How it works

↑ Back to top

With the Splash Popup extension, you can create custom popups by designing a regular WordPress page using the standard WordPress editor and Gutenberg. This approach allows you to craft visually appealing popup layouts and incorporate any desired information or elements directly into the page content.

  1. Create a Regular WordPress Page: Start by navigating to your WordPress dashboard and selecting ‘Pages’ > ‘Add New’. This initiates the creation of a new page where you’ll craft your popup content.
  2. Design Your Popup Content: Utilize the intuitive WordPress editor or Gutenberg blocks to intricately design your popup content. Incorporate text, images, videos, buttons, or any other supported elements to convey your message effectively.
  3. Assign the Page as the Splash Popup Content: After preparing your popup content, navigate to WooCommerce > Settings > Splash Popup. Within the settings page, select the appropriate WordPress page (by title) to display for Logged Out Users, Logged In Users, and Logged In Customers. By specifying the page in the Splash Popup settings, you establish a direct connection between your crafted layout and the dynamic popup display functionality.
  4. Cookie Expiration (days): By defining the number of consecutive days in this field, you determine the duration for which the popup will remain hidden after it has been closed by the user. For example, if you set the cookie expiration to 30 days, the popup will not reappear for the same user for the next 30 days after they have closed it. This feature helps in controlling the frequency of popup appearances, ensuring a smooth and non-intrusive browsing experience for your website visitors
  5. Display the Popup as a Modal Window: With your designated page set as the backbone for your Splash Popup content, it seamlessly transforms into a modal window when triggered on your website. Visitors exploring your site will encounter the popup seamlessly integrated into their browsing experience, effectively showcasing your tailored content and design.

This allows you to create engaging popups that effectively communicate your message and engage your audience.

WooCommerce Splash Popup creates a popup from a WordPress page you create on your website. By creating a separate newsletter signup page, you can link to it and have customers sign up via the popup. But this is not a typical feature of the extension itself.

Is it possible to display different popups on specific pages or product categories?

Can I use multimedia content such as images or videos in my popups?
