In several cases, when designing pages for your site, it may be appropriate to have a ‘close’ option (a link that, when a visitor clicks it, closes the current window). Such pages might include:

 

Success Pages

Thank You Pages

Offer Pages

Pop-ups

Announcements

 

Generally speaking, ‘standalone’ pages, especially those spawned from your main pages, are generally ideal pages on which to feature the “Close Window” script.

 

 

An example, from Amazon.com, of using a close-window script:

 

example_close_window

 

 

Used in conjunction with the “Open Link in New Window” script, this script can be very effective. For example, you might have a link advertising details of, say, a ‘one-time offer, valid for today only’.

 

On clicking this link, causing an advertisement page to pop up in the foreground, it would be very useful to include a “Close Window” link on this new page – closing this offer window effectively returning the visitor to the main site pages.

 

 

Instructions

 

Selecting this script from the list of scripts (how), and clicking the button_widget_wizard_edit_settings button loads the following screen:

 

window_close_window

 

 

There is only one item you need to set for this script, and that’s the link text to be used. Suitable examples might include:

 

Close Window

Return to Previous Page

Back to Main Site

Go Back

No Thanks

 

 

On entering this text, click the button_image_gallery_insert button to insert the script into your Web page at the cursor-point.
