    A few 'beginners' questions please

    Hi I wonder if anyone could help me with a few things I need to do on my site please;

    1. When a visitor clicks on a link I want them to be taken to another page on my site AND a new browser window to open for another website (I know I could create pop ups) but I would rather have the 2 pages alongside each other.

    2. I want to create a newsletter sign up box

    3. I want to create an 'add us to your favourites' which automatically brings their favourites box up so all they have to click is "add this page".

    I hope this all makes sense. Any help is greatly appreciated

    for what purpose? generally, this bugs users.

    this will be dictated by what kind of server and what database you have available. or you can use a service. or your host might have an option available.

    Well I will be explaining something on one side whilst they look at what i;m explaining on the other side of the screen. Its not for pop up ads or anything like that, its a relevant to what they will be visiting the site for

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you just need to add a target=_blank... This should open up the page to a separate browser window and should bypass most pop-up blockers.

    Example:

    <a href="www.yoursite.com/otherpage.php" target="_blank">Other Page</a>
