Lightbox for Gravity

  1. I have read through a number of the posts in the forum on embedding a gravity form so that it pops up as a lightbox upon someone clicking an image or linked text but I am still at a loss.

    Can someone please provide me the steps necessary to achieve this. Basically, I just want to hide the contact form and use a simple image or text to call the form as a lightbox.

    I have downloaded easy fancybox and facnybox but cannot figure out how to properly utilize these plugins in conjunction with gravity forms.

    Your help is appreciated.

  2. This is the best explanation I know of:
    http://websitesetuppro.com/how-to-open-gravity-forms-form-in-a-lightbox/

    That was not written by Gravity Forms / Rocketgenius, but it seems to work.

  3. I have tried what is recommend on two different sites and am getting two different results. On one site, nothing at all happens except that the page changes to fancyboxid=1 but nothing pops up. This site is: http://educational-expo.com/webcast-seminars the hyperlink in the body of the site.

    The second site looks like it tries to do something but I cannot figure out what is going on when you click the link. This site is: http://physiciancredentialingservices.com/getting-started-with-credentialing/

    Are there settings for fancybox as I cannot find where to modify them in my control panel.

    Thank you for your help.

  6. I followed the same tutorial, but I am wondering how I can attach my main stylesheet to the modal pop-up. I get that we strip it down to a simple page to get rid of all the stuff attached to the standard wordpress page, but I would like to keep my style elements (font, sizes, etc.).

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

  7. timichaud,

    this did it for me:
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='theme-styles' href='<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/style.css' type='text/css' media='all' />

  8. I have another question. I want to force login for access, but the background clicked closes the box.
    I need to....
    1) remove the close onclick function.
    2) close window when submit button is clicked.

    Here is a url:
