New Feature for Odoo Websites - Lightbox Media Pop Up

When used correctly, a Lightbox popup can be one of the most effective marketing tools on your website. It can help you capture leads, increase conversion rates, and boost sales.

However, if not chosen with caution and attention, it will disrupt the user experience and have an impact on your profit margins.

In this blog post, we will discuss how to use a Lightbox Image feature on your Odoo website.

What is a Lightbox?

In web design, a Lightbox popup is a window overlay that appears on top of a webpage, blocking some of the content on the page.

When a popup appears, the background is often dimmed and disabled, meaning that site visitors cannot interact with other content on the website. This draws attention to the Lightbox itself.

Lightboxes are frequently used to collect email addresses from potential consumers, which is an important step in your email marketing efforts. This may be accomplished in a variety of ways, such as asking readers to subscribe to your blog in order to get updates and newsletters, or to obtain a discount on your items.

Furthermore, Lightboxes may be utilised to highlight any significant messaging, such as specials, promotions, or events that you are organising. They may also be used to ensure that site visitors do not miss an image or video you wish to share with them.

Now that we have discussed what a Lightbox popup is and some of the ways it may be used, let’s look at how to use one on your Odoo website.
