Hallelujah! I have been looking for something exactly like this for ages. This is a simple, intuitive and effective tool, right out of the box. Loads of helpful hints, the ability to add custom styling within the plugin settings. And a cookie setting to hide display after closing the message box, so visitors aren't annoyed by repeat display of the box. I also like the fact that the plugin adds a tab to the menu in the dashboard, making it easy for site admins and editors to find the interface for the plugin. Awesome! I only wish I had found it ages ago.
A suggestion to the developers: perhaps add some additional tags to assist others find this great little tool like "slide-in information box", "important messages", "unobtrusive pop-ups" etc.
Hats off to the developers!
Ce plugin travaille bien.
Totally customizable and unobtrusive. Perfect on mobile. I don't review plugins, but I'm reviewing this one - it's a diamond in the rough. Using for email signups on payetteforward.com articles. Oh yeah, you can set it to appear on the last paragraph of the post (or anywhere) with simple CSS, and set a cookie for how long until it reappears again. This plugin is gold. It doesn't look like the popups other people are using, but it's even more powerful than them because of it's simplicity and customizability. This plugin is a breath of fresh air for anyone who's struggled to make the fancier plugins look the way they want them to. Thank you so much.
I feel the need to add a disclaimer: I don't know the developers, I downloaded the plugin today after finding it on Google, and I am in no way affiliated with it. Totally unbiased review.
Awesome plugin with lots of feature. Looks good in frontend. The visual editor makes perfect for editing. Thanks a lot for the plugin
I was happily surprised at how easy this was to set up & use. I'm using it to hold an Email Subscriber form (another great plugin) & they work perfectly together. Thanks!
I've been using STB for a few months now to gather email subscribers or promote various specials that I have on the blog.
For example, if I want to promote a tutorial on starting a blog I create a new slide out box and show it all over the site. You can see an example over on BlogTyrant.com - it converts extremely well.
Highly recommend this plugin for anyone who wants a new way to promote content without being too invasive.
it is like a brainstorming..working with this plugin makes fun and raises ideas because everything works fine...just out of the box.
Notifications, Promo links, subscription popup...really great stuff without annoying lite and pro version, setting up any kind of account. fair, efficient and absolutely free.
btw. works as well on mobile devices....
This is a great plugin and hard to believe the basic version is free. Use it all the time and never have had any trouble with it. An absolute essential. One of the many brilliant features is the "Show this box if URL is". This is so well thought out.
This plugin is becoming better and better, to the point where I want to use it on every site I create.
The developers are open to suggestions to improve the plugin features and communication is excellent.
Cannot recommend enough!
Easy and simple to use but could be simplier by just clicking which pages we want the boxes to be on.
Also, would it be possible to set the x on the center right of the window ?
And to choose to have the close cross or not ?
