What's more, any page can be displayed inside of a popup window, including local files and remote URLs. While some people find popups annoying. They can be really useful for displaying content that needs special attention. Popups can be used for all kinds of things, including login screens, chat sessions, sales alerts, coupons, printables and so much more. Creating a popup requires two pages. A page with the link that launches the popup window.
And a page to appear inside the popup window. For this demonstration, I've already created my two pages. The first page has a link to open the coupon page. And the second page is the coupon that will open inside the popup window. To create a popup window you'll start by creating a null link in the first file using a hashtag in the link field. Next, open up your behaviors panel by selecting Window, Behaviors.
Next, input the width and height dimensions for your popup in pixels. For example, if you want your window to be smaller than the browser window at full screen keep your popup no larger than 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall. I'll make mine 745 by 435. Next you can choose the browser chrome attributes that you'd like your popup window to have. If you want to strip your window of all of the chrome, leave the check boxes blank.
Save your file and test again in a browser window to ensure your top and left measurements are acceptable. Keep in mind that many browsers now include automatic popup blockers. In addition, some users may have installed add-ons or plugins to their browsers that require the user to allow popups manually. As long as you're okay with that, go ahead and start adding popup pages to your website as needed. Used wisely, popup windows are an effective way to share and highlight information that might otherwise be missed.

Q: In "Organic and ethical SEO coding," the author mentions Google+ Authorship. I heard Authorship results are no longer shown in Google search results. Why? Are there benefits to keeping the Google+ Authorship markup on my site?
A: As of September 2014, Google discontinued Google+ Authorship for SEO. The only reason to keep the code on your site would be for Author Rank purposes. See http://searchengineland.com/google-authorship-dead-author-rank-202254 for more information.
