    Is it posible to add a delay to opening of the lightbox jotform?

    Asked by dosualdocolucci on July 17, 2015 at 05:34 PM


    I wonder if there is a way to apply a delay in lightbox format. Only about 3 or 4 seconds after the page loads completely. So the user could quickly see the content before the screen goes dark with the form created in lightbox format

    Is it possible?

    Do try to add this code to your website Daniel:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="//d2g9qbzl5h49rh.cloudfront.net/static/feedback2.js?3.3.7874">

        var JFL_51906328773664 = new JotformFeedback({
    }, 3500);


    It is practically the same code as you have it currently on your website, but it should start the display process after 3.5 seconds (thought that it would be best to go between the two :) )

    Please do let us know how it goes Daniel, and if you wish to change the timing, just alter the bold part, but remember to copy the entire blue part the first time to your website, instead of the current code.

    Hi I'm not sure where to add this info in my codes.  I have created a lightbox that I like but I want it to start a few seconds after the first page loads.  Not sure where to add it.
