Lightboxes appear like a pop-up window. They display images, videos, or other elements by filling the screen and dimming out the rest of your landing page. To create a lightbox, follow the steps below.
Learn here how add a lightbox to your landing page.
Create a lightbox
- Log in to your Smartpages account and go to the Lightboxes tab.
- Click Create new lightbox.
- Give your lightbox a name and click Start editing.
- Lightboxes can be edited in the same way as landing pages. Learn here how to use elements and widgets of the editor.
- You can choose from 9 widgets (1) that you can put on your lightbox. Use arrows (2) if you want to undo or redo the editing. Just like the landing page, the lightbox has a desktop and mobile view (3). The mobile view is automatically created based on the desktop view, but this does not work in the other way. We recommend starting with the desktop view and then adjusting the mobile view.
The maximum width of a lightbox is 764 px.
- On the right side of the editor, you will find a toolbar with Lightbox settings (1) and a list of Elements (2).
- When editing, you will find there a toolbar with settings of added widgets. To go back to the lightbox settings, click on the arrow.
- When your lightbox is ready, click the Publish (1) button and then exit the editor (2).
Form on a lightbox
To add a form to your lightbox, drag the Form widget, drop it on the active area of the lightbox and adjust its settings. Learn more about form settings here.
- Your lightbox form will redirect users (after filling out the form) to a thank your page of a landing page to which you will add the lightbox.
- Forms on lightboxes can be used for creating funnels.
