No code, No problem! Easily create complex popups in Webflow
If you've ever been mystified by the idea of creating popups that have multiple close points. For instance, open and close with the same button. Close by clicking on the screen or another close element. If you haven't figured out how to make these interactions smooth so that it opens on the first click every time without diving into code, you're not alone. We've all been there.
But what if I told you that with Webflow, you could achieve this directly using its native interactions panel? Sounds exciting, right?

Here is a cleaned up version of the transcript if you would rather read through it.
Casey here with CEO creative, where I'm teaching you web design and webflow one video at a time. Today, we're going to look at how to build a complex pop-up inside of webflow. Last time we looked at how to build a simple pop-up, just one pop-up that pops up over your entire screen. But today, we're going to look at how you can build a more complex pop-up structure.
All right, well, here we are inside of the computer. I'm going to show you the HTML and the CSS you need, as well as the interactions. We're going to focus a lot on what makes the magic of this happen.
Setting up the HTML and CSS
We start with our benefits component, essentially a grid with two benefit items inside. This isn't driven through a CMS, purposefully, to showcase both the right and wrong way to set this up. We have our benefit item, benefit image wrapper, and inside of that, the modal. This setup ensures the button remains accessible, whether the modal is open or closed. Positioning and display settings are crucial for the proper functioning of the modal.
Interactions and User Experience
The interactions are key. Multiple buttons, showing and hiding at the right times, ensure seamless user experience. Using "selected element" ensures the right pop-up opens, and the interactions work as they should.
One pitfall is using a first-click animation to open and a second-click animation to close, especially if multiple methods of closing are desired. This creates a disconnect in the user experience. Instead, using two distinct buttons—one to open, one to close—provides a smoother experience.
This approach is ideal for custom menus or navigations. By switching buttons and ensuring smooth transitions, the user experience is optimized. The key takeaway: always aim for simplicity and intuition when designing interactive elements.
