PopBox For Elementor


PopBox for Elementor allows the creation of beautiful templates with Elementor Page Builder for use with the included Popbox overlay script.

An Admin menu will be added on your WordPress Dashboard sidepane named PopBoxes. This is the custom post type (CPT) you’ll use to create the content of the PopBoxs.

A custom module will also be added to Elementor Page Builder edit screen to be used for the customization of the trigger button embedded on your page.
Simply select one of the PopBox content created via the CPT to be shown when the trigger button is clicked.

WP Elevation Studio Troy Dean shows us how to use PopBox for Elementor to create easy and stunning popup forms:


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress

Go to settings > permalinks and click save. (you need to do that in order to register the popup post types.)

Breaks site. “Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500” for “admin-ajax.php” and causes Elementor to never finish loading when you try to edit a page with elementor.

(this review is strictly for the video lightbox option) Terrible plugin. Hasn’t been updated in over a year and there are so many bugs. For one, if you choose the auto play setting, it auto plays when the website loads, not when you click on the button to make the lightbox pop up. Also, when closing the lightbox, video still plays in the background when it shouldn’t be (if on autoplay). Secondly, choosing a thumbnail picture doesn’t work. When putting a thumbnail picture on the video, it is overly big and just not accurate. Terrible plugin from a non-committed developer. Please don’t make plugins you won’t commit to! Or charge money for the plugin so you can be committed to it! What a waste of time.
