I would like to place a link on my login page for guest. I want them to be able to download an application that we have in google drive. This application once filled out and mailed in to us allows us to then determine if they are members of our forum.
I have attempted to use "login popup" to put this information onto but nothing changes. I don't know if the popup is not working or if I am not doing something right.

Hi Very Happy

So you just want them to be provided with a download link, right? Well, there is an easy way in order to do it so please follow these steps:

ACP < Modules < Widget Management < Create a new widget < Paste this code before saving:

Code:
<a href="URL Link of the application" id="appl1">Anything you wish inserted here like a text.</a>

After you're done saving the code, make sure you click on their permissions and set it to guest only Perms<--- That's the sign for it.

And then add this in your CSS:

Code:
#appl1 {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: 0px;
  line-height: 16px;
  right: 5px;
  z-index: 999;
  opacity: 0.8;
  width: #px;
  border-radius: 3px;
  }

#appl1:hover {
  opacity: 1;
  }

Remember, change the width: #px; to either a number with % (Ex: 100%), or a number with px sign (Ex: 500px) or an adjusting (Ex: width: auto;) size. If you wish to add a height, just add this in the CSS:

Code:
height: #px/%/auto;

^ Same rules apply as that of the width's.

If you wish to use anything with a background, then please follow this:

Code:
#appl1 {
    position: fixed;
    bottom: 0px;
    line-height: 16px;
    right: 5px;
    z-index: 999;
    opacity: 0.8;
    width: #px;
    height: #px;
    background-image:url(Image link here);
    background-color: Any color you want;
    padding: 2px;
    margin: 2px;
    border-radius: 3px 3px 3px 3px;
    }

#appl1:hover {
    opacity: 1;
    }

Regards,

Hi Very Happy

That's why I posted a sample code lol. You could just modify it to your liking.

And the CSS can be found in: Administration Panel < Display < Colors < Stylsheet

That's where you paste the code Smile. Also, if you want to learn how to style it more, please consult this: http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp

Ok I got that to work but now I am also needing to add a widget that includes a document without a link. This document is saved on my computer. If I was to share this document in an email it would be in an attachment.

Hi Very Happy

So you're aiming for an attachment document? Well, I actually tried uploading a file as an attachment to the forum but I can only do so in a post Sadand it didn't even upload much because I didn't realize I have no storage space nor do I have the intention on wasting my money for them at the moment e.e" ...

Anyway, if you have attachments running for you, try and see on how to upload those attachment and if you incorporate them as a widget, given of course that you can't find a way to upload them other than in a message, there is a possibility that you have to incorporate an <a href=" " /> tag in your widget :/.

If you wish not to use "attachments", you can always upload a file in a hosting website such as MediaFire.
