What is it called when you click on a link on a website and it comes up with its own window inside the website so you do not ever leave the website?
That is called the "lightbox effect".
Thank you! Is there any specific wordpress plugin that does this the best?
How do you get the lightbox effect to work on links. I have links to other sites on my website and I want the website to load in a lightbox. Which plugin or how do I do this?
