Disable close

Disable Close can be found in the module settings for selected modules and prevents the reader from closing a pop-up module. To access this section, select a module that you have added to your page followed by the Settings palette.

How does it work?
Disable Close works by removing the cross fDisabl_close.jpgrom the top right corner and stops the pop-up closing if the greyed out area around the popup is clicked.

This effectively makes the pop-up mandatory as it requires the reader to complete a task that allows them to close the pop-up.

How do I set this up?
Select the module, then tick the Disable Close checkbox under Pop-up Style in the Settings palette.
