Pop up for email sign ups

Hi, Does anyone recommend a third party software for a lightbox or pop up that allows visitors to subscribe to your emails right from the pop up? I am looking for suggestions!

I just started looking into this and found this article. Not sure if there is a way to implement this with townnews though.

Hey Rebecca,

We just got our pop-up working but still fighting with some bugs.


It would be nice if TownNews had custom functionality to plug directly into Constant Contact's list. For instance we have three email lists(top stories, sports, breaking). So the user could pick one, two or all three. And the most important feature would probably be to determine how often a user sees the popup.

Assuming you're using Flex (which uses Bootstrap), you can make modals this way:http://getbootstrap.com/javascript/#modals-examples and just place the code in an HTML block, etc.

Some more Bootstrap resources




I was playing with modals a bit on this project. Thanks for for resources.
