Plugins in WordPress are something that add the functionality to your WordPress blog. Plugins make WordPress more customizable and easy to use. So, it is better to use plugins rather than modifying the core functionality. There are thousands of plugins available that are both free and paid.
Welcome Popup plugin is developed by Tecxperts of Weblineindia to show the welcome message to the visitors of the site. It is a fully customizable plugin. WordPress website administrator can have the personalized title and message to show to their website visitors.
The plugin also have other useful options available at the settings page of this plugin:
- Only on first visit
- Popup delay (in seconds)
- Show Display never link
- Exclude Pages
Let me further elaborate all.
The first option Only on first visit is a checkbox. If it is checked, the popup box will be shown only on the first visit, when any visitor visits site second time, the popup will not be shown to him. If not checked popup box will appear every time.
Next option Popup delay (in seconds) is a textbox. Input the number of seconds as a delay to show the popup. For instance, you enter 2, then popup will be shown at the frontend with 2 seconds of delay, after the site is loaded.
Further moving to the other options, Show Display never link is a checkbox. On checked, the popup box will show display never link when displayed at the frontend side. When user will click on that link, the popup will not be shown again. If not checked the link will not appear.
Welcome Popup Plugin also have the functionality to exclude pages so that popup box will not appear on those pages. On the plugin settings page there is a multi select box, select the pages on which you do not want to show popup box. So, the popup will not appear on the selected pages.
Hence, a fully customisable plugin is available to be used in WordPress.
Here is the snapshot available for the popup plugin setting page, it makes the options clearer to you.
