Hey guys, so we can't use javascripts because it can only be enabled by admins.  This means Dr. Berry or other admins are the only ones able to enable javascripts, so we're going to have to work something out i guess. But just so you guys have the script I'm posting it here.

So here is the javascript to get a popup window to a different URL.  The text will also automatically be bolded by the script and when your mouse goes over it it will turn from black to red.


Definition Javascript


To use it just insert the URL you want to be brought up in the first underlined area , and insert the word your using in the second underlined area I'm pointing too:



If you want to see what it can do go to this URL and click on the My Popup text:



So the script above is for a URL popup.  If you just want text use use the following updated script


Definition javascript updated


The word you want defined is still the same.  Just use the area inbetween the win3.document.write(' bla ') to write what you want to show up in the popup.


A working script:

Just to add on to this, we can easily create a simple web-page so it posts a definition or something by changing the URL at "#1."
I'm thinking a page on our st gregory server may be the easiest, so we can try that.
