Configuring the Lightbox widget:

Content:

Lightbox (Button):

The very first setting you will see by navigating the Content section is Lightbox. Under the Content settings, you can choose the lightbox type as either a button or an image. Depending on your selection, different settings will be displayed for each option.

If you choose the button as the type, you’ll have the option to add a button name. Additionally, you can include a button icon and control its position.

Button type Lightbox:

Lightbox (Image): 

Just like the button type, you can also select Image as the type. Opting for the image type enables you to include a clickable image that triggers the popup when clicked.

Once you’ve selected the image type, you can add a clickable image and adjust its resolution to your preference.

  • Video Type: Alternatively, if you want to feature a video, select the video icon. With the video type, you have the flexibility to add videos from three different sources: YouTube, Vimeo, and self-hosted. You’ll be prompted to provide the video URL based on your chosen source. 
  • Video Start and End Time: You can specify the start and end times for the video. For instance, if you wish for your video to begin playing after 30 seconds, you can input “30” into the Start Time box. Similarly, you can set an end time to control when the video stops playing.
