Accessing Content From One Page Within Another


#1

Hi there

My client has requested a custom feature which would require a content piece from one page to be displayed within a modal window on another page. The use case is we have a Glossary with terms + explanations and we would like to be able to annotate words across the site so that clicking on them pops open a little dialog with the explanation.

The only idea I have had (which I’ve yet to get working correctly so Im not sure its feasible) is to create a modal window with an iframe in it, that opens the glossary page scrolled to the word using an anchor link. This presents its own set of challenges however I can’t see any other way to do this.

Has anybody achieved a similar result before? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards
Mikey
