Insert using an IFRAME

1. Create the player page.

The first step for creating a pop up link is to use the Customizer Tool to generate an HTML page ("myWimpy.html"). Once you've saved the "myWimpy.html" to your PC, upload the file to your web site. The file can be uploaded to any location. We recommend uploading the page to your Wimpy Installation folder.

This will be the page we load into the IFRAME. Be sure to jot down the URL to this page, as we'll need the URL in the following steps.

2. Determine the Width and Height

Open the "myWimpy.html" file with a text editor (or HTML editor) and find the references to the width and height. This information is located in two places, once in the <object> tag

<object classid="clsid..version=6,0,47,0" width="520" height="300" id="wimpy1540">

and again in the <embed> tag:

<embed src=""high" width="520" height="300" ... scale="noscale" ... />

2. Create the IFRAME code.

In the field below, enter the URL to the "myWimpy.html" file you just uploaded to your website and the width and height:

URL to the "myWimpy.html" file:

Width:   Height:



3. Insert the code

The HTML code in the IFRAME Code box above will automatically update based on the information you just entered.

Select the all of the code and "copy" it to your clipboard.

HINT: To copy all of the code, click into the box that contains the code, then with your mouse, right-click and choose "Select All", then right click again and chose "Copy".

Open the page you wish to insert the pop up link into with a text editor (or an HTML editor such as Dreamweaver).

Paste the code anywhere in between the opening <body> and closing </body> tags of the source HTML code in your existing page.

Save the page and re-upload it to your web site.

4. Test

After re-uploading the page you've included the pop up code on, pull the page up in a web browser. You may need to refresh the page in order for your browser to load the updates -- or you may need to empty your browser's cache in order for your browser to recognize the changes you've made on the page.
