Basic Version - how to code a pop up based on text box characters???



New Member
Hi, I am designing a website, basically as a favour, using wordpress. I am a newbie to this - I used to design years ago using Drumbeat (pre Dreamweaver software - am a real dinosaur) but this is new to me. Not getting paid to do so, and the potentiality for spending a fortune on the Wordpress platform is huge. I have NO budget other than have the pro version of I'm trying (and failing) to add a popup to some text in an elementor text box which I feel should be easy, but I really don't want to have to spend £50 a year plus for the priviledge . Even on the sales page it says "50 widgets if you upgrade - but WHICH 50 widgets would be a good ask?!" I've spent a lot of time building the page and like it, and don't want to lose it by returning to the Wordpress editor and starting from scratch.

So my question, as a non-coder who nevertheless can fiddle about a bit with code without too much damage, is there a way to impose a popup on click of a text statement in an elementor text box, using only the basic elementor plugin??

Thanks so much for your help and advice.
