It is also necessary to mention that popups are mobile-friendly and work seamlessly on any screen or device.
Magento 2 Popup Extension: Backend
The Popup Pro Magento 2 extension is available under Content -> Popup Pro by Aheadworks -> Manage Popups.
The Manage Popups grid supports filters and sorting options, so you can easily find popups what you’ve been looking for. You can rearrange the position of each column as well as change the number of columns in the grid (use Columns menu). Mass actions are supported as well. You can change status or delete popups in bulk. As for available columns, they are:
- Customer Groups;
- Store View;
- Where to Display;
Information necessary for creating a new popup window is divided into the following sections: General Information, Where to Display, Popup Content, and Popup Design.
In General Information, you choose the status of the popup (enabled/disabled), any custom name, store view, and customer groups.
Then, select event for launching the popup (from five types available ), X parameter for the previous condition, animation effect (7 types available), and cookie lifetime in minutes (within this period the popup is not shown to a customer).
Next, you should specify where to display the popup. Depending on the option you choose, this section has different parameters. Thus, for a home page, shopping cart, and checkout, it is only necessary to specify the position of a popup window (9 options are available).
In case of product pages, you can set individual conditions for the popup to be displayed in addition to the position on a page.
As for catalog pages covered by the Magento 2 popup extension, you should also choose categories where to display the popup.
In the Popup Content section, you can rely on WYSIWYG editor.
Alternatively, you can hide it and use widgets and variables.
As for the Magento 2 popup extension’s Popup Design tab, it includes a window for custom CSS and a Preview button.
