Extremely versatile, works perfect, no issue in several months of use. And honestly, for me, nothing is missing. I even use it for click something / reveal result. For fun or educational purposes. Congratulations to the author, it’s much better than very good.

བྱས་རྗེས་འཇོག་མཁན། & གསར་འབྱེད་པ།

“Modal Guten Block” is open source software. The following people have contributed to this plugin.




  • Transition effects (fade, left, right, up, down) and ‘Custom Events’ for before modal open, after open, before close, after close
  • Manual trigger modal initialization by calling bodModal.initModal()


  • Modal background images. Separate options into Trigger, Modal, Title and Content panels. Title close X ability to define size. Trigger based on URL text.


  • modal to modal links, text align title, title close button


  • Option to disable close modal on Escape key press.


  • Fixed issue where clicking on nested content in edit mode resulted in modal edit content box closing.
  • When modal opened focus on first element but do not scroll to it. Stops modal opening at bottom.


  • Fix for when we trigger on image and image is smaller than medium size. In this case we default in the full size image.


  • Make ADA compliant including using button instead of span, setting / returning focus and focus trapping.
  • Add custom class to dialog when modal opens.
  • Add toggle option to disable close on overlay click.


  • Optional display only once for timer based modals. Modal Id links timer modals on different pages to say they are the same. Also ability to say how long before modal is shown again.


  • Change icon to use SVG – use alt tag from trigger image – optional close btn in modal


  • Update for deprecated wp.editor (changed to wp.blockEditor) and core/editor (changed to core/block-editor).

1.0.0 (8/19/2019)

  • First release
