Modal windows are message boxes that are activated to display additional information or features without leaving the current page. On the Publications Office portal, we use a modal based on the Bootstrap CSS framework.

How to implement

Copy and paste the code below into your web page. To customise, replace with your content and values:

  • For the link or button trigger: data-target="#modal-example-1"
  • For the modal: id="modal-example-1" aria-labelledby="modal-title-example-1"
  • For the modal title: id="modal-title-example-1"

The code for button or link that triggers the modal:

<a class="gs-btn gs-btn-main" data-target="#modal-example-1" data-toggle="modal" href="#" onclick="gsOpenModal(this)" role="button">Open modal</a>

The code for the modal:

<div id="modal-example-1" aria-hidden="true" aria-labelledby="modal-title-example-1" class="modal op-modal fade"  role="dialog" style="display: none;" tabindex="-1">
    <div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
        <div class="modal-content">
            <div class="gs-modal-header-wrapper">
                <h2 id="modal-title-example-1">Example modal window title</h2>
                <a aria-label="Close" class="gs-btn gs-btn-ghost" data-dismiss="modal" href="#" role="button" style="justify-self: end;"><i aria-hidden="true" class="gs-icon-close"></i> </a>
            <div class="gs-modal-body">
