Scroll Triggered Boxes
Need opinions: re-hide the box? (21 posts)

    Right now, once the box has been triggered you can either close it or have it stay open. Another option would be to re-hide the box if a visitors scrolls back up.

    I need some opinions on this. Please use this topic to let me know if you would like a functionality like that and whether it should be by default or an option.

    If enough users reply, I'll implement it in the plugin.

    Hello Danny, and thanks for your great plugin !

    I don't see the benefit to re-hide the box, since the goal is that the visitor see it anyway.

    Maybe as an option ?

    I think it'd be a great idea. One of the reasons I use this plugin is because I like the unobtrusiveness of a scroll-triggered box versus a popup or lightbox. For me, the goal of the box is to engage the reader at the moment s/he finishes reading a post or page. If s/he chooses to scroll back up, I'd rather the box not follow him/her as there are other calls to action elsewhere on the page.

    Thanks for your input both!

    Will probably turn it into an option as the opinions are quite diversified.

    this would be a great addition, but there is one thing which is more important at the moment.

    responsive design. there should be an option not to show the box (or at least have it not overlap existing content) when the windows is small or the visitor is viewing the page on a mobile device.

    @veritasveritum - right now, if you set a box width in the box settings it will automatically be hidden for devices (or screens) where it doesn't fit. I might add some more options for different devices but please open a separate support topic for that so others can chime in. Thanks!

    I vote for re-hiding the box when the visitor scrolls back up.

    Looking forward for the auto hide on scrolling up again option. That would be awesome. Thanks Danny for the wonderful plugin.

    There's a slight problem. The auto scroll is working fine. But when I click on close, the STB closes and then when I scroll again, it appears back. I've set cookie to 1 day. So is it a bug?

    It was working in the previous version.

    First of all, THANK YOU, DANNY! Awesome add on.

    Secondly, I'm experiencing the same issue as UrbanJenny.

    Hi guys, I fixed this in v1.1.9.1 - is this still happening for you while on that version?
