    Hi Enfold Team,

    Please look at the link provided below.

    I am trying to have the video play in a lightbox once the user clicks on the button.

    However, if I choose “to open it in same window” then it just takes the user to that website where the video is and does not open it up in the lightbox.

    How can I achieve that effect of the video opening in a lightbox using the button element?




    Hey NR1234,

    Add a video element or a color section element with the background video on a new page.

    Add the page URL to the button element with ?iframe=true at the end.

    This will open the video in a lightbox.

    For a detailed explanation please check the button usage section.

    Best regards,



    I am trying to make this work. It almost works, but something goes wrong. I have the link to the page to the full video. In Safari, though, it just clicks to the About Page for some reason, and in Chrome, the Lightbox opens with the video briefly… and then goes to the About Us page, which is weird. Any ideas? Would really love to make this work as I am using a color section BG video but don’t want the entire video to play. Want to offer a longer video if the user wants to see it with a button.

    Thanks for the update. You can actually use the video url as the link and it will open in a lightbox. Do you really need to open the video inside a page?

    Best regards,


    That worked putting the link to video from youtube and adding true at end. Thanks!


    Hey msutherin,

    I’m glad this was resolved. If you need additional help, please let us know here in the forums.
