    Hello. I have checked your website, and the only page where I've been able to find a Lightbox embedded form is here:


    I see that when you are mousing over that Lightbox link, cursor doesn't change into a hand. This happens because that Lightbox "link" is not technically a real link - it doesn't "link" to anywhere. We can easily fix this technical discrepancy, so that we turn it into an actual link.

    We can do this by adding a href attribute onto your link. This will make web browsers think that the link is pointing to somewhere, and they will automatically use a hand-shaped cursor when you are mousing over the link. In the example of your page linked above, the link you are using now looks like this:

    <a class="btn lightbox-40055179668967" style="margin-top: 16px">Quero a Máquina de Cartão</a>

    We can simply add a target="_blank" href="#" attribute to the link, so that it technically functions as a real link:

    <a target="_blank" href="#" class="btn lightbox-40055179668967" style="margin-top: 16px">Quero a Máquina de Cartão</a>

    If you notice, we added that little part right between <a and class, and we used spaces before and after to separate them.

    Please try adding the attribute as shown above inside your links of Lightbox embedded forms, and kindly let us know how it goes.

    You are kindly welcome, I'm glad that it worked.

    It seems that our forum software has modified my original post a little bit, but luckily you have received correct instructions through email.


    As a clarification for anyone else reading this thread in the future, our forum software has edited my post above. You do not need the part in the link, this was erroneously added by the forum.

    All that is needed to be added to the link is href, followed by equals to sign, double quote, hashtag, double quote. You should also make sure that there is a balnk space before and after the entire attribute that you are adding.


    I hope this clarification helps anyone else reading your support thread in the future as well, and thank you very much davibiel for your feedback. If you need any other assistance regarding your forms, please do not hesitate to simply open a new support thread about it, and we'll do our best to help.
