I want to launch a dialog when a user enters our website prompting them for how they learned about us. It's a simple form. Can anyone tell me how I can accomplish this?

Please try this

   1. window.onload = function () {  
   2.     REDIPS.dialog.init();          // initialize dialog  
   3.     REDIPS.dialog.op_high = 40;    // set maximum transparency to 40%  
   4.     REDIPS.dialog.fade_speed = 18; // set fade spead (delay is 18ms)  
   5. };

I've tried several of the joomla extensions. I think I have some sort of javascript conflict because the only one that works is one that I don't care for. The others, nothing happens when the page loads.
