In Kumu, you can embed content from external providers into a lightbox.

To show content in a lightbox, start by finding a link to the embeddable version of the external content. Once you have the link, just add add ?lightbox to the end for the default lightbox, or add ?lightbox=full for a nearly-fullscreen lightbox.

Add the completed link into one of the following places in your map:

Tip: Add the lightbox to a custom field named URL with its type set to URL, and the lightbox will open when your element, connection, or loop is double-clicked.

Note: If you're looking to put a Youtube video in a lightbox, make sure to use the full URL. More info here.
