    How to use an image as my submit button when using the lightbox feature?

    Asked by on December 01, 2012 at 01:20 PM


    I am at a loss as to how to use an image as my submit button when using the lightbox feature. I have an email icon button on my page and I cannot figure out how to put the html code that given for my lightbox form "into" the button.

    Attached is a screenshot with the email button circled in yellow. When I right-click on the email, the Images Properties page comes up choices to pick from in the dropdown menu (see screenshot).

    I appreciate any help as quikly as possible.

    Actually, are you using some sort of CMS for your website? I think you may require more information than what is provided at the link to which I previously referred. Also, what is the URL of the web page within which the lightbox is to appear?

    Mr. abajan,

    I figured it out. I am using a html editor called WYSIWYG Web Builder ( www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com ) and it allows you to place html code where ever you want it by creating a box on the page and entering the html code in the pop-up that comes uo after creating my box. So I created this box and entered the lightbox code in the popup box and changing the button's image path as decribed in your reply example. See screenshot.

    Again, thank you for your help and quick reply!


    P.S. Just realized that post replies do not allow adding a screenshot! So no screenshot, sorry.

    Why? I see the insert image at the top of this reply box, but it wants a url location of the image, etc...too complicated. This needs to be fixed for replies

    Hello Billy.  Replies to threads do not have the image upload option.  But if you have the image uploaded somewhere online, you can get the URL of the image and use it as reference for embedding images in comments.

    Hope this clarifies your concerns.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.
