hello everyone, been trying to figure this one out to no avail. i'm creating a portfolio website where the homepage contains images as links. when the user clicks on the links, instead of load to a new page, i would simply like a transparent overlay to occur, so that you can still see the content of the new page laid over the homepage. the user can get back to the homepage if they click on any area that isn't content from that page (over the homepage areas). the image links on the homepage should also have hover states, which i know can be done using jquery fade in/out. i'm relatively new to js but i just no idea where exactly to start. i'm not sure if the overlay is done in jquery or straight js. a similar effect can be found here at this site: studio-output.com any ideas on just where to start would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
