I want to click on a thumbnail and then open a pop up window. However, the pop up window will have additional elements included that will be different that the thumbnail. (link to store, etc.)
Could I just link to another page that has the one image with the additional info?
If so can it be a pop up style that will not require the user to click the "back" button, just simply close the pop up and you are still at the same point in the original web page?

If you want simply a new page to open, leaving the original one open, use the "_blank" version in your links. If instead you want a popup without address bar and so on, you need to use a script: google it with search term" popup"

by inserting a simple script, I think you can do that, try this:

insert image in your page as usual
right click your mouse on the image area and go to image html properties
insert this simple script at before tag of image html properties
<A href="#" onClick="window.open('http://www.yourdomain.com/yourpage.html', '','width=300,height=220'); return false;">

change the page name and the size according your need
www.yourdomain.com/yourpage.html (http://www.yourdomain.com/yourpage.html) is your popup page
that's allthen when you click the image, www.yourdomain.com/yourpage.html (http://www.yourdomain.com/yourpage.html) will be opened in popup window.

Thanks Nyoman for the script. I have filed that where I can access it easily.
navaldesign,
Thank you. That's what I was looking for. A page to open leaving the original open also. I don't mind if there is an address bar.

Now that I have applied it I can see that I will want to go the script route. The header on the new window is too distracting/confusing.

sorry for late reply as you know Bali time is many hours different with your time.
happy to know that you can figure it out.that script is exactly the same script as the one on bluevoda thumbnail gallery, the only difference is when you click the image you will open another page insteade the image itself (larger)

I have a standalone media player that I would like to po-up when someone clicks on the album pic. I've tried your suggestion, & the other (http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/adding-elements-your-website/4653-easy-popup-windows.html?highlight=popup), but nothing works. The HTML page for the media player is showing up, but it's still taking over the original page. Can someone solve this problem?
Blue Voda knows this should've been one of the first add-ons to be included. Luv ya', but it's time to step the game up again.

Amazing code, thanks. I was wondering if there was a way to give people the option to close that same pop-up window after they read what was on it.

Thanks again

The popup code surely works, it has been tested thiusands of times. But of course, you have to create the page to popup correctly. If you have a standalone media player as you say, insert it in the page to popup and it should work. If it opens in the top window, it's a problem of the media player code, not of the popup.

Thanks again

Apart the red X on the upper right hand corner, which will close the window, you can insert a button: go in Insert>Form>Advanced Button> make it on click and select as action to perform: Close the current browser window. Customize the button as to shape, colour, text etc. to meet your requirements

You guys are great! In the interest of NOT asking the same question that's been asked before, I dig a little searching . . . and found exactly the answer I was looking for.

Thank you, NavalDesign!
