    Hello,

    I have checked your website and your form.

    I have seen that your second BOOK NOW button does not trigger the lightbox as the following screen:

    And, your first BOOK NOW button, opens double lightboxes as the following screenshot below:

    I have seen that you did not give any IDs to the buttons. If you trigger the buttons with a class name, only the first one works and second does not. I recommend you to give IDs to the buttons from the HTML codes of your website and trigger them separately. 

    There is no problem with your forms. You only have problem with triggering the buttons.

    Please check and if you need more assistance, let us know.

    Thanks.

    Could you please try following:

    1. Remove the div tag where your script for Lightbox is embedded:

    2. And then try to paste this code instead:

     <script src="https://form.jotform.me/static/feedback2.js?3.3.REV" type="text/javascript"> var JFL_63401987247462 = new JotformFeedback({ formId: '63401987247462', base: 'https://form.jotform.me/', windowTitle: 'ROOM RESERVATION FORM', background: '#c0a375', fontColor: '#FFFFFF', type: 'false', height: 500, width: 700, openOnLoad: false }); </script> 

     <a class="btn lightbox-63401987247462" style="cursor:pointer;

    font: 12px Arial; 

    text-decoration: none; 

    background-color: #7f81bd; 

    color: #333333; 

    padding: 2px 6px 2px 6px; 

    border-top: 1px solid #FFFFFF; 

    border-right: 1px solid #FFFFFF; 

    border-bottom: 1px solid #FFFFFF; 

    border-left: 1px solid #FFFFFF; "> BOOK NOW </a>

     

    Lightbox should work anywhere in your code as long as it is between body tags.

    You can also check it here before you paste in your code: https://jsfiddle.net/t9zys9z4/1/

    Please try and let us know if it is working for you.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Hi Nik,

     

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    The problem is if I use the same code for others different buttons. they are still duplicated even I open click one button.

    https://jsfiddle.net/t9zys9z4/3/

     

    If we dont have solution for that now, I'm also fine to use the pop-up form instead and here is a few questions I wonder if we can do:

     

    1. is there anyway that I can remove section of url link (https://form.jotform.me/63401987247462) appear in the pop-up form?

     

    2. At current, it automatically appears at the top left corner:

     

    Can we set auto the pop-up form auto center aligned with current open page? Like this?

     

     

    Thank you in advance for your help!

     

    Best regards,

    Zao Vu

    Hello,

    Let us first address your lightbox issue and then if the issue persists and you want to show popup window, we will help you with it.

    I did check your webpage where you have embedded your lightbox form. I see that you are loading the same form on click of each "Book Now" button. Please note that you do not have to copy the complete lightbox embed code multiple times. That is the reason when you click on the button, it triggers multiple lightbox window.

    The script part of the lightbox code should be copied only once in webpage and the anchor tag "<a>" should be placed where ever you want the book now button to be displayed.  

    Example:

    <script src="https://form.jotform.me/static/feedback2.js?3.3.REV" type="text/javascript"> var JFL_63401987247462 = new JotformFeedback({ formId: '63401987247462', base: 'https://form.jotform.me/', windowTitle: 'ROOM RESERVATION FORM', background: '#c0a375', fontColor: '#FFFFFF', type: 'false', height: 500, width: 700, openOnLoad: false }); </script> 

                          <a class="btn lightbox-63401987247462 btn-white-outline">BOOK NOW</a>  

    The code which I have copied above in red background should be copied only once in webpage and the code with green background should be copied in all location where you want the button to be displayed.

    I would suggest you to edit your webpage and delete all the light script code code you have added except the first one. You should retain the "<a class=...</a>" part of the code. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Do try out and get back to us if the issue persists.

    Thank you!
