    Im aware of that. Thx
    Im trying to initiate a lightbox form when a submit button or a button is hit.
    I tried placing the light box link into a HTML box within a jot form. Lightbox does not work. The text link shows up but no link.
    I go back to check the code and most of it is missing.

    As far as I know this can be accomplished with CSS code, once you get your light box code:

    Paste it in a text editor and look for the "style" property:

    Once you remove it you could try pasting the following CSS code:

    cursor:pointer;
    font: bold 11px Arial; 
    text-decoration: none; 
    background-color: #EEEEEE; 
    color: #333333; 
    padding: 2px 6px 2px 6px; 
    border-top: 1px solid #CCCCCC; 
    border-right: 1px solid #333333; 
    border-bottom: 1px solid #333333; 
    border-left: 1px solid #CCCCCC; 

    Copy the whole code and embed it you webpage, this is how it would look like:

    Hope this helps you, let us know if you have more questions.

    Hi Tristan,

    Just so you know, when you respond to this thread, it will be queued at the very bottom so you if you need an urgent answer, please keep your first reply and wait for our return.

    With regards to the lightbox codes, please let us know the webpage where you place it so we can check. It's working to our end so I am sure there's something that prevents the codes from working. Maybe your current website builder doesn't allow scripts or the way how you embed it is incorrect.

    Thank you!
