You want to add a simple Pop-up to your WordPress website. But you are not sure how to do it properly. Do you need custom code or there is an easier way to do it?
Custom coding might be fun and interesting for some. But most will just search for the plugin that can add this function to a website in no time. So, what plugin do you use?
We have used the Popups – WordPress Pop-up plugin on several websites. It is an excellent plugin that is easy to use and configure. In the meantime, the same company released a completely new plugin, that also looks promising. It's called: WP Pop-ups – WordPress Pop-up builder.
Here is how you can add your first simple Popup with the WP Pop-ups:
To start it is easy as going to the WP Pop-ups and selecting All Popups from the left sidebar. From there you can easily click on Add New:
You are able to choose between 3 styling options (templates) from the start. And, in this case, we will use the First, Blank Pop-up.
You get a nice editor where you can add your desired content, you can even add a video to it. On the right you can see live preview that can save you few clicks.
Next, you can fine tune Appearance with some custom CSS, position settings, colors... Be free to play with it.
Proceed to Display Rules, and here you can select if you want Pop-up to appear on all pages, on specific categories pages or posts, specific Post ID, browser, devices, Page templates, and more. Important thing is that these rules will cover most of the use cases.
Finally, under Settings, you can fine-tune how Pop-up is triggered, how long it should stay closed, and more. If you are not sure about this, you can publish it with default settings and see if that works for you.
Once you are ready, Tap on Publish button and that is it, your Pop-up should display on the selected pages.
