If you work with any type of popups on your WordPress site, you’ll want to check out our WP Popups review.
WP Popups is a complete revamp of the popular Popups plugin, which is active on 70,000+ sites according to WordPress.org. Because the new WP Popups plugin makes such big changes, the developer opted to discontinue the original Popups plugin and let people migrate to the new WP Popups plugin on their own time.
The new version of WP Popups brings a visual template builder, tons of detailed display rules, including WordPress-specific conditions, and plenty more.
Depending on which version you’re using, you can use WP Popups for email opt-ins, CTAs, login/registration forms, idle activity notices, coupons, and lots more.
