    Add the popup HTML code to your webpage. Make sure it's above the close body tag.
    •  <body> <div> <!-- website content start --> </div> <!-- website content ends --> <div class="popup"> <!-- popup content start || copy this to the end of the file--> <div class="popupWindow"> <div class="popup_txt"> Are you 18 years of age or older? </div> <div class="popup_img"> <img src="yes.png" class="popup_img_yes"/> <img src="no.png" class="popup_img_no"/> </div> </div> </div> <!-- popup content ends --> </body> 
    • All the divs are separate containers where we refer them individually by the id and class names.

    Add these jquery scripts in your webpage inside head tag. All script must be written inside script tag.
     <script> $(document).ready(function(){ $( ".popup_img_yes" ).click(function() { $( ".popup" ).fadeOut( 1200 ); }); $( ".popup_img_no" ).click(function() { window.open("http://www.google.com","_self"); }); }); </script>

    Know how it works. The jquery is used to handle the click event on the "yes" and "no" button and their corresponding action.
    • If yes is clicked .fadeOut( 1200 ) method is called; here the popup will fade out in 1.2 seconds.
    • If no is clicked the page is reloaded with the URL google.com using the function window.open. The attribute "_self" indicate that the url is loaded in the same tab.
