How to show post content in Modal Popup Box?

PowerPack v2.21.0 introduces a feature that you can use to link the Modal Box in Content Grid or any posts module that supports Beaver Themer’s Custom Layout feature. It allows you to display the post content in modal popup.

Let’s see how to connect the Modal Box with Content Grid and show the post elements in the popup box.

Add Modal Box to the page

Drag & Drop the Modal Box module of PowerPack to display the post content in modal popup.

Configure the Modal Box

General tab > Content

  1. Set the “Enable Title” to “No”
  2. Set the “Type” to “Raw HTML”
  3. Add HTML comment <!-- pp-modal-post-template --> into the HTML field. Please note that it is important to add this HTML comment to recognize the template.
  4. Add your own HTML and build the template. You can click on the field connection “+” icon and insert the shortcodes related to the post into the HTML field. These field connections will only appear if you have the Beaver Themer plugin installed and active.
