Load Marketo Form Lightbox upon clicking specific link on landing page

<script src="//app-sjn.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.min.js"></script>
<form id="mktoForm_1886"></form>
<script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-sjn.marketo.com", "912-DWT-370", 1886);</script>‍‍‍

Hello Community! 

I would like to use the lightbox form code below (vanilla script from my instance) on a landing page. I know that using the script as-is will simply fire upon a page load, but I would like it to load when a user clicks a specific link.

I don't know enough about js in order to implement the script that way, so any suggestions would be super appreciated!

<script src="//app-sjn.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.min.js"></script>
<form id="mktoForm_1886"></form>
<script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-sjn.marketo.com", "912-DWT-370", 1886, function (form){MktoForms2.lightbox(form).show();});</script>

Please highlight the code using the Advanced Editor's syntax highlighter. Then we'll continue.

Hi Sanford, thanks for your reply. I apologize I am not sure how to provide the code to you in that format. Would it help if I provide you a URL so you can inspect the page?

Hi Nathan,

You can update your original post by selecting edit.

1. Click on the three dots for Expand toolbar.

3. Paste your code in the dialogue box that appears, making sure you select the appropriate language.

Sending a link helps to see how the script works within your live environment, so it's helpful to include.

What Josh said. After highlighting you'd want to look at this example:

   MktoForms2 :: Detect Link that Launched Lightbox 

The JS there shows how to attach the lightbox not just to one link, but potentially to several links, logging which one the person clicked to finally fill out the form.

Re: Load Marketo Form Lightbox upon clicking specific link on landing page

This is awesome and exactly what I was looking for, but I cannot get the code to work. I even tried just creating a landing page from scratch and adding all the code examples into the guided LP and it won't work. Am I missing something? or will this only work on non-marketo LPs?

Which "this" is awesome in this case? 🙂

It'll work fine on a Marketo or (obvs.) non-Marketo LP, but on a Marketo LP you must put the custom JS just before the closing </body> tag to ensure the Forms 2.0 library is present first.

I got the code to work, but it looks like the form is displayed twice and the form is partially outside the lightbox. Here is the testing URL - https://learn.bisk.com/testing-base-code---light-box-link-click.html
