A Complete Guide to Popup Conditions

A popup condition is a rule that must be followed to make your popup appear. They are downright crucial for your popup to work. In other words, if you want your visitors to see your popups, your conditions need to be true for your popups to display!

In this tutorial, we’ll cover all of the conditions available in the Nelio Popups plugin.

How to Add a Popup Condition

When you create or edit a popup, you can add a condition by following these steps:

  1. Go to Nelio Popups » All Popups and edit the one you want.
  2. In the editor sidebar, go to the Settings panel, and open the Conditions tab.
  3. Modify the current condition or add a new one by clicking the ‘Add Condition’ button.
Popup condition settings.
Popup condition settings.

This will add a new condition to the current condition group. Note that each condition makes the current group more restrictive, because all the conditions must be met in order to show the popup. You can also create new condition groups by clicking the ‘Add Condition Group’ button.

With respect to the condition groups, the popup will be visible somewhere in your site if it mets the conditions on at least one of the condition groups you defined in the condition settings.

By combining conditions and condition groups you can establish complex rules to display your popup wherever you need it.
