How to create a pop-up modal in XenForo?


I'm in the process of creating a full page background ad for a forum system. I'd like to have it so that when a user clicks a button, the JavaScript method that is fired is able to open up a confirmation box asking them if they want to follow through with going to the site. I've been searching for a simple way to do this for about an hour now. Haven't had much luck, so I figure a new thread for this is in order.

How do we create (with code) new pop-up modals similar to the pop-up modals that are shown when a user avatar is clicked, or when a profile is viewed from the thread view page.

You just use it in your template, like so:

<a href="{xen:link 'route/link', $param}" class="OverlayTrigger">{xen:phrase thing}</a>
