Display Options and Publishing

There are four types of display options, which you can use to publish your forms on your WordPress site:

  • Embedded
  • Popup
  • Topbar
  • Scrollbox

Open your form, click on Display Options button from the top of your form to go to these settings. Embedded type lets you place your form on individual pages or posts.

Whereas Popup, Topbar and Scrollbox can be published on general website view at once. These three views have the following settings for publishing:

Display on. Allows choosing the post types, where the popup, topbar or scrollbox forms are going to display. For example, you can select Homepage, and they will be appearing on your website homepage only.

Display on these categories. If Categories option is selected from Display on, you can use this setting to choose the category pages, where you need the subscription form to appear.

Display on these posts / Display on these pages. You can select specific posts and pages, where your popup, topbar or scrollbox should be displayed. Simply click on these inputs and select necessary posts and pages.

Always show for administrator. Enabling this setting will let website admins to always see the subscription form, regardless of being subscribed to the list. This will come handy in case you are still testing your form.

Frequency. This indicates the period, after which your form will appear again for visitors, who have closed it or already subscribed to your list. In case you wish to have the popup appearing always, have the value set to 0.

Also you can set the form not to display on phones and tablets using Hide on Mobile option.

Scrollbox forms

One of the layouts for displaying forms is Scrollbox. It adds a form box which is triggered and opened upon scrolling the page. It can be placed on the left or right side of the content with Position option. As the case of Popup type, you can set Loading Delay for the form to appear a few moments later after page loading is finished.

The form with Scrollbox display type can appear at a certain point of the page. Using Trigger Point setting you can define the percentage of the page height, and the form will appear after the user scrolls down to that point.

You can let users minimize the form scrollbox or close it by activating Allow Closing the bar and Allow Minimize options. With Minimize Text you can have a custom placeholder text for the form block after visitor minimizes it.

If you want the form to be hidden after users scroll back to top, enable Auto Hide option.
