Create a unique, interactive experience for your users by adding popup boxes that work!

Head over to your Dashboard and click on the Pop-Ups App. You can create an unlimited number of popups by clicking the Create Popups button and fill in the given Title and Alias fields.

Customize, Duplicate, Edit or Delete your popups by clicking the appropriate icon located on the right.

Click the Open Popup button to start editing your popup.

The blank popup will appear on a new window. You can customize your popup by dragging and dropping elements. Use the black circles located on the four sides of the popup to adjust its sizing.

  • If you add a User Account element, the changes you apply to the element will be applied to the popup as well.

  • Make sure to have the same User Account settings for the element placed in the pop-up, burger menu, desktop, and mobile versions of the website.

In this pop-up, we've added Image and User Account elements with the on-page layout (find out how to do change the layout here). Just drag and drop any element from the list available in the Left Panel.

To change the Popup Settings, simply click on the gear icon on the top left corner of the screen. From there, you can adjust Popup Styles, Layer Styles, Popup Shadows and set Device Visibility.

  • Popup Style: Adjust the popup's position, animation styles, add a background image and change the popup colors.

  • Layer Style: Add a backdrop to your popup and change its image, color, and blur level.

  • Popup Shadow: Create a shadow for your popup using the Enable Shadow option. Change the color and adjust the position, spread, and blurring accordingly.

  • Device Visibility: This enables your pop-up to appear either on All devices, Desktop Only or Mobile Only. Click on the Device Visibility tab to choose the desired option from the drop-down menu for visibility control.

Assign a Popup to an Element

Assign a popup to these specific elements:

  • Button Element

  • Image Elements (including Gallery and Slider)

  • Icon

Once you add these elements to your crafting area, click on the element → edit link → popup. You can then choose which popup you want to assign to your element.

Change link

You can also edit your chosen popup by clicking the Open Popup option.

Open PopUp

And, that's a wrap! After saving your popup, click on Preview, located in the Left Panel, and then select the element you assigned your popup to!

Triggering rules

With the Triggering Rules, you can display your popups right on your website.

Start a lead generation campaign by adding a form or subscription element on your popup, announce updates, or simply add a nice greeting message for your visitors. It all depends on your creativity.

To make your popup visible on your pages you should:

  1. Select Page Rules,

  2. Enter the triggered URL,

  3. Set the appearance time in seconds.

Page Rules

First, let's understand what are page rules? A page rule specifies settings and values that you can apply to a specific URL pattern that references your domain. Page rules help you manage security, performance, and reliability based on each individual URL in your site.

For example, if you want to create a pop-up that will appear on the casino pages, you should enter casino as the alias of the rule.

Let's consider the rules you can set for your pages one by one:

  • Is: Your Popup will be displayed only on the page you selected.

  • Is not: The Popup will be displayed on all the pages but the selected one.

  • Starts with: The window will pop up only on the pages which URL starts with the selected alias,
    e.g. mysite.com/games/

  • Ends with: The window will pop up only on the pages end with the alias you added,
    e.g. mysite.com/casino/games

  • Contains: The message will be visible on all the pages containing the alias you added.
    e.g. mysite.com/casino/games/live

  • Does not contain: It will be hidden from the pages containing the alias.

Once the rule is set you need to enter the Alias of the page, e.g casino. Open the Pages App on Dashboard > Navigate to the needed page and click edit to see the alias.

Note: The alias can contain only lowercase letters, numbers, and dashes.

We’re almost done. All you have left is to set the time in seconds when your pop-up will appear on your page once you've opened it.
Please note, that you use natural numbers only, {1, 2, 3...}․

That’s it! You can enable or disable the triggering settings whenever you want.
