Does any one know how to get the videos to pop out and fade the background - like the new welcome vid on the YOLA site? Any help would be great... thanks!

Hello reptileparty

I believe you can use something like a modal box. Please take a look at this thread for more information: Can you make pop up text boxes?

I hope this answers your question. If not, or if you had something different in mind, please let me know.

I think Mediabox may be what you're looking for: http://iaian7.com/webcode/Mediabox
I haven't tried it on Yola yet so let me know if it works for you.

Thanks Sanja and Diane.

The page that Diane sent was along the lines of what I have in mind. How do I go about uploading all the stuff the the server if I am using yola, would i upload it like a file? I have not used scripts as such before, any insight would be loved dearly. :) Thanks, -Rob

Took a quick scan--don't have time to test it out though I plan to later. You will need Yola Silver for this. Upload two js files, a swf file and a css file into your file manager just as you would any file, also all images provided. Make sure the urls in these files reflect the proper path i.e.: resources/yourjsfile.js
Then you will need the html provided on the mediabox site that you paste into an html widget. It's a bit complicated but the site does provide instructions--the main thing is to have all your urls correct. There's a lot of info on the site, so you may want to decide what type of video file you plan to use and go right to that spot in the instructions. Hope this helps.
