Give special attention to your content  - DC Joomla Popup Plugin using Colorbox

If you have created a website and have been trying to get attention to a particular piece of content, such as people to like your Facebook page, or getting people to subscribe to your mailing list, there is a simple technique which you can use to give something much more attention.

To give this content particular attention, or a good call to action, you sometimes need to give your users a bit of a push by popping up content towards them when they visit. For example, the best way to increase Facebook likes is to popup your Facebook like button, with a call to action "Follow us on Facebook".

This Joomla extension is a plugin which allows you to decide which content you want to push, and then display it to your users via a popup to give it much more attention! We have used this on CollectiveRay to grow our subscriber list significantly.

The following are a few examples of uses of this plugin:

1) Increase Facebook fans, Twitter followers, or people in your Google+ Circles or other Social media

2) Increase subscribers to your newsletter

3) Attract attention to your other content

4) Popup an advert to your visitors to earn some additional income

5) Surveys or questions you want to ask to your visitors

This plugin provided here gives you a quick way to add a popup with whatever content is most suitable for your Joomla website. Simply insert the

Popup popup! HTML poup

Hello there!

I am a custom HTML popup which you can use to attract attention to stuff like your newsletter, your Facebook page, or anything else which you want to give lots of attention to.

Use me but don't abuse me, your users won't be too happy if you abuse me. Show me ONLY every so often!

The Custom HTML Popup Joomla plugin
tag in the article where you want the popup to appear, enter the HTML you want to display and this will be display the Joomla popup with the parameters you have specified in the plugin parameters.

It would really really help if you could spare the price of a beer / coffee or less to support hosting, development and other costs.

The plugin should be fairly easy to use. Install the plugin, put in your HTML such as the Facebook Like Box HTML, or your subscription HTML and enable the plugin. There are some more parameters you can customize such as the Title, Width and Height, whether you want the popup to Always Show, or once every 15 days, the amount of days between one display and the other, whether you want to display to guests, logged in users, or everybody and a few other parameters. Then go into the article where you want the Joomla Custom Popup to appear and insert {custompopup } (without any spaces).
