    Creating a pop up form in my web page

    Asked by NEMCONTACT on April 03, 2017 at 01:12 PM

    I am trying to create a pop up form for my site but it seems to only work as an element on my page (as being a part of my page). Do you know how id be able to change it?

     

    Thanks

    If you would like to create a pop-up form, rather than adding the form directly to the page, here is how to do so:

    This would create a little box in your page that can be clicked in order to popup the form.

    Hey David,

     

    Thanks for your help. I tried adding the code to the CSS section in the Form Designer, for both a pop-up and for a lightbox, and neither one worked. On my site, i added a button with the link being the URL provided by JotForm, but it'll either open as a new tab or change the window for my site to the form. Im unsure what to do. You could try it out, its the button on the bottom of the home page. Thanks

    The lightbox code would be added to your webpage, not to the form.  Replace the link to your form with the lightbox code and it will add pop-up form to the page.

    Hey David,

     

    Would you be able t point me as to where i have to add the codeÉ Im not sure if you`re familiar with the Weebly configuration, but i can either embed code onto the page itself, or i can open the CSS for the whole website and insert it there. However, i am no coder, so i am quite unfamiliar with the latter option. If you could give me some detailed instructions that would be greatly appreciated. (To be clear, the form opens through a button, not text on the page, so Im not sure if embedding the code will work).

    In your Weebly web builder, find the "Embed Code" tool and add the Lightbox there.
