  1. Hi,
    Having some problems with it.
    I added [POPUP=IMG1] at the bottom of one of my articles.

    But a blank popup shows up in one in my right column?

    My popup image1 text is: Free Books
    That shows up, all be it in the wrong place.

    However nothing else shows up?

    In my popup image1 url, I’ve added the link to my autoresponder where I created the form.

    Again, nothing else is showing up.

    What have I done wrong?

    Thanks for any help.


  2. Good plugin. The only thing is I would like this to pop up on the left hand corner of my page. Or even wherever I choose. Can this be done?


  3. Hi gopi,

    How do I update the CSS file? It says it’s inactive. Which parts do I change to make the changes I want? Your help greatly appreciated.



  4. Is there a way to show a more big comfortable button to close the popup? for example into the popup html code? to add for example the double button:
    ENTER – EXIT ?

  5. Hi brother,

    Great work. Can we use this pop up plugin with contact form 7. Because I want to take user information into two step. In first step Visitor have two fields (Name and email) on my home page and then when you hit submit it takes them to another page with the rest of the fields, but the name and email are already filled in with the values entered on the home page. If there is any possibilities, then let me know.

  6. Got your plugin working fine. Thanks for it. One question I have ? I would like when a person clicks on the image that I am using it opens up a page or goes to a hyperlink.

    Can this be done … and how ?

  7. I don’t think there is enough instructions on how to use this plug I also am not getting the image I had to look at how you did your links to know how to add links correctly. At first I had the images when I change the size now no images comes out help please.

  8. hey guys, i am not well into php but i manage a little bit. one quick question…is is possible to change the location of the pop up on the screen? i have a flashfader plugin and the pop up appears behind, not being able to read the pop up window.
    thanks for any suggestions posted.

  9. well…i actually meant location of the pop up, not position but after fiddled around with the css, i managed to work it out, just placed lower so it doesn’t come up behind my flashy plugin. anyhow, the plugin is awesome, does what it says. nicely done gopi!

  10. won’t upload the image. can u help? the pop up window shows the cracked image icon but the image is on the server. if i type the url it will take me there but it won’t show in the pop up window…

  11. Can you provide the HTML for the plugin? I have a theme (Narm from Themeforest) which is only using HTML, no shortcodes, on the home page. I’ve had to convert all shortcodes into HTML (i.e. buttons) but am having a difficult time dissecting what is all added with your plugin. It looks great and can’t wait to use it.



  12. It seems to be installed correctly because it shows your photos on the page. I’ve changed the php file to reflect the images in my server rather than yours.

    add_option(‘PPOPOUPUP_URL2’, “http://www.gopiplus.com/work/wp-content/uploads/pluginimages/320×250/320x250_1.jpg”);

    I’ve changed the URL to be a jpg on my server. I can paste the address of my jpg into a browser and see it. What could be wrong?


  13. I have to put the code [POPUP=IMG1] somewhere in a post, or in a template file? Putting it into the regular single.php code doesnt’ work; it just prints out [POPUP=IMG1] in the post. Putting it between tags throws an error

  14. That didn’t come out right. putting it between tags doesn’t work right. The tags didn’t print out in my last comment.

    I see now that if I put the code into a post it works, but I don’t want to put it in every post by hand. Is there a way to get it into single.php, catagory.php, etc. ?

  15. hi,

    is there any way to place wp or buddypress login form into popup, so that popup appears when login link is clicked?

    thank you.

  16. Hi,

    just a quick question about the size.
    I’ve changed the heigth, but I still dont get a complete picture.

    Can you maybe give me a hint what i’m doing wrong?

    Btw, a great plugin!
    Makes live lost easyer!


  17. Hi Gopi,

    Its a fantastic plugin which i was searching for. But i have some problem.

    I have separate php file and i am including that to the wordpress template. so i cannot add [POPUP=IMG1] to that page, it will support only with posts and pages. So if you can help that would be great (instead of [POPUP=IMG1] i want like php command). I dont know how to explain, because i am not a software professional.

    Thanks in advance.


  18. Hi Gopi! I like the idea of your popup but I can’t really instal it because it hasn’t been tested on the latest version of wordpress.

    I am wondering when you could test it because I like this popup.

  19. Thanks. I’ve just installed this plugin. But I want to know the function of “show the popup” for __ days and ___ visits. I put 1 day and 3 visits. Is that okay?

    Also, I have deactivated all the plugins except this one and WP super cache. I wonder if I can bring back my other plugins like adsense injections and other widgets. Thanks.

  20. Hi,
    the popup is showing nicely.
    the problem is, that for some reason after I close the popup, some links on the page are inactive.
    specifically, hyperlinks are not clickable. when disabling the plugin they work.
    any idea?


