Support » Plugin: Popup Maker - Popup Forms, Opt-ins & More » Infinite Cookie / Multiple Targets

  • Resolved KennyLL


    Hi, I’m playing with this plugin along with Gravity Forms for an email list signup form. I’m new to pop-ups, so wondering about proper settings for a couple things:

    1) Should the cookie for a successful form submission be set to infinite time so the user doesn’t get bothered again about signing up? What is an appropriate time to put in the cookie?

    2) Can/should we assign 2 different cookies – one for someone closing popup and one for form submission? So closing may last a short period (1 month?), whereas form submission would last much longer (question 1).

    3) If we have both an Auto Open trigger (probably set to a time delay) along with a link in the footer to manually trigger the pop-up for those who want to signup, is there a way to have different targets for each? For instance, auto open would only occur on Home & blog pages, while manual link trigger should work everywhere.

    4) With cookies being stored, how do you successfully test the popup in development? Is using Incognito/Private browsing the best way?

    @kennyll – Sorry for the delay.

    1. Set the cookie length to 10 years should be sufficient. By then they will have a new PC and innevitably cleared cookies.

    2. Yes typically, that is what we do, 1 short cookie when they close, another long one when they submit.

    3. Not at this time, you would need 2 popups. You can use plugin like Post Duplicator to duplicate your popup.

    4. Depends, if your logged in you can use the Popup Maker toolbar to clear cookies for any given popup. Otherwise yes incognito is best.

    Hope that helps. If your issue is resolved please take a moment to rate and review the plugin or support.
