1.Create a new menu and you can call it Hidden. In your new menu, make a link to your Article of the new pop out page.
2.Create a temporary menu module for the hidden menu and then assign it somewhere to be able to open the article and copy your link.
3.disable the hidden menu after saving the link.
4.Now you can link the front page image to the new page using this code:
<p><a href="http://Your link" target="_blank"><img src="images/yourfrontpageimagelink.jpg" border="0" alt="image descrip" /></a></p>
5.If you want the modules assigned to your new page, assign them by opening the module
