AutomatorWP – Popup Maker integration



Important: Now all free integrations are included in AutomatorWP so you no longer need to install them one by one!

AutomatorWP Popup Maker integration adds an new check on your popups limiting its visibility.
This means that when a popup is used on the Show a popup action, this popup wont get displayed until this action gets executed (to get the action executed, the user will need to meet all triggers from the automation first).

You can check the AutomatorWP documentation to understand what automation, trigger and action means.
About setting up the popup, check the Popup Maker documentation.

No, simply configure the popup with the trigger you wish and AutomatorWP will automatically limit its visibility when this popup is in use on an automations action.

For example, if you configure a popup to being displayed automatically (Popup Settings -> Trigger -> Time delay / Auto Open) the normal workflow is that the next time the user refresh a page, the popup will get displayed automatically.

Now, if you setup an AutomatorWP automation with the action Show a popup, then the popup wont be displayed until the user meets all requirements.

Setup Example:
Popup Maker: Add new Popup -> Title: Congratulations -> Popup Settings -> Trigger -> Time delay / Auto Open
AutomatorWP: Add new automation -> Trigger User completes a LearnDash course -> Action Show the Congratulations popup

With this setup, the popup Congratulations only will be displayed at the moment the user completes a LearnDash course.

If you have setup a popup using the trigger Time delay / Auto Open you need to associate a cookie for the event On Popup Close.

For a depth explanation about how to setup this cookie in the way you wish, check this article from the Popup Maker documentation.
