How To Add A Pop-Up Video

To Add A Pop-Up Video to your Auction website, you will need to add a Button element to trigger the pop-up.

You can add the Button element wherever you see as the best place. For Virtual Live Gala events you might look at adding this Button to the Live Auction Controller page.

To start, insert the Button by dragging and dropping the More Column Content button into the content area you want to use.

TIP

IMPORTANT In some cases, you may need to use the Add Row function to insert a new row into the section with an appropriate number of columns and then insert the Button element.

Next step is to use the Edit Element option for the Button element properties.
