Lightbox conditions are rules that you create in order to specify the circumstances under which a lightbox should be displayed. If a lightbox doesn't have at least one condition set, it will not be shown to your website visitors.
Conditions can be created by clicking the Add link under the Conditions column in the Web Forms Interface. When a lightbox has a condition set, the Add link will change to Edit.
Conditions can also be created from within the Lightbox Editor interface.
You can create as many conditions for a lightbox as your business rules require. By default, conditions with multiple rules are evaluated as an "AND" which means that all rules must evaluate to true in order for the lightbox to be shown.
You can create rules that are evaluated as an OR. Within the rules interface there is an OR option to create a rule that will be analyzed in an "OR" manner. Click the OR button to create this type of rule.
The OR option allows you to display a lightbox even if only one of the rules evaluates to true.
Web Forms also offers Rulesets which allow you to save a set of rules that can be applied
to multiple lightboxes. Read more about Rulesets.
