Why use modal popup in WordPress posts or pages?
My simple answer to that will be in 3 parts –
- You can economize on the space you have on a web page.
- Modal popup adds zing to the mundane web design.
- Adding modal popup is free. That’s right.
For me, the first part is important.
If you ever wished to hide a video or a large image or a form to free some space on your web page, modal popup is the ideal solution you should go for.
Web designers often prefer open space on a page because it then becomes easy to draw visitors’ attention to the main points on the page.

The above are text links to trigger the modal popups. But you could very easily use thumbnails or even buttons instead.
Another point - you can also control the type of the entry and exit of popups and make them exciting and varied as you want.
So you see, possibilities are endless.
Okay, now that you’ve seen the display of anything on a modal popup in WordPress, let me explain how you can do them easily with the help of a WordPress plugin.
