Let’s you create unobtrusive Modals from menu items or text links. Place any Widget inside them, even Elementor’s Widget that let you display any library item you wish. Creating Modals is like creating a Post or Page, with added options below the content input area. You can even set specific options for tablets or smartphones. Can’t believe this one is free and not part of the Pro Package.
