Hoping For Help With an Unusual Request

Postby youradrenalinefix » 30. January 2013 10:23

Hi Everyone,

Lately I've been watching a bunch of PHP tutorials of which I downloaded xampp and have been using successfully in following tutorials on my local computer and I thank you all for helping me get my xampp setup and working properly with the folders I was using so HUGE THANKS on that one guys.

The reason I write today is to ask the great minds here if you guys wouldn't mind sharing some basic coding principles with me:

If you're in the xampp phpMyAdmin and you click the button at the top labeled "Users" then click "Add User" you'll find that the add user fields look like something that floats over the top of the page. VERY COOL.

I'd like to have a similar form appear above any page of my site when a user clicks an "Add Listing" button. (I have a free classifieds) but I don't know how to do this.

I can work on figuring out the CSS and <form> </form> stuff, I just don't kow how to make the whole thing appear over a page.

I'm feeling that this is something like <div class="addListing"></div> where you leave that div empty and placed on every page (such as in an include) then when the user clicks the "Add Listing" button (and an if() statement returns true) this box would then appear within that div

I know I'm close to being on track with how to do this, I just don't know how to convert dreams to reality and if anyone wouldn't mind sharing with me how I could accomplish this, I'd be most appreciative and I thank you all once again!!

Take a look at JQuery UI Dialog.

Thats the module phpmyadmin uses too. JQuery does have a huge community and many code examples.
