Recently, I worked on a project for a client who had a special request for custom functionality on their site. Instead of using the standard newsletter e-mail capture, they wanted an additional form that would present in a lightbox after the user entered their e-mail and clicked “submit” for the first form. I did it, using a custom form handler and some jQuery – this is how.
I started by creating the first custom form that mimic’d the standard newsletter e-mail capture format, then implemented a custom submission handler, as described here: “Implementing A Custom Form Submission Handler”. Fairly straightforward, up to the point where I had to sort out how to enable the second form to pop up in the lightbox. It’s easy enough when you’re calling a link from a page: just add the “cblink” class to your link. It’s a bit trickier when you’re leveraging a form submission, so I got a bit more creative.

For many nopCommerce developers, part of the deployment life cycle is the migration of their customized nopCommerce instance from their local development environment to their “live” hosting environment. That segment of the software life cycle can vary greatly according to environment; today, we’ll cover how to migrate a development copy of nopCommerce to your Arvixe hosting account.
First of all, we’re going to go with certain pre-requisites; the first pre-requisite is that you’re using SQL Server for your database, and the second is that you’re using Visual Studio as your development environment. If you’re not using Visual Studio, there will be some differences, based on your localhost setup, but that’s outside the scope of today’s article. Learn More
