Can TMP work across frames, I mean if I have my menu in a narrow left frame and want the popups to cross over the border to the main frame
Nop. That feature is supported by GOLD version only. See:
And what is it that I pay for?
How many html pages can I use it on?
Can I use it on different websites?

Is that enough to use Gold?
