Step One:

Make up your popup code per usual with PopUp Maker.

Important: Remember to use a different Function Name and PopUp Name for each one if you are using more than one popup in a given page.

Insert the script(s) in the head of the page, just as you usually do.

We'll show an outline of how this all goes together at the end — it's fairly easy to do.

Step Two:

For each popup — after the popup scripts you inserted in Step One — then you will insert a call for a timer, like this:

setTimeout("doPopUp1()", 15000);

Call the popup function as shown in red.  The 15000 shown in this sample is how long to wait before launching the popup.  The figure is in milliseconds (1000 =  1 second), so, for example, the sample above is set to wait 15 seconds before launching the popup.

General Outline:

This shows how it will all go together in the <head> section of your page.  Here, we show how to do two such poppers with different start times.

// PopUp Maker 5.0 by
// PopUp Window Script
// Place this script in the <head> of your page.

function doPopUp1(){ doPopUp1Window = etc. ...); }

</script> <script> // PopUp Maker 5.0 by // PopUp Window Script // Place this script in the <head> of your page.

function doPopUp2(){ doPopUp2Window = etc. ...); }

</script> <script> setTimeout("doPopUp1()", 15000); </script> <script> setTimeout("doPopUp2()", 30000); </script> </head>

Thus, we have two different popups — doPopUp1( ) and doPopUp2( ) — which will fire respectively at 15000 milliseconds (15 seconds) and 30000 milliseconds (30 seconds).

To do more than two — just follow the overall pattern.

This was written to try to make it as clear as possible to newcomers to the art.  More experienced coders can clean up the code by removing the // comment lines and all but the very first <script> and very last </script> tags around the code, as they're redundant.
