Sorry if this is a noob question. Been looking all around but haven;t find a clue. Basically I would like to use a view based on existing page as a pop-up.

specialpage_controller extends page_controller {

   static $allowed_actions = array (

/popup is displayed using, which includes the default header and footer for that template.

How do I remove that?

Many thanks in advance.

You can just put in the root of the templates folder instead of the Layout folder. Otherwise you'll have to use renderWith in order for it to render just the sub template and not the whole thing.

This is the right thread!

Ah!! I never knew this going to be so easy.

Thank you!! Placing specialpage_popup.css on root template folder do the tricks.
