Let’s review each of these settings.

Deal with multiple popups showing at once

Nelio Popups allows you to open two or more popups at the same time. It may be the case that there are two or more popups defined at the same location, that can both be displayed. In that scenario, you can prevent opening a popup when there is another one that is already opened.

Show on mobile devices

By default, popups created with Nelio Popups are designed to resize responsively. If you need to disable a popup only on a mobile device to comply with Google’s Popup Policy for Mobile Devices, then check out how to disable popups on mobile devices with Nelio Popups.

Limit popup displays

Nelio Popups allows you to limit the number of times a visitor sees your popup. By limiting the popup opens per visitor, you avoid bothering your visitors, which may help you increase the effectivity of your popups.

Lock body scroll

When you open a popup that is not a fullscreen popup, you can still see your page below your popup. Visitors are able to scroll your page down if they want. But you can change this behavior by activating the ‘Lock body scroll’ checkbox.
