We’ve got a new release of PopUp Domination out today featuring some awesome features, many in response to suggestions from you, our users. It’s already in your download links so go get it!
So what’s new?
Introducing IN-POST themes!
We’ve added the ability to add a styled form to the end of your posts or pages! Many customers love our product and swear by it’s results but just wish it wasn’t so “in your face” for their sites. These forms are also mobile friendly so you don’t need to lose those valuable mobile users!
Install themes from right within the PopUp Domination!
That’s right, you can now install any themes you’ve bought by just typing in your order number into a box in the theme installer menu! Along with this we also have a theme-less version of PopUp Domination available for those who find they can’t install the full plugin. This is a fully-functional version of PopUp Domination you can install then put your PopUp Domination order number into the theme installer and it’ll install the first theme that ships with PopUp Domination!
Reworked toggle switches!
At last! Never has there been a bigger support issue than these toggles. At first they said “Disable” and “Enable” but this was confusing for people, the red Disable gave people the idea that their campaign was OFF when it was ON so we changed it in response. The button said ON or OFF, depending on whether the campaign was ON or OFF. The red OFF button caused more confusion as people would “not push a button that says OFF if I wanted to turn something on”! So we scratched our heads a bit more and went with the iOS style on|off on the same switch and we’re sure you guys will find this much more pleasant to use!
Multiple Mailing Lists!
You asked and we delivered! This has actually been a feature since version 3.5 but we’ve never made any announcement about it! This is also the reason that the 3.5 series are not in your automatic updates within WordPress itself. If you are using a version of PopUp Domination pre version 3.5 you’ll need to re-save your mailing list and then actually attach that to the popups you want to use. There’s a walkthrough of setting up a campaign using this new method here which can be helpful for those used to the older interface.
So what are multiple mailing lists and how does it help? Well, put simply, you can create different campaigns, popup or in-post, where each can collect email addresses to a different list, so you can run different promotions etc and put people in the list most appropriate to them. This can even use different mailing list providers for different lists!
You’ve long had the option to opt-in to email within PopUp Domination but now we’ve extended this to allow you to set an email address to be notified of any opt-ins REGARDLESS of mailing list. So you can still collect to your mailing list without having to manually add them if you had set it to opt-in to email. We’ve also responded to your suggestions and added a notification in the email as to which of the popups were used to sign up by the submitter.
New !FREE! Drupal Module!
If you are a customer who uses the standalone version of PopUp Domination in your Drupal site you’ve probably found it a pain that your popups need to show on *all* the pages that share your <head> section. Well, fret no more! We’ve written a small Drupal module that allows you to select the individual pages on your site to target with your popups, simply paste your PopUp Domination supplied code into the box in the module and select your pages to let it handle the pages to show the popups on! This is a first release so any Drupal users who want to give us feedback on this we’d appreciate it! We are always trying to make things better for our customers where we can! We’re providing this module at the best price of all, TOTALLY FREE!
AdBlock has been preventing sites from presenting their customers with their PopUp Domination offers for some time now, losing the customers and the site’s owners possible business leads and/or freebies. We’ve released a plugin that works alongside PopUp Domination (and will eventually be integrated with PopUp Domination) to help get around this, at least for the time-being! If you think you’re losing out to potential custom because of ABP then feel free to try this out too.
Lots of other tweaks and changes…
- updated icons
- new menu layout
- fixed broken images
- lots of bugs squashed
- updated theme backup system
- added ?pdref=1 override to prevent links with that appended from showing popups
- analytics fixes and more…
Remember if you’re updating from pre 3.5 you’ll need to re-attach your mailing list (so copy it before upgrading) – 3.5 and up should update with no problems and save all your current settings while adding the newer features and fixes.
