    Hello, I was wondering if you could help me with my form code?

    <!-- Pop-Up -->

    <script src="https://form.jotform.com/static/feedback2.js?3.3.REV" type="text/javascript"> var JFL_60825776348164 = new JotformFeedback({ formId: '60825776348164', base: 'https://form.jotform.com/', windowTitle: 'Domain, Hosting, and Email', background: '#060606', fontColor: '#FFFFFF', type: '1', height: 500, width: 700

    });</script>

    <a id="lightboxdelay" class="lightbox-21357249698871" style="cursor:pointer;color:blue;text-decoration:underline;">United URL</a>

    <script language="JavaScript">

     

    var delayseconds = 5;

     

        function pause() {

     

        myTimer = setTimeout('whatToDo()', delayseconds * 1000)

     

        }

     

       function whatToDo() {

     

    document.getElementById('lightboxdelay').click();

     

        }

     

    window.onload = pause;

     

    </script>

    <!-- End Pop-Up -->

     

     

     

    I can't seem to get it to work no matter how i change it. If the code is correct do i need to add a js fuction to force script onload? Any advise would be awesome. Thank you!

    I would just like to make sure that we are on the same page first, if you do not mind. Could you please confirm to us if you want to use the lightbox popup code, but to have it open up as soon as the page is loaded?

    Based on the code this is the form that is in question:

    http://www.jotform.us/form/60825776348164

    Based on the code it seems that you wish to have it started after 1 second upon page load, but the trick with onload is that if any script uses that it will overwrite the old onload function, but as I have mentioned, I would like to confirm that were are on the same page about the issue first and then we will help you set it all up :)

    what i would like is for the popup to be delayed on page load like say after a few seconds. however the code which i implemented from this post 

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/6753-Does-the-pop-up-or-light-box-option-allow-you-to-set-a-delay-for-the-pop-up-Say-have-it-pop-up-after-2-minutes-vs-immediately-#5

     

    is not working for me. The above pasted, in my original request is the exact code i have included in my header. This does nothing, however i don't see any error in syntax.

    I have toyed with my own .js and have gotten no errors, but i can not seem to get it to open. I know if i set the lightbox to customize open onload it will do so, but when i try to give it a time delay i can not seem to get it to function.

     

    Thank you for you help!

    I just realize the demo page was not working as intended.

    I modified and recreated it here https://shots.jotform.com/jonathan/webtest/Autopop-Lightbox.html

    Please try this one. Let us know how it goes.
