2. How to Configure the Content Settings
Under the ‘Content’ tab, you will find the ‘Lightbox || Modal’ section.
2.1. Lightbox || Modal
You can use the drop-down menu to choose any of these two layouts: Standard & Fullscreen. For the Standard layout, you can change the width and turn off the auto height option.
You can use the toggle to enable or disable the title. You can use the drop-down to choose a ‘Type’ of content. By Default, it is set to ‘Image’. You can upload your preferred image through ‘Choose Lightbox Image’ option.
If you choose ‘Content’ as type, then you can insert your own text content, media or a shortcode to display as a popup.
You can also choose your ‘Saved Template’ as a content type and use them as popups.
You can use the drop-down menu to select your preferred ‘Trigger’ option. By default, ‘Button Click’ is selected as Trigger.
From the ‘Exit Settings’ mini-section, you can apply changes to your exit button. Under ‘Button Click Settings’ you can choose a button type and modify button text, icon and alignment.
You can change your Trigger to ‘External Element’ as well. For that case, you will find an ‘Elementor Identifier’ field. You can name this whatever you want (with a dot or # since it has to be either a CSS Class or ID).
Navigate to the ‘Advanced’ tab of the element you are going to use as an external element. Then simply copy and paste your Elementor Identifier in the ‘CSS ID’ or ‘CSS Class’ field without the dot or the #.
