Support » Plugin: WP Advent » How to use URL instead of lightbox

  • Hello,

    I would like to send my customers to our special offers when clicking on a number in the advent calendar.

    Now, when they would click on a date, they would see a pop-up lightbox. Instead of that, I would like to put an URL into the dates, so that when they click on a date, they will be redirected to the page of the special offer.

    Is it possible to do that, and how?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Eva,

    I’m afraid this is not possible at the moment. I don’t think that we can implement this feature within the next days.
    But I’m putting it on our list of feature-wishes for the future.

    Thanks for your answer.

    The alternative would be to put a link in the pop-up lightbox. However, links don’t work in the lightbox.

    How could I redirect customers to the right product?

    Add an image of your product to the Lightbox and then add a link to the image.

    The lightbox is 900×506 so if you make the image of size 890px x 480px it will fill the lightbox. ( I notice if the image is larger then you get scroll bars).
    The image you use can also have a product description as well as a picture of the product etc. This way the whole image becomes a big button.

    Yepp, basically that is the way for now. We’re thinking about adding a way to use remote urls as calendar day views, but we’re still not sure how to create the interface for that. It’s already not all that intuitive to use right now, so we want to solve that problem first before adding more functionalities.
