How Do I Close a Modal in Webflow?

Closing a Modal in Webflow

If you have ever worked with modals in Webflow, you may have wondered how to close them. Modals are a popular way to display additional content or forms on your website without navigating away from the current page.

In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to close a modal in Webflow. So let’s dive in!

Method 1: Using the Close Button

The most common and straightforward way to close a modal is by adding a close button inside the modal. To do this:

  • Create a button element inside the modal.
  • Add a class to the button, for example, “close-button”.
  • Style the button as desired using Webflow’s built-in styling options or custom CSS.
  • Add an interaction to the button by selecting it and going to the Interactions panel.
  • Select “Mouse Click” as the trigger, and then choose “Hide” as the action for your modal element.

Method 2: Using Custom Code

If you prefer using custom code instead of Webflow’s interactions, you can use JavaScript or jQuery to close your modal. Here’s an example:

  • Add an ID to your modal element, for example, “my-modal”.
  • Create a function that triggers when you want to close the modal. You can do this by writing JavaScript or jQuery code.
  • In your function, select the modal element using its ID and hide it.

Method 3: Clicking Outside the Modal

In some cases, you may want to allow users to close the modal by clicking outside of it. Webflow provides an easy way to achieve this:

  • Select your modal element in the Webflow Designer.
  • In the Interactions panel, add a new interaction.
  • Choose “Mouse Click” as the trigger, and then select “Hide” as the action for your modal element.
  • Select “While Clicking Outside Element” to specify that clicking outside the modal triggers the interaction.


In this tutorial, we explored different methods to close a modal in Webflow. You can use a close button, custom code, or allow users to click outside of the modal.

Each method offers its own advantages, so choose the one that best suits your needs. With these techniques, you will be able to create interactive and user-friendly modals on your website using Webflow!
