    Unable to auto popup a lightbox form

    Asked by bayviewboom on February 10, 2015 at 02:06 PM

    ok, wrapping this sample in PRE tags didn't work. Would be nice if jotform provided some means of displaying raw script/html in these support pages, since... that's what we do here....

    The pre tag is not intended for this purpose, this tag is used to define preformatted text so the browser shows the text inside the tags just as you have typed it. 

    In order to use the scripts detailed on the guide you need to copy/paste them on the web page where you want to show the lightbox form. If you need further assistance, please provide the URL of the web page where you have included the script so we can check it.

    Thank you.

    Ok, my apologies. I didn't see you other posts.

    Please try to use the following script:

    <script src="https://www.jotform.com/static/feedback2.js?3.2.5340" type="text/javascript">
      var JFL_42252369650152 = new JotformFeedback({
         formId:'42252369650152',
         base:'http://www.jotform.us/',
         windowTitle:'Sign up for our ocassional newsletter. No spam!',
         background:'#FFA500',
         fontColor:'#FFFFFF',
         type:false,
         height:600,
         width:500,
         openOnLoad:false
    });
    </script>

    Please note that you also need to add the anchor tag and the script that will load the form after 5 seconds.

    You can see it all working here: https://shots.jotform.com/raul/513390/lightbox.html

    If you have further questions, please let us know.
    Thank you.

    Hrm, so help me out. First, how did you add code to this forum without your tags getting stripped out? You went into 'source code' mode?

    i already have the script on my website for the floating button. Now i'm trying to add the timed form-loader. It sounds like you're saying to add a link tag, but i don't want a link tag, i want the floating button. 

    thx

    I tested the code and it is opening after 5 seconds:

    I see that you have another thread, it is more effective to use only one to contact us.

    Let us know if we can assist you further.

    I could not view the proper source code of the page from here http://www.bayviewboom.org/

     

     

    it was actually here http://www.bvhpradio.org/boom.php

    From what I can see on the page source code, you were instead using the Feedback code -- not the Lightbox code.

    I suggest you redo and follow the user guide https://www.jotform.com/help/203-How-to-Auto-popup-a-Lightbox-Form

    Get the Lightbox code also instead

     

    Please let us know if still not successful.

    Thanks.
