suggestions for Lightbox (opt in form) software

by 4 comments
I found a couple I was comparing, now I can't find them in my bookmarks, but likely even newer better stuff has come out since.

fyi a Lightbox is where the screen goes dim except for your opt-in form.

seems visually cooler than a hover form.

anyone own the software care to comment on the good and bad?

I've tried the one built into aweber and it seems to not function that well.

    Well, rumor has it there are a couple good ones built into version 2 of PowerEffects, but if you want to go directly to the source and get your hands a little dirty, I recommend GreyBox and PhatFusion. Of the 2, I think Greybox is easier to implement.

    Does the lightbox on-exit thingy, submits your opt-in form in the background, only asks once every page load and STOPS asking after people finally opt-in.

    Only lightbox script ever designed specifically for opt-in forms :-)

      I use Thickbox for nearly every lightbox thing I do, opt-ins included. It's a pretty simple script to use. I'm far from a programmer and I even managed to make a hack WordPress plugin out of it.

      But even if you're not into that, it's still very, very simple to use if you know a little HTML/Javascript. To find it, just search "Thickbox" in Google.
