Overlay window by clicking on text?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm looking for a bit of advice on how to implement something on my website. I think that it's likely achievable, but my knowledge doesn't go much beyond the basic Squarespace features, and I figured someone here may know! I've got this text box here, and I'm looking to be able to click a word in that text box and have a box/window show up on the page that has additional text. I'll be adding the text "read more" into the grey box, and I'm hoping to be able to click that, and have a larger box overlay on the page, that will hold a larger piece of text. Any thoughts are very much appreciated! Cheers.

that sounds like it would work yes!

You will need to use 3rd party plugin to achieve this.

I wrote a quick guide to do this. You can see here (the post contains affiliate link)

If you need a free solution, you can find a free code on this CodePen, then share me link. We will try convert it to Squarespace.
