How to Use Modal Popup in WordPress for Free to Display Any Content

Free modal popup for WordPress frees space on a page.

Why use modal popup in WordPress posts or pages?

My simple answer to that will be in 3 parts –

  1. You can economize on the space you have on a web page.
  2. Modal popup adds zing to the mundane web design.
  3. Adding modal popup is free. That’s right.

You can add any number of modal popups on a page or post to display literally any web content. For free.

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.

A modal popup in WordPress fits the bill perfectly. It can display nearly anything, image, video, codes, even Google forms, thus freeing up space on the page for other use.

So you see, possibilities are endless.
