    How to make a pop-up form

    Asked by eehowe11 on October 11, 2016 at 04:05 PM



    When I embed my form into my website (at teachable.com) it looks great, but I'm trying to make it pop-up.  when I change it from embed to pop-up (under "publish"), it suddenly doesn't work anymore.  of note, my website uses html, not javascript....does that matter?  How can I fix this to make it a pop-up?

    Our pop-up embed code creates a link which loads the form in a pop-up window. It does not load the pop-up automatically.

    In case you would like to load the form in the pop-up once the page is loaded, you may try a Lightbox embedding option with enabled 'Open on Page Load' parameter.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Does this mean I create the lightbox popup only or create the form first then add the lightbox..


    I am confused...I don't want my pop up to be a form, it is for marketing to get the looker to purchase


    I want a popup on this site
