How to put a lightbox (pop-up modal) on my page?

How to add a lightbox javascript tool (such as… ) ?

I also have this question, going through and trying to get a shadowbox.js running to open video content in a lightbox window, however it didn’t work. The code should have been accurate as it’s the same code structure that I have on another non-unbounce site. Hopefully they’re working on it. I know from another thread that’ve talked about it being on the release horizon…

Thank you Matalin!

Can you paste the custom code that you used in this portal please.

Hey guys, I’m really sorry this question got missed for so long, hopefully you’ve got things to work. If not…

You should be able to implement any 3rd party javascript with your Unbounce page. A couple of things to be aware of:

  1. If your page has a form in it, then we are automatically including jQuery. We run jQuery.noConflict() as well, which means you will need to reference ‘jQuery’ as opposed to the '' dollar sign. So ("#my-element") will not work, but jQuery("#my-element") will.

  2. You’ll need to host the scripts somewhere. Here’s a great resource for getting the most current script tags for some popular libraries:

Other than that, we’ve been able to implement Fancybox without any problems, let me know if you’re still having trouble and I can take a look at the page in question.



We’ve released a new feature into beta that allows you to build/launch your lightboxes directly within the page builder itself. This new release will allow you to add images, videos, forms and even scripts (such as Google Maps) to your lightboxes.
