Click on YITH -> Popup to open the general settings panel of the plugin. This is where you can enable the popup visualization.
You can also enable the popup on mobile devices, which means that customers who are visiting your website on their mobile devices will also see the popup. The third step allows you to enable the popup on all pages.
In this section you can configure the following settings:
You can select where you want to show the Popup. If the “Show on all pages” option has been disabled, you need to use this option to select in which pages of the site you want to show the default popup.
The Cookie variable is the name of the cookie. This is used to avoid showing the popup to customers that don’t want to see it next time they access the site, after having selected the checkbox in the footer.
Each time the name of the cookie is changed, the popup will be displayed to those customers that have previously decided to not see it again, as the last cookie registered for their session will be no longer valid.
We suggest to not abuse this feature, as it can be experienced as annoying.
the option hide policy allows you to decide when you want to hide the popup. You can hide it when the checkbox has been checked or you can choose to show it only once per session. About the last option, if you have different popups for different pages, the visualization of one of those won’t imply the exclusion of the other. They will all be displayed only once to your customers when they enter the page.
How many days should the popup be hidden for? This option lets you choose for how many days the popup must be hidden to those customers that have decided to not see it again. The related cookie will expire after the days that are indicated here.
You can set the hiding text, the text to display next to the checkbox to hide the popup. And select a default Popup that you want to show on the page(s) of your website.
If you go to YITH -> Popups you find all available templates. The Popup custom post type contains the list of all popups you have created. If you want to create a new one, click on the Add New Popup option. From this page, you can activate and deactivate the visualization of each popup.
If you want to have different popups in the pages of your website, go to the pages regarding this and set the Popup option according to your needs on the bottom of the page.
You have the following options:
- The page respects the settings of the plugin options panel, so the default popup will be shown if the page is one of those set to show the default one.
- A popup created in the popup custom post type is shown.
- No popup is shown in the page.
Choose the right template for your popup among the 6 available templates in the plugin. View a preview of the one you selected to have an idea of how it might look like when shown to your customers.
The Tab Content allows you to edit the content you can enter into the popup.
According to the type of content you select in the drop-down menu “Content-type”, you will be able to edit the textual parts of your popup from the textual boxes available (header, footer, left contents, right contents, unique content).
N.B. The content you enter in the tabs “Newsletter”, “Form”, “Social” and “WooCommerce” will only be shown if the same popup type has been selected in the drop-down menu “Content-type”.
