This is a simple module that enables site builders to use the built-in Overlay for non-admin pages.

This means that you can use the overlay for doing popups without adding yet more javascript libraries to your site.

This module provides a simple UI for defining paths to appear in the overlay, but developers can use it to define paths too, see the overlay_paths.api.php file in the module for details.

Common problems

Note that you will need to give all the roles that you wish to use the overlay, permission to do so, the permission to give them is: 'Access the administrative overlay'.
