    I’ve been on the hunt for a good (ideally free) popup/modal window plugin. Popup a form and some info before link to another site. I feel like I’ve tried everything free (they don’t work, break the theme, limited, look bad). I found the bootstrap plugin and thought that my be the best solution as it includes a nice modal function. But I tested it out in the theme based on the titter example (http://twitter.github.io/bootstrap/javascript.html#modals) … button looked good but no action when selected.


    Note: The bootstrap-css plugin changed the form style and breadcrumb style of the theme … but will look into that if I can get the modal working.

    Any suggestions to get this working?

    If not, any suggestions on a plugin that anyone knows works well with the theme? Ideally free but willing to purchase at this point.



    Hi shawjared,

    Not that I know of no. You could probably create one using bootstrap pretty quickly but my guess would be that most plugins are going to be a bit feature heavy and will need tweaking.

    Another option is that you could use the built in lightbox plugin and add your form to an outside html page on your domain and then pull it in with the lightbox popup via an iframe.


    “To do so, simply: Create a link (). Add the rel attribute “prettyPhoto” to it (rel=”prettyPhoto”). Change the href of your link so it points to the webpage you want to open. Then add “?iframe=true” as a parameters in your HREF so prettyPhoto knows to open the content in an iframe. Then add the width and height as parameters in your HREF (&width=100&height=100). Please note that the dimensions can be percent based.”
