How Do I Get This Code To Work?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to set up an exit popup script so that when someone clicks on exit/close a page pops up in the background giving them an option to stay on the page for a special gift of some kind.

 

Once you have the script installed just below the </body> tag then you are supposed to be able to but the following code on any outgoing link so that it doesn't prompt the pop-up. onSubmit="throughlink()"

 

However, I have tried this and as yet, I can't get it to work. Does anyone know of a code I can put into outgoing links so that they do not trigger the popup when clicked on?

 

Or of an alternative way to do what I want to do?

 

Here is the javascript for the popup.

 

<script type="text/javascript">

<!--

var allowPrompt = true;

 

done = false;

window.onbeforeunload = WarnUser;

 

 

function throughlink(){

throughlink = true;

}

 

function WarnUser()

{

if(allowPrompt && throughlink !=true && done !=true)

{

done = true;

// Place your upsell URL here

document.location = " ******* exit page url goes here******** ";

 

 

var message = "WAIT! WAIT! Don't leave empty handed... ";

 

 

 

 

return message;

}

else

{

// Reset the flag to its default value.

allowPrompt = true;

}

}

 

window.setTimeout("resetdone()", 1000);

 

function resetdone(){

done = false;

}

 

function NoPrompt()

{

allowPrompt = false;

}

 

// -->

</script>

To be honest, this isn't something I have any experience with. My impression is that you can't really do what you have in mind -- I think the "window.onbeforeunload" gets called any time a window gets changed, and the only way you can skip this function is adding the "throughlink()" function to all links.

Okay, Thanks
