Quick Box Popup

Quick Box (Notification Box) is another type of popup which is used to display quick access contents like contact, feedback, social media links etc. in the pages.
It has 2 sections, a title and the body.
The title section only will display in the pages when it loads. We can view the content when we click on the title.

The settings for the Quick Box are given below.

Quick Box


Quick box title

Title : We can enter the title of the Quick Box here.

Title font size : This is the font size of the title.

Title color : We can select the Title color here.

lightbox content

Content : This is the actual content of the quick box. You can enter anything here like text, image, subscription form, video, audio, shortcodes from other plugins etc.

We are using the WordPress default HTML editor  in the quick box Pop plugin and so you can see the visual as well as the HTML formats of the content.

There is also another setting, Show referrer URL based messages?

This is used to display some predefined messages for referred users (users referred from other sites).

Consider if you want to display a particular message to users who came to your site from another referrer site say google.
You can display a special message like “Hey googler, welcome to our site”, to those users who came from google.
For yahoo users, you can set another message and so on.
So the referrer messages are special messages for the referred users.
If you have enabled this option Show referrer messages?, the referred users will get the referrer messages and others will get the content added here.

Also if you want to display different messages for a user one after another, you can separate the content with the code {xyz_pop_content_break}.

Consider you want to display 2 popups to the visitor, one after other, you can add the 2 contents in the content section separated by the code {xyz_pop_content_break}. Now the user will get 2 popups one after other.

Position Settings

We can display the Quick Box in 12 positions.
