Question: Is it possible to have multiple modal dialog box triggers on a page that each open different modal dialog content?


Answer: You may have multiple triggers on a page, but only one modal dialog box. Early on we (at Utah State University) discussed supporting multiple modals but then we saw several courses that had used a different method to add modals and had modal dialogs all over the page. This was a usability nightmare that frustrated students who had to constantly open and close boxes to get to information so we decided to limit modals to one per page. We're open to reconsidering this decision if there are compelling use cases.
