    I recently came across a thread that discovered a problem embedding a form as a lightbox popup in SquareSpace 7. 

    Can you tell me if that problem has been resolved and what the solution is?

     

    There is no longer a box called 'code' as an option for pages, so I'm wondering where code would get embedded. 

     

    Thanks.

    Hi, dustinwbizqw, 

    Although, I'm not sure about the thread you saw, I can assure you that embedding a form as a Lightbox/Pop-up in SquareSpace 7 is working fine. You may refer to this documentation for reference: Adding-Form-to-Squarespace. Please make sure you use the Code button in your SquareSpace as explained on the documentation.

     

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance or you have any other question about this matter, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help you.

     

    Thank you.

    Hi Mike, 

    As I mentioned, there is no option to add a code box in pages. I have already reviewed those instructions, and the 'code' box is no longer available. 

    Where else would I insert the code?

    Hi Mike, 

    They moved the code to another area and changed the icon. Got it now.

    So it's clear how to add the iFrame code and remove the javascript.

    The instructions in the link you posted above don't explain how to make the form a pop up using the lighbox code (which is a script, not allowed on Squarespace).

    Thanks.

    You can add custom scripts on Squarespace, I found this guide on their help section that might be useful to you. Here is the link: http://help.squarespace.com/guides/adding-custom-html-css-and-javascript

    Let us know if this helps.
