    Can I create a lightbox ftrom a link?

    Asked by make1c on April 23, 2015 at 09:51 PM

    I tried to use your class based href and with an ipad it worked.  but for a windows machine the link was not clickable.

    what I would like is a way to bring up a lightbox with a standard URL.  Is that possible?

    Hello MMichael,

    Please be noted that opening any page in a lightbox window requires some JavaScript code. You should be able to open a form in lightbox window from any URL with the script code. I believe you must have already checked our guide on how to open form in lightbox:  http://www.jotform.com/help/220-How-to-Create-a-Lightbox-Form 

    If you copy a lightbox embed code, you will see the lightbox window appears when you click on a link and it can be any link but requires the style code. 

    Please share the lightbox code which you are using and we will take a look if there is any problem with it. You may also like to share the web page URL where you have embedded your form as well.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
