin_remove" />
 ....
</catalog_category_default>

If you want to disable Popup only for a particular element on the page, you will have to add the parameter data-popup="yes" to the selected element. For instance, if you want to disable Pop up for the "About Us" link, you will have to edit the code.

<a href="/about/">About Us</a>

making the following changes:

<a href="/about/" data-popup="yes">About Us</a>


You can also deactivate Popup for a particular controller or block (without disabling it completely), if you set the "Manually" mode for it. As a result, popup will not be displayed on the page. It is very convenient if you want to hide popup due to certain conditions, input parameters and session values.

$this->loadLayout()->getLayout()->getBlock('popup.login')->setMode(4);
Code Example

If you want to hide popup on the "Contact us" page, add the following code in the page template:

public function indexAction()
{
 $this->loadLayout();
 $this->getLayout()->getBlock('contactForm')->setFormAction( Mage::getUrl('*/*/post') );
 
 $this->getLayout()->getBlock('popup.login')->setMode(4);}} // add this line to set popup login to manual mode on this page
 
 $this->_initLayoutMessages('customer/session');
 $this->_initLayoutMessages('catalog/session');
 $this->renderLayout();
}
