Easy method for creating a modal, instead of building them manually.

    Another of my most-wanted. I create modals every day. Getting frustrated by them! But at least I'm probably one of the most skilled modal designers out there, lol! We need this for SURE!

    Much needed feature! Like Rowan I have created so any over the past 2 years :D.

    Love modals! I would even be happy with a way to save my own modals and use them across different projects.  Styling them is fun in Webflow!

    This oversight is surprising to me.

    Fwiw, here's the lightbox I painstakingly manually built (with some JS injected to handle toggling the scrollable base/background/body – another piece that should be handled by Webflow) on


    Dangit, the on-close animation isn't working. Anywho. I'd love this feature.

    +3. For me its most wanted thing.

    Big need for me as well. Feel like this is a given, but also needs ability to use cookies to not open again if the visitor comes back to the site later.

    This won't be necessary once they allow you to copy/paste with cross site compatibility. What I mean is you could create one or however many (with different styles and animations) and then all you'd have to do is paste the one you copied into the new site?

    So you could build however many of your own elements or "Blocks" and use them on any site that you want.

    I'd love it if you could design a CMS modal template in the same way you currently have CMS collection page templates. 

    That way, when you click a link it would populate the modal with info from the CMS.

    At present, to do this i have to add a separate collection list to each modal, which means i bump into the limit of 20 collection lists per page. It also means that every time i want to add/delete something from the modal, i have to go through them one by one making the change...

    I'd like this too.
