Adding a lightbox
There are three types of lightboxes that you can add to your site:
A center lightbox that appears in the middle of your page.
A side bar lightbox that appears on the left or right of your page.
A full-width lightbox that appears on the top of bottom of your page.
Accessing your lightbox
As your lightbox is not placed directly on your site page, you won't see it in the regular Editor view.
You can find your lightboxes in a tab in the Pages menu. Each time you want to edit your lightbox, you can find it there and enter Lightbox Mode.
When you have finished editing your lightbox, click Exit Lightbox Mode on the top left of the Editor:
Designing your lightbox
You can add any element you want to your lightbox. Just make sure that the element you are adding is smaller than the lightbox so that it fits inside it. Click here to learn more.

Creating an overlay for your lightbox
The overlay is the space around your lightbox. It blocks out the rest of your site page when your lightbox is open to keep your visitors' attention on the lightbox. This lets them focus on the lightbox. You can choose the background of the overlay. Click here to learn more.
Choosing how your lightbox is closed
There are three ways that your site visitors can close the lightbox:
Previewing your lightbox
You can see what your lightbox looks like by previewing your site. Remember, if you have set your lightbox to appear on specific pages, you need to access those pages in preview to see your lightbox appear. If you have linked your lightbox from elements on your site (such as a button) make sure to click the button in preview mode to see your lightbox in action!
