How To Create A Modal - Pop Up Box


Our Webinars on Wednesdays always have great tips & tools for you to use on your website, this article covers a topic covered on the following Webinar: Create Pop-Up Notifications & Offer Boxes on Your Website - Training Workshop for Directory Software

NOTE: This is a basic Pop Up Modal template that you can use to display content. Keep in mind that some forms, i.e signup forms may need further customization to work on a modal.

Here are the steps in order for you to create and display a Modal Pop Up.

1. Create a widget.

Toolbox >> Widget Manager >> New Widget +

Add the following code on the HTML Text Box:

<div class="modal fade" id="Modaltimed" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
  <div class="modal-dialog">
    <div class="modal-content">
      <div class="modal-header">
        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal"><span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span><span class="sr-only">Close</span></button>
        <h4 class="modal-title" id="myModalLabel">Thank you for visiting us!</h4>
      <div class="modal-body">
        Happy Holidays!
      <div class="modal-footer">
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>

These are the 2 main components:

  • Title
  • Body Text

Now on the JavaScript Text Box you must paste this code:

setTimeout(function() {
}, 2000);

2. You will need to call this widget on the page you are looking to have it shown.

For this example we are going to place the Modal in the /join page.
