Modal Windows

Modal windows

Modal windows are in-page popup windows that allow you to show content to visitors without them leaving the page. They can be used for hidden in-page content, videos, images, image galleries, or external webpage content.

The key to creating a modal window is adding the class 'venobox' to your link. Additionally, you must add 'data-type="xxx"', where xxx is iframe,inline,youtube or vimeo. Images and image galleries don't require a data-type. Galleries do require a 'data-gall="galleryName"' to cluster the images together.
