Does a popup with a link to adobe's download site automatically open up if the user doesn't have Adobe or does it need to be coded? If so, how do you code this?

Didn't get what you are after. Could you re-phrase your question please. Thanks

Adobe reader link?

Don't know if I have much of an answer for you, but hopefully I can clear up the question...

I think you're asking if the link to download Adobe Acrobat Reader can be coded to only display if the user doesn't already have the software installed? (i.e. if the user does have Acrobat Reader installed they won't see the link).

Not sure if it's possible to do this (I don't recall seeing it done anywhere else). AFAIK the link is always visible whether the software is installed or not.

Adobe reader link?

On the other hand, if you're asking if, when you try to open a PDF file and you don't have Adobe Acrobat, it will ping you off in the right direction...
Not sure, don't think it will. (I've always had a version installed!)

Best to leave a static link on the page to the download page, with some words along the lines of "You need this to view these pages"

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.
