During this pre-launch sale it comes with full developer (client/flipper) rights – these right will be an additional optional purchase after the sale, so now is the time to grab it.

Create Multiple Footer Ads Across Your Sites

With Active Footer you can create multiple footer ads that appear according to one of three rules. You can either have the ads appear immediately, after a number of seconds, or when the visitor scrolls down the page.


You can set a default active footer for posts and pages, the home page, and also archive pages. My suggestion would be to set the default active footer for the homepage and posts as an optin form.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

The ads themselves are constructed using the standard WordPress WYSIWYG editor, so you can insert text images and videos.


There are also options to add optin code which will auto-reformat to fit the footer, or you can choose to use social buttons.


If you choose to add an optin form, then the code that you paste in is parsed and auto-formatted to generate a form that will fit nicely into the footer area.



You can also edit the design of the optin form including labels and button styles.

There are also plenty of options to customise the design of each of the ads and you can select from a number of built-in backgrounds, or use the colour picker to choose border and background colours for the ad.


If you include social buttons on the active footer, then all you need to do is add the links to your social pages. Leaving them blank will automatically disable them from showing.


Finally, you can override the global settings for ads on a post by post and page by page basis.


All in all Active Footer is quite a flexible plugin.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

During this pre-launch saleย it’s just $10 and comes with full developer (client/flipper) rights – these right will be an additional optional purchase after the sale, so now is a good time to get this cool plugin. When the sale ends the plugin will be taken off the market until official launch.

Looks good Frank. I’ve been using Aweber Footer Slideup but it has the disadvantage of not being fully responsive – in other words the footer elements rearrange but the height of the slide-up bar won’t adjust, so the elements end up off-screen. In fact I had to manually hack around to adjust the CSS just to get enough height to properly display the basic elements in the first place, right out of the box. The only good thing is that the bar gracefully degrades so does not show at all for small-screen devices.

This plugin Active Slideup looks much better. Not only does the height automatically adjust and the elements re-arrange for smaller displays, but it’s much more flexible as to the content I can put in the bar. Plus I like the delayed display feature as well as the ability to selectively specify which bar goes on which page(s).

The price is right so I’ll be giving AS a try to replace my current slide-up.

Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes I like it too. It looks like for a while at least we’re going to have to live with a simpler web to support mobile devices. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just the way it is for now and I’m okay with that.

I have quite a few changes to implement on this blog that I’ve been putting off for one reason or another, and I guess it’s about time to do it now. One of the things I’ve got to replace is the current slide up. It’s been good, but I think it’s time for a change. Active Footer will be one of those changes.

Is the footer on this page created using this plugin?


Frank Haywood

Hi Bruce,

No it isn’t. That’s a cool plugin called Slide Up Ads and which has been very good (and will still remain in use on some of my other sites) and responsible for a lot of subscribers, but as I said in my previous reply, I think it’s time for a change. I want to make this particular blog responsive as I know that there’s an increasing number of people using mobile devices to browse it.


Hi Frank – question.

Instead of an Aweber (or whoever) autoresponder code, could we use a shortcode of say – Contact Form 7, or Fast Secure Contact Form – ?

In not, will this support Mail Chimp free version?


Hi Frank – I bought this and I really like it! One issue and a suggestion.

1) If I choose “color” for the background of the footer, it would not stick and kept showing up as transparent even though I saved it properly. Annoying, but no worries as I just used one of the other built in colors instead.

2) Suggestion: It would be nice if you added a “Click to add the PG Active Footer to this page” check box that would show up on each page, because it now appers on ALL pages and there are a few pages I don’t want it on.

Otherwise great plugin – I love it AND it’s plalying nice with one other popup plugin I’m using!

Thanksd very much!

Hi Maury,

#1 – I wonder if that’s theme specific? At any rate I’m glad you came up with a workaround. ๐Ÿ™‚


Never mind my suggestion #2, you’ve already done that. I just didn’t see the setting.


BTW, is this plugin suposed to render corectly on a mobile phone? Just curious.

Frank Haywood

Hi Maury,

Yes it does, although I’ve just noticed that in some circumstances the X to close it doesn’t show even though it’s there and still works. I’ll get that looked at.
