    Hello this is just the kind of plugin that I am looking for. I have one question. Is it possible to have this popup show by manually clicking on a link. Can you hyperlink this popup to appear by clicking on a word or image? That would be awesome if you can make it do that as well. Thanks.

        Was this option ever added? I’d like to trigger this pop-up by clicking on a word or image. It seems that a lot of these types of plug-ins lack that functionality. Has this been added? Is there any way to achieve this?

    I installed it and it was working fine before.

    But now somehow the program doesnt work anymore. I deleted it and installed it again, but still the same.

    When I click on settings/scrolling down popup

    I only see:

    Display mode (global setting):
    <script type=

    any ideas?

    I added a video from Youtube as a drop down popup, but when you click out, the sound still plays, can you tell me how to make this stop the sound when you click out? or else you have to pause the video and then click out and i think most people will just click out and then the sound will continue to play.
    any help is appreciated.

    So in looking at the latest update to your plugin all you have in the changelog is tested up to 3.4. Since there is no 3.4 version of wordpress and I can see many commits you have done to the plugin how are we supposed to know what you have changed to help us make the decision to upgrade or not? Is it going to break something we have set up? How would we know if you aren’t telling what you have changed?

    • Foomagoo
      May 15, 2012 at 5:57 pm #

      BTW I meant yet. 3.4 will be a major change so for all we know you could have done a major overhaul that makes it incompatible with previous versions.

      HI, 3.4 beta already released for testing purpose..

        Ok. Did you read my comment? Thats not the important part. Plus I clarified what I said. Can you answer the actual question?

          May 18, 2012 at 1:14 am #

          FYI, no code changes in the plugin update.. just tested the plugin with wp 3.4 release.

    Great plugin! Works great out of the box! Just wondering, though: Is there any way to get the popup to display only on the default WordPress login page? I’ve tried several methods and can’t get it to work. If it’s not possible, no big deal, just seeing if it can be done. THANKS!

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful plugin. However when the window pops out it just freezes to where it appears. So my concern is, is there any way that when the window appears, it stays at the center and scrollable?

    I look forward to see your reply. Thank you very much. =)

    I try to put the popup message on the home page, but it is not successful. I follow the instruction, and in the setting, I put the short code as well. But once I press “update setting” the short code id number gone. Do you know what is the reason?

    Thank you very much for your help.
