First, let’s understand why adding an exit button to your lightbox is important. While AWeber Lightbox is a powerful tool for capturing leads, it’s also essential to respect your visitors’ preferences.

Now, let’s dive into the technical details of adding an exit button to AWeber Lightbox:
Step 1: Accessing the Lightbox Code
To add an exit button to AWeber Lightbox, you’ll need to access the code for your lightbox form. Log in to your AWeber account and navigate to the “Sign Up Forms” section. Locate the lightbox form you want to edit and click on it.
Once you’re on the form editor page, find the “Publish” tab and click on it. Here, you’ll see the code for your lightbox form under the “Embed” section. Copy the code and save it for later.
Step 2: Modifying the Lightbox Code
Now that you have the code for your lightbox form, it’s time to modify it to add the exit button. Open your preferred code editor or HTML editor and paste the code you copied earlier.
Inside the code, locate the closing </form> tag. Just above it, add the following code:
This code creates a button that triggers the “lightboxClose()” function when clicked, effectively closing the lightbox.
Step 3: Styling the Exit Button
Now that you’ve added the exit button to the code, it’s time to style it to match your website’s design. You can do this by adding CSS code to the <head> section of your webpage or by linking an external CSS file.
Here’s an example of how you can style the exit button:
padding: 10px 20px;
To apply this style to the exit button, modify the previous code you added to:
<button onclick="lightboxClose();" class="exit-button">Close</button>
Step 4: Implementing the Modified Code
Now that you have your modified code, it’s time to implement it on your website. Pick the webpage where you want to display the lightbox form and open it in your code editor or content management system.
Paste your modified code in the appropriate location on the webpage. Make sure to save your changes and test your website to ensure that the exit button is functioning correctly.
