I don't think PHP will do that on it's own, you need to include some javascript for it.

<!-- Begin
function popUpLogin(URL) {
day = new Date();
id = day.getTime();
eval("page" + id + " =, '" + id + "', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=1,lo
cation=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=1,width=200,height=200,left = 100,top =

Then call it with <a href="javascript:popUpLogin('/filename.php')">

For the record, I nicked this off the web somewhere, but the owner's web page seems to be long gone.

Your question has already been answered in the thread above (a thread that you started yourself).

I don't know why you are double posting.
