Pop a window for flash viewing?

I inserted a flv file into my content.  Is it possible to have this file pop a new window to be viewed in versed playing directly in the current page?

Thanks in advance.

You could create a separate page, add your HTML content including the embed code for the FLV and then link to this page from another page. When you create the link, you can select the "open in new window" Target option.

Joe, thanks for the helpful infomration.  One quick follow up on your suggestion.  How do I create a page that isn't linked to another page within mojoPortal?  All I see is the ability to create pages at the root, or as a child of another page from the add a page function.

 Thanks again.

All pages must have a parent but you can successfully "hide" a page by removing the checkmark from the "Show In Sitemap" and "Include In Menu" options on the page setttings.

Joe,

Got it working with your recommendations - Thanks!

Two additional questions

  1. Is it possible to control the dimensions of the window that is opens?
  2. Is it possible to put a "close this window" control on the page to close the window when completed on the page?

Thanks again!
