Opening article in "lightbox"?


Is it possible to create a site where you click on an article and it shows up in a “lightbox”?

Similar to how theses site do it (on desktop):

Any ideas or tips would be welcome!

Same in here, i need that too!

Looks cool! Though, I doubt that it is a simple lightbox.

Yes, although it’s not called a lighbox. It’s called a modal. You can refer to this article by Webflow. The article doesn’t show exactly what you’re looking for, but you can tweak it to how you need it.

It seems to me that is using some sort of CMS — the modal is actually a different page, you can confirm this by opening a modal and looking at the address bar. I thought of how to do something like that: create a collection list modal and parse information from a database — however, I’m not sure it will open up as a separate page (appears so if a user looks at the address bar).

Sorry if my explanation sucks, haha.

That is exactly what I need, thank you so much! Also, do you know any ready-only link for this link modal?

I see what you’re saying. You might be able to pull that off my manipulating some things in Webflow, but I can’t guarantee. But it looks like Dribbble uses a script to do that.

Thanks for the reply, Joseph!
