If you have been following our blog so far or already use our plugin, you must have noticed that almost all the popups have distinct options. In addition to the general options, these distinct options ensure that a popup type serves its purpose to the best. Configuring the specific options, you can determine the appearance and functionalities of the popup based on your taste, preferences or design considerations.
Getting to know the various types of popups you might think that’s all we can offer. Actually, the multiple types of popups we have been discussing so far come up with versatile and pliable functionalities. Especially notable is the fact that these functionalities can be extended through the application of another kind of a popup window that is called shortcode popup.
The essence of the latter is displaying a plugin’s shortcode in a compact and eye-catching popup. This means that having made a form, a slide or something else with a plugin, you can integrate its shortcode into the popup. Just fill in the corresponding blank with the shortcode in the “General” section.
Either due to design considerations, for convenience, or aimed at getting more info, you can choose to apply the extended functionalities this popup type provides. Thus, if you would like to add some other points into the form to outsource additional info about your subscribers or people contacting you, create the form via plugins possessing the required features. These plugins are sure to provide you a shortcode for every form you make. Later on, you will only need to place it into our “Enter Shortcode” section. As a result, the form with all its content will be fully integrated into the popup due to the content being scrollable. Here is another form made with a plugin called “Contact form 7”. The mentioned form is displayed in a popup due to the application of the extended functionalities this popup provides.
What’s more, you can make a slideshow with a corresponding plugin and show it in a popup. Our example presented below has been made with “MetaSlider” plugin. Just make a slideshow with the help of a relevant plugin and write its shortcode in the appropriate section while making the popup. It’s amazing that the visitors will be able to flip through the slides right from the popup, isn’t it? To have an even greater impact, take care to customize the images to your needs in advance. Integrate unique images with an outstanding text message to attract visitors’ attention to your offer.
Generally, the features of the popups other than the shortcode popup are pliable enough to meet users’ needs. However, in case you are looking to extend popup functionalities, this popup is exactly what you need. Having created a form, a slideshow or something else through one of the plugins, just take the shortcode and enter it into the appropriate field of the popup configurations. The form or slideshow will be enclosed in a popup window with all its content. The visitors will be able to flip through the slides or to scroll the popup content to see all the integrated points. Just take care to make the content pleasant to the eye, polite and persuasive as the role of this popup solely consists in representing info from another plugin in all its glory.