  21. Hi,
    I did all steps but I’m having problem. The popup picture does not appear. I could not find the reason.
    If you can help me to solve the problem…

  22. Hello, Gopi.

    Can I make the popup appear in response to a click on a text/image link?

    Thank you for your work!

  23. Hello,

  24. hello;

    i could manage to run this plugin on my site but not closely to my wishes. how can i make it centered horizontally and aligned top vertically?


  25. Wondering the same as a few above – how to put it in theme for every page on site instead of individual posts/pages?

  26. Hi Gopi

    Impressed with features of your popup plugin However, it is being blocked even though you state it is unblockable

    My theory is it’s because it’s where it’s being installed

    I’ve deactivated yours, installed another popup plugin and it works The only difference that I can see is in installation location

    This image explains in more detail

    PS If you wish for me to remove this image URL, please advise

  27. Is their any way I can dim the screen in the background?

    I tried messing around with the CSS and JS but I can’t seem to implement it on my own!

    Thanks in advance!

    • This is possible in the “Scrolling down popup plugin” in that if you not enter the background color u can view the transparent effect…

  28. First of all well done for the plugin.

    I wanted to ask if there is a way to activate the popup according to the origin country of the viewer?

    For example if a person is browsing from USA it will show a different popup then a person browsing from UK.

    Thanks for your help

  29. I created a blog on wordpress but i would like before access a my blog, everyone see my photos and a message “welcome to my blog”, then they can click on “welcome to my blog” they can to access my blog. this plugin can do that, dear ?

    echo do_shortcode(“[POPUP=IMG1]”) but didn’t work.
    Haw can we do? I think many people would like to use your plugin from home pages! Does anybody found a way to use it?

  31. Dear Gopi
    There are lots of issue about installation of this plugin.
    could you please upload a video that shows installation of this plugin.
    it will be helpful for those who have lack of knowledge about installing this plugin.
    i am using classipress and want to install this plugin but i am also new to wordpress and not getting right way to install on my classipress

  32. Excellent set of plugins.

    I need to set a time delay before the pop “pop’s up!’ using the image based popup.

    I had a look at the popup.php but couldn’t see any miliseconds to chance there. I looked at the other two plugins and couldn’t see anything in there php either.

    Are you able to help me offset the time by say 3000 miliseconds before loading?

  33. Hi!

    I need the popup to show up relative to the mouse pointer. Do you happen to know how I can alter the code so I can do that?

    thanks! 🙂

  34. It don´t works at all. First, display the default foto, now after deleting it and putting my own, there happens nothing. Maybe it don´t works with wp-cycle and WP Supersized? Or any other plugin that stops the execution?

  35. Is it possible close window pop up without to be redirect to any page?. I need open your pop up only in filter categories and when a visitor close window should not be redirect to home page! Can you help me?

  37. I’m trying to set the popup to open on the index.html page only- however the code for the home page setting is not working- I’m having to use the code that opens it in every page except the home page. Interestingly the pop up works on the index.html page with this code.

    Any idea how to get the home page code to work on the index.html page only?

    I have also tried inserting the single line code in the page as mentioned above- nothing worked.

    I set the popup message option to YES- however this stopped the popup code from working at all.

  39. Hi Gopi,
    Very intersting plugin!
    I’m trying it with WP 3.5.1, running it from a function. Nothing appeared. I did see the following Javascript error:

    Error: ReferenceError: PopupDivFunc is not defined

    As I look at your code, I do see that function in your Javascript. So I guess something is not connecting. Any ideas?

    The shortcode method does work!

    Thanks, Dave

  40. Hi Gopi!
    I fixed my own problem. It occurred to me that your JS library was loading fine, so maybe I just needed to run my function “further down” to make sure the library would be available to it.

    Sure enough, when I loaded it down around the loop, it worked great! So it was a simply timing issue.

    I’ll enjoy using your plugin, because although i’m pretty handy with functions, session programming is not something I know about.

    Your plugin works great, I appreciate it!

  41. Please see popup on my site (ilariadamico dot it).
    Why popup isn’t centered?

    I add code [popup show=”IMG1″] in article in evidence.


  42. This would be a great plugin if the link URL would target a separate page? Is this possible as I hate sending people away from my site.

  43. If the HOME page is STATIC you need to use is_front_page() in place of is_home()
    to trigger the popup window.

    See settings – reading for home page settings.

  44. Whether you are searching for specialty styling products or specific Loreal hair products, you are sure to find
    what you need. Likewise, using imported shampoos
    and conditioners from a tropical country when your climate is cold and temperate
    is not such a good idea. A well groomed woman will look to her hair and makeup first and a poll of
    3,000 females across the UK revealed that about 44% feel attractive if they are having a good hair day, this compares to 16% who felt pleased with their appearance if good teeth gave them that winning smile.

  45. hey
    i just typed popup in add new plugin and i clicked on 1st showed plugin and it is great plugin..
    thanks for this !!
