    Need to embed Lightbox code for side button

    Asked by Andy on July 10, 2012 at 12:09 PM

    I am currently evaluating your product.  I am very interested in the features your service has that seems to be a good replacement for others.  The only thing stopping me from making the jump to JotForm is the need to have code provided for a form that works with a side button lightbox element (example - jpjkd . com). It is based on lightbox but does not open from a text link or image.  It opens from a button on the side of the web page.

    Others provide the javascript pointers to their code that creates the side button.  I have multiple sites to develop, and I don't want to have to code my own side button feature.

    Please advise if you provide this service or know of a recommended pre-made side button software for web sites that your service will work with.

    Thank you for your help.
