During this sale ONLY it comes with full developer (client/flipper) rights, and ALSO resale rights* too. When the sale is over these rights will be removed and will be an optional purchase, so this is the best time to get the plugin.

As usual I’m releasing a plugin that I wanted for my own purposes, and you also get the benefit from it too, and (as it’s new) you’ll get it at the lowest price it will ever be.

What does it do?

Magic Pop Alert allows you to add highly customisable “alerts” to your pages and posts for something you want to bring to your readers attention.

This might be an optin, a new product or feature article, or any kind of special offer.

There are several alert types built in, including text, news, contact, profile and YouTube videos.

You can set the video alerts to autoplay if you wish, and all of the alerts can appear (and disappear) either on a time delay or by the user scrolling down a number of pixels you define.

There are a LOT of features – too many to describe in any detail here, but here’s a bulleted list of the main feature set:-

  • 8 different content types
  • variable width (and height for YouTube videos)
  • Highly customisable alert appearance:-
  • 5 Different alert theme appearances
  • 3 Drop shadow styles
  • 3 Border radius styles
  • Header height
  • Background colours
  • Font colours, family and size
  • Border style, colour and thickness
  • 59 Alert icons
  • 5 Close icons
  • 9 Toggle icons
  • Alert preview in editor
  • Time delay open and close
  • Scroll down trigger
  • 4 Alert positions – bottom, top, left, right
  • Optional “close” icon
  • Optional “toggle” icon
  • Optional content display at alert appearance
  • Optional audio alert (currently Chrome browser only)
  • 5 different pleasant sounding audio alerts
  • 5 different appearance effects:-
  • Slide down
  • Slide up
  • Slide left
  • Slide right
  • Optionally hide the alerts for non-members (WP subscribers)
  • Optionally display on mobile devices
  • Optional “expiry” cooky
  • Add multiple alerts on a page/post basis
  • Add multiple alerts to the home page


Despite all those features, there are a couple more I’d like to add and I’m hoping to get those working in the next 7-10 days depending.

You should then get an extra level of control over the alerts.

Great looking demo. Looking forward to this tomorrow.

Frank Haywood

Hi Richard,

Thanks for that and long time no “speak.” 😉


Dexter Damien Chan

Hi Frank, I have seen your Demo and I can say that it’s really really good! I am definitely looking forward in getting a copy of it. Will it work with StudioPress Genesis Framework?

Frank Haywood

Hi Dexter,

Ah that nightmare question – “will it work with xyz?” 😉

I don’t see why not. Unless Genesis is a bit overbearing on how it integrates with WP, there shouldn’t be any problems.


Dexter Damien Chan

Hi Frank, I have gotten a copy of this and it works really well on Genesis Framework! Initially I got a shock that nothing appears on my site… Luckily I checked out the Home Page Alerts Setting and I got to set the Alerts that I want and it really work! Thanks for creating such a wonderful Plugin!

Frank Haywood

Hi Dexter,

Cool, thank you. When we get the other bits and pieces added it will make it even better. 🙂


Hi Frank – can this also be used as an exit pop? I have several exit pops, but most of them don’t work very well, or they’re missing necessary features.

Have you set a price for this yet? Sorry if you mentioned in in the video – YouTube is acting up and the video would only play for about 30 seconds or so and then a huge pause. Probably trying to watch it at their most busy time.


Frank Haywood

Hi Maury,

No it’s not intended as an exit pop but that’s a feature we should be able to add later – no promises on timescales for that one. This plugin is more of a way of bringing a special offer to a visitors attention and it does that either on a timer or when the reader scrolls down the page. (As it’s possible to add several Pop Alerts to a page or post you have to be careful not to go a bit overboard, but I added several to the demo page.)

What kind of features are you looking for in an exit pop? 😉

(I thought I’d released one of these last year but no, and I can’t find anything in my earlier releases either.)

As this plugin is a fairly big one, the starting price is $12.50 for 24 hours and then up to $15 for a few days and finally $27.


Hi Frank
I assume that this plugin will work at the same time as having your slide up ad plug in activated. I have tried other pop ups similar to this one which have clashed with the slide up.

Hi Geoff,

If you’re positioning the Pop Alert at the bottom of the page, then the alert will cleanly appear *underneath* the Slide Up Ads – in other words the Slide Up Ad will appear on top of the Pop Alert, thereby obscuring it until the Slide Up Ad is closed. There isn’t an option to make them appear above, but I think it’s better to appear underneath, only showing after the Slide Up Ad has been dealt with by the reader.

I think as long as you know that then it’s easy to decide where to position your alerts.


OK Frank,

I’ll bear that in mind when I set them Up…

Just bought 😉

Frank Haywood


hi frank

great looking plugin, just one question before I buy, can the alerts be post or category specific? for example if I wanted the alert to appear on just one post or a specific category, is this possible?



Frank Haywood

Hi Wayne,

Yes the alerts are page/post specific, but no not by category. I’ll have a think about that.


Patrick Bardet

Hi Franck,
I’ve checked the demo on my Samsung Android phone and it displays very correctly.
Think you build it with responsive design in mind ?


Frank Haywood

Hi Patrick,

Yes there’s an option to show/hide on mobile devices. It all depends on the width of the alert you create as to how successfully it will display, so you need to do a little experimentation until you’re happy.


Bruce Walker

Nice plugin and great buy at $12.50.

I do have one feature request. You have the ability to turn off the alerts for “non members”. What would be equally advantageous is:

(1) To be able to turn off alerts for “members”. This way we can show ads selling a membership and won’t be driving existing members nuts.


(2) Allow users to check a box “Do not show again” for returning visitors (i.e. drop a cookie). Of course we’d want the ability to hide this option.

Just an idea…


Frank Haywood

Hi Bruce,

#1 – Yep, I like that and it makes perfect sense. Watch this space.

#2 – Ditto. I don’t know why we didn’t add that in the first place. The Slide Up Ads plugin works that way, so Pop Alert should do it too.

Thanks for the feedback. 🙂
