Displaying Text With HTML Formatting In Lightbox
I’m wondering if there was any way to utilize the Lightbox shortcode and instead of content like an image or streaming video to just have text in a frame.
So, when I click on the button on the page, I want to have a Lightbox pop up and even be able to specify the height and width of the frame just displaying text in the frame itself. The code I was trying to use was:
[su_lightbox src="Text here with some <a href='http://www.website.com' target='_blank'>links here</a> and some more<br>and some more<br>stuff everywhere."][su_button]Example[/su_button][/su_lightbox]
And I don’t think that’s the right way to do this. I did also try the
[su=lightbox type="inline"method and was met with identical results.
I have about 14 lines (separated by
"<br>") and when I look at the preview of the page, the first 3 lines are gone, the fourth line – which should be text that is hyperlinked – is just plain text, and the rest of the content renders fine. The links display and act properly (which I was nervous about because being within the entire src=” ” section having to use just a single ‘ mark), but are displayed right there on the page. And in line with the last line of the content is this:
And directly in line with that is the button I had, which renders as it should look. Now the weird part is that when I click on the button or on any line on the page between lines 6 and the final line, the page darkens as it normally does with a Lightbox, and the first three missing lines of text are displayed all the way to the left of the page, vertically centered, and even selectable. If I try to select the text, the page goes back to normal, though. I double- and triple-checked all my code to make sure I closed every bracket and quotation marks, and even used an HTML checker and everything is fine.
Wondering if there is any way to create a frame for text to be displayed as a Lightbox using the shortcode (or even the long code).
