    I have created a form that I would like to use as a Lightbox form embedded on my site. The problem is, as it stands, it simply appears as clickable text and I wanted to be able to click a button to open up the embedded Lightbox form.

    If it matters, this is for a Wordpress site.

    Really hoping you can make some suggestions.

    Kind regards,
    Vlad

    Hi Vlad,

    This is doable in Jotform. Please check this similar thread

    Here's how to create a lightbox form. How to Create a Lightbox Form

    To use a button, just simply use the lightbox class from your lightbox embed code on your buttons code. Example:

     

    <script src="//max.jotfor.ms/min/g=feedback2" type="text/javascript">

    new JotformFeedback({

    formId:'30452332860952',

    base:'http://jotformpro.com/',

    windowTitle:'Title Me',

    background:'#FFA500',

    fontColor:'#FFFFFF',

    type:false,

    height:500,

    width:700

    });

    </script>

    <input class="lightbox-30452332860952" type="button" value="Click Here" />

     

     

    Please let us know if you need further assistance doing it.

    Thanks.

    Thank you, I have tried this and it worked for me!

    My only question is how to control the appearance of this button? Can I do one of two things?

    1) Use some code to control the size, colour, shape of the button and colour of the font?

    2) Use an image in place of a button?

    Thank you,
    Vlad

    Hi Vlad,

    Glad to hear it works for you. :)

    1. It is possible with CSS, you can insert style attribute on the button code. This method is called Inline CSS.

    Example:

    <input class="lightbox-30452332860952" type="button" value="Click Here" style="font-size:16px;background:#01A2A6;border:none;padding:8px;color:#fff;" />

    Result: http://jsfiddle.net/gw4yjona/

    2. Image is also possible as long as you'll use the class that will call the lightbox form.

    Example:

    <img class="lightbox-30452332860952" src="http://www.yoursite.com/image/your_button.png" />

    Just replace the sample URL on this code with your button image URL.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!
