I have read multiple articles on how to do this, but I am running into problems.
The problem may lie in how I am trying to implement this.
I have a list with a form that I will be using for feedback purposes. I have created a link on the left-hand navigation called Feedback which appears on multiple pages. I want a user to be able to click on this link and have a modal form pop-up over their current page. When finished, the modal form should disappear and allow them to continue what they were doing. Therefore the user never sees the list where the feedback is housed, only I do as the admin.
This seems slightly different from what others have tried to do: implementing a button (using a CEWP) which, when clicked, opens a modal dialogue. Perhaps I am just too dimwitted to figure this out. Is this possible?
