Modal Pop up

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

It's not really like an issue on my website, it's more about a lack of explanation for a plugin.

I've downloaded Modal Pop Up and I'm trying to have many pop ups on the same page.

 

I've seen the part about giving pop ups different names,

But then, how do I call this particular pop up ?

i have asked the plugin dev to take a look at this for you. :)

i moved this into his support forum


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Are you wanting to manually call the popup? if so, go to my website where it explains how to make a manual trigger: http://modal-popup-dms.mrfent.com/extras/

 

Or are you wanting several PopUps to show up automatically? If so, the section really wasn't designed to have several automatic PopUps appear all at once on the same page when it loads. You might be able to do it by cloning the section, although I haven't tested it. Having several PopUps appear automatically when the page loads wouldn't be ideal for visitors anyway.

 

The screenshot you posted of the custom cookie name is intended for if you want to have a different PopUp appear on a different page, not multiple on the same page.

No answer? I already told you. You can manually trigger the PopUp by following the instructions on my website. http://modal-popup-dms.mrfent.com/extras/

 

It's not designed to have more than one PopUp on the same page. I can look into adding a feature that will allow you to clone the section and then manually call different popups. In the mean time, have you tried using the [pl_modal] shortcode?

You told me that. But given the fact that that was not my question... Thanks, but ...

 

So now you say it's not made to have more than one PopUp on the same page. That's THE answer I was looking for.

 

Some shortcode ? How would I tell about the pop up I want to activate ?

 

Thanks

The shortcode I'm referring to is one of the core DMS shortcodes that can be found here: 

 

http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/shortcodes Look for the heading "Modals"

 

This doesn't give you as much customization for your PopUp as my section offers, but you can add as many as you want. However I'm going over my code and I don't think it will be too difficult to implement what you are wanting to do, so give me a little time and I'll try to have an update in a little bit

Ok.

Shortcode would be fine but it does not seem to work with images instead of buttons..

Yeah, like I said, my section gives you more customization than the [pl_modal] shortcode does. 

 

Please update to the new 1.0.1 version. I added the option "Custom Modal ID." For each additional PopUp you want, you'll need to assign a custom ID to the modal. This way you can make a custom trigger for each one, and it will open the correct PopUp. Inside the section options, you'll also find some new sample code to make the manual trigger. After you enter a custom ID, refresh the page, and the sample code will be updated with the new ID, so all you have to do is copy and paste. Hope this helps, and please let me know if you have any more questions.

      I need the modal popup background to be solid and I can't get the css to work. Not sure what to do. Here's the page: http://bellissimoplasticsurgery.com/breast-augmentation-test-page/

      I've used the Modal Popup for an optin form on http://thecommonthreadgroup.com for both an automatic popup on the home page and a manual popup on every page of the site by using a different Custom Modal ID - no problem - they both work.
      I'm trying to use just the manual trigger on this site under development: http://seidner.21thirteenhost.com/
      I've got the section in the superfooter (I've tried it in other places as well) and a manual trigger on the superfooter as well as in the sidebar here: http://seidner.21thirteenhost.com/category/blog/
      It is not working. The difference is that in this site I'm using the Easy Smooth Scroll Links plugin, Version 2.0, by Jeriff Cheng.
      Obviously there is a conflict here and I don't understand enough about this sort of thing to do anything about it. I really need to use both plugins.
      I'm more of a web designer with some pretty decent knowledge of html and css, and not a php guy. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
      WP and DMS2 versions are totally update, as are all plugins.
      Additional data is that there is a place in the ESSL plugin for "Exclude Anchors Beginning With ( default is #tab #quicktab #pane )" and "Exclude Anchors Exactly Match". I've put #ModalPopUp, #Modal, and Modal in the provided fields, but still no go.
      Thank you in advance,
      Perry

      Just installed this and can only get the header to appear in the popup.
       
      I've tried plain text in the body or selecting a page to show its content but only ever get 1 line of header
       
      see here for example.

      Hi, the Modal Popup is working fine. But whenever I look on the DMS Editor, that section is gone. It was placed at the bottom of the Footer. The first time it happened, I thought maybe I had inadvertently deleted it, or not saved properly. So I re-created another one. And so on. Then I finally realized it was working after all. But now I'm wondering if there are several of my popups in place, all of them the same, yet none of them visible, but yet all of them working. I've tried adjusting/saving into a new page template. I've tried turning on/off the DMS Editor. Still can't find a trace of the Modal Popup section, yet I know it works because I used Safari and Firefox to confirm, even on a different computer. Thanks for any help/insight you might provide.

      Dear Chris,
       
      I have a page with multiple pop-ups.
      When user clicks on the link it was supposed to open the pop-up.

      But when we click it opens up the pop-up and immediately closes it.
      I tested it on many browsers and all had the same strange behavior.

      You can see it on page: http://qualitaexpress.com.br/etapas-de-uma-importacao/
      Click on any of the links under the main big icons.

      Or click on any of the buttons on page: http://qualitaexpress.com.br/servicosparaimportacao/

      I have WordPress 4.0.1 running iBlogPro theme.
      Any idea on how to fix it?
      Thanks
