newWindow(mainHTML, headHTML, footHTML) [Javascript]

Trying out a new Visual Code Editor plugin for WordPress. Below is a Javascript function that I wrote (leveraging jQuery) for popping a modal window. So far, it’s made its way into two websites.

function newWindow(mainHTML, headHTML, footHTML){
if (!mainHTML) { var mainHTML = “”; }
if (!headHTML) { var headHTML = “”; }
if (!footHTML) { var footHTML = “”; }

if (!$(“#popupcontent”).length){
$popout = $(“<div id=\”popup\”></div>”).addClass(“popup”);
} else {
$popout = $(“#popup”).empty();
if (!$popout.hasClass(“popup”)) { $popout.addClass(“popup”); }

$popup = $(“<div id=\”popupcontent\”></div>”);

$close = $(“<a>Close</a>”).addClass(“close”).click(function(){ $(“#popup”).remove();});
$popupHead = $(“<div id=\”popuphead\”></div>”).html(headHTML).prepend($close);
$popupFoot = $(“<div id=\”popupfoot\”></div>”).html(footHTML);

I've made a smart playlist of all the songs with 0 plays. I listen to them because I feel bad for them not because I like the music. I'm THAT guy.

  1. Entities for intended? For example, on lines 16, 17, and 18?

    Seems like you would want literals there, based on the little experience I have with jQuery…

    1. Actually, that’s a bug in the WordPress + plugin relationship. In my actual code, you can rest assured that I have no great collection of < and >. *sigh* I guess I’ll have to keep trying plugins before I can easily post source code samples.
