Exit Modals Getting Started

Exit Modals Getting Started Guide

This guide will get you started with Exit Modals and on the road to delivering powerful messages to your audience.

Exit popups use our Soft Exit Detection technology to open a modal when a user is about to leave your site. If a user’s cursor exits the body of your website at the top, it’s because they are either clicking the back button, entering another URL or closing the browser. Soft Exit Detection predicts this behavior, and it will trigger your Exit Popup to open immediately.

In this guide, we’re going to show you how you can get some Exit Popups on your website in minutes.

Download & Insall

Once you’ve downloaded and installed this addon, you will now have the Exit Modals Menu available for use.

Enable Exit Modals

Site Wide

Enable Exit Modals

Enable Exit Modals by selecting one of your existing modals from the drop down menu.

Notice the only tab displayed states Site Wide, so selecting one of your modals from the drop down now enables that modal to popup automatically throughout your website. Before we get into the specifics of settings, let’s cover Exit Modals Per Page/Post.

Per Page/Post

For enabling an Exit Modal on a per page/post basis, you’ll want to edit the page/post itself.

Enable Exit Modals Per Page/Post

You can set an Exit Modal to only open on a page or post by using the Modal Editor at the bottom of your page or post.

At the bottom of your WordPress Page/Post you’ll find the EasyModal Page/Page Editor. Maximizing it will display a list of your existing modals, which you can pick and choose from which to load.

Loading & Calling Your Exit Modal

Selecting one of your popups from the Exit Modal Drop Down will Load and Call it automatically either Per Page/Post or Site Wide depending on your preference. You don’t have to check any boxes or use any code – it happens automatically.

Exit Modal Settings

Cookie Time

Set the cookie time to your preference in plain English. For example, “364 days 23 hours 59 minutes 59 seconds” will reset just before 1 year exactly. Leaving this setting blank will default the cookie time to 0 seconds.

Site Wide Cookie

If you’re applying Site Wide, generally, you’ll want to check this so people don’t continuously get flooded by your popups (especially if you set the cookie time to a small value.)

For example, if you don’t check this box and a user views your Exit Modal on the Home Page, then they come back 5 minutes later, this time entering a different page, the popup will be viewed again if triggered by Soft Exit Technology (even though the cookie didn’t expire) because they entered on a different page.

Or, if your cookie time is low, leaving this unchecked could cause users to see your popup numerous times in a session. Of course, if this is what you want, then you’re welcome.

In the end, checking this box will prevent these scenarios from happening by preventing the modal from auto opening on any page until the cookie expires.

All Done

You’re all done – like we say, Exit Modals in minutes. If you have any questions, head over to our Support Page, or check out the Exit Modals Addon Page for more information.
