Embedding a LightBox Form makes my Wordpress screen blank

    Hi!

    I'm using Wordpress and would like to create a lightbox form to "gate" a webpage for a contest, so that new users will enter their email. 

    Using my custom theme dashboard to modify Wordpress, I'm looking to simply embed the form I've created. When I do this specifically for Lightbox style jotforms my whole page goes blank. 

    I am using a JS Script embed tool that's built-in to my web creator. The strange thing is that it works for a regular jotform embed as is displayed on my page here: monoclebooth.com/news  

    I would simply like to have the form pop up and overlay my webpage before the user can access the content on that page.

    Thanks! And my email is tim@monoclebooth.com

    The embed code I'm using is this: 

        <script src="https://form.jotform.com/static/feedback2.js?3.3.REV" type="text/javascript">

          var JFL_62585058745264 = new JotformFeedback({

            formId: '62585058745264',

            base: 'https://form.jotform.com/',

            windowTitle: 'Photo Booth Contest Entrance Form',

            background: '#00f99e',

            fontColor: '#FFFFFF',

            type: 'false',

            height: 500,

            width: 700,

            openOnLoad: true

          });

        </script>

    My built in Javascript tool by default contains this script:

     <script type="text/javascript"> alert("Enter your js here!" ); </script>

    Whether I enter the embed script between the parentheses or overwrite, the form either does not show up, or all the content on the screen fails to load.

    Cheers,

    Tim

    Please try embedding the lightbox code of your form:

    <script src="https://form.jotform.com/static/feedback2.js?3.3.REV" type="text/javascript">

          var JFL_62585058745264 = new JotformFeedback({

            formId: '62585058745264',

            base: 'https://form.jotform.com/',

            windowTitle: 'Photo Booth Contest Gateway',

            background: '#00f99e',

            fontColor: '#FFFFFF',

            type: 'false',

            height: 500,

            width: 700,

            openOnLoad: true

          });

        </script>

     

     

    But, do not embed it inside the script " <script type="text/javascript"> alert("Enter your js here!" ); </script>". Let us know how it goes.
