    You can embed your form as a lightbox to your website.

    The instructions on how you can get and/or customize your lightbox embed code are found in this guide, How-to-create-a-lightbox-form

    Here's another guide that may also help you.


    I hope this help. Please feel free to contact us anytime if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you.

    Thanks. I got that to work.  See here: http://max-opp.com/courses-on-writing-books-short-interesting-learn-by-example/


    Suppose I wanted to change this to a non-modal pop-up box--do I just change the piece of code that says lightbox to pop-up?

    To change it to a non-modal pop-up, you will need to re-embed the form to your page using the pop-up code provided in the Publish wizard.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance,
