Very good plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Very good plugin. Compatible with my blog. The scroll box appears as it should. But there is one thing could be tweaked. As I am using jetpack subscribe plugin as well which can be seen all the time on website. As soon as new subscriber fills the form I get email notification about that step, but email itself does not stick to jetpack email subscriber list. The list could be somewhere on dashboard and every time somebody fill that, one more line added+ also function to download in txt/doc/csv. to save some time

By the way: maybe anybody from contributors could explain, how to link my trigered box and mailchimp, so all my emails from subscribers go there?

Anyway it is working, so I can not complain and does it function :)

The plugin does exactly what it says on the tin and extremely flexible.

You can see it in action here for those wanting demo:

Working well
By , for WP 3.8.3

Needed the help of a WordPress expert to get it going (it didn't work out of the box for me), but it's finally up and running now at http://www.evaneverman.com.

Seems to do exactly what it says it does. Just installed today - will see how it impacts newsletter subscriptions.

NGINX aside, this was a 5 star experience for me
By , for WP 3.8.1

Update to my earlier review:
Version 1.4 of scroll triggered box released today. It now supports Gravity Forms shortcodes and integrates to any email solution that GF supports (Constant Contact, Aweber...). v1.4 also negates my comment about no recent releases. I tested 1.4 and the GF shortcode in place of the default form markup worked great. Kudos to pk2000.
================================================================
I read the 3 reviews here that weren't 5 stars - one of them from Joost who carries a lot of weight in SEO land - and so initially installed another scroll triggered box plugin instead of this one.

That was a mistake. It cost me a lot of time and troubleshooting before I circled back to this one. I was blown away when I finally tried it that the plugin was so insanely easy to install and get running - under 5 minutes in my case - and it came styled beautifully out of the box. I'm a front end developer who styles for a living - but this plugin saved me that time.

Caveats:
This is a free plugin with no premium version that I can see, so what you get is what you have. There's no integration to the typical email solutions: aweber, constant contact, mailchimp and emails aren't saved in the database. Also, there hasn't been a new release in some time.

In case you're interested in what happened with the other plugin - the one I gave up on... First there were conflicts with some other plugins on the install, which was causing the scroll triggered boxes (stb) config settings not to save. A workaround was to disable all other plugins, configure stb, then reactivate the others again. That works ok in a development environment, but not so well in production.

The other issue with stb was this "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in .../plugins/scroll-triggered-boxes/includes/class-public.php on line 38". The dev, Danny Van Kooten, is a cool guy and responsive considering its a free plugin, but in this case it just wasn't an important enough part of the scope to continue working through all the issues.

The install I'm working on is hosted by WPEngine - which uses both Apache and nginx - and maybe if it were running on nginx I'd have had a problem like the others, but less than 15% of sites use nginx, so most won't need to worry about it.

Simple and works.

If it had the ability to make a few different popups show in random order, this plugin would get 6 stars!

Breaks site completely. Doesn't work with NGINX.
By , for WP 3.7.1

I should have listened to Joost, this plugin didn't work and on the top of that it broke my website. Gave 502 bad gateway error.

I had to manually login to my server, delete the plugin folder and then restart the server to regain the website. I lost visitors.
Damn.

Fit it, plugin author.

I think this is a better alternative: http://wordpress.org/plugins/scroll-triggered-boxes/

Beautiful but not user-friendly
By , for WP 3.8.1

There are no instructions for how to integrate this with my subscription service (Feedblitz). I've read in the forums to "add your code" but that's not helpful if code is not your thing. I have no idea where the email addresses are going when readers use the box. It would be helpful if there were better instructions to get it functional.
