Just scroll down the page & it will show pop-up alert to subscribe for product availibity. Further more you can add feature in popup like "subscribe & get 10% discount" when this product available again.

I guess it will be great sale booster as customers will prompt to subscribe if some discount is available for product. You can further custmze the module like first 10 subscribers will get 20% discount & you can display stats like "Only 3 more customers will get this offer" if 7 people have already subscribed for the product notification.

I don't know you can add this feature in your module or not. I am just sharing the idea :)



Thanks for sharing good example! In my opinion such behaviour can be reached by customizing Popup Anywhere to work with Product Notifications module. Product Notifications module has the feature that allows customers to subscribe to out of stock products and get email notifications as soon as they are back in stock. Unfortunately discounts that you describe are not available in the module. But it can be customized of course. And more likely such discounts must be the part of Product Notifications module.
So I think it's better to customize both modules instead of making duplicate functionality in the Popup Anywhere. Anyway it's nice idea, thank you!

Hi
I've been trying to install this module but have hit a problem.
I am getting a warning
Please wait ...
popup_anywhere.sql [FAILED] BLOB/TEXT column 'content' can't have a default value

I am running this as a local test.
MySQL server 5.1

In case anyone else runs into the same issue I fixed it by following these instruction:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3466872/why-cant-a-text-column-have-a-default-value-in-mysql

How to disable strict mode in MySQL 5 (Windows):
Edit /my.ini and look for line
sql-mode="STRICT_TRANS_TABLES,NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER,NO_E NGINE_SUBSTITUTION"
Replace it with
sql_mode='MYSQL40'
Restart the MySQL service (assuming that it is mysql5)
net stop mysql5
net start mysql5
If you have root/admin access you might be able to execute
mysql_query("SET @@global.sql_mode='MYSQL40'");


It seems this is a 'bug' with using MySQL on windows.

Re: Pop-up Anywhere module released
 
Is there an easy way (ie, without manually setting this up for every product) to have this trigger for specific products? Can I integrate this in with extra fields, or a custom coded checkbox, for example? I have a fair amount of product (in the hundreds, which is still only a fraction of my online inventory) that is special order and takes an additional timeframe for it to arrive. People are seriously stupid and don't read - I want this to pop up and alert them then they're viewing the product (and, ideally, whenever they're checking out and have appropriate items in their cart).

Is that possible, somehow?

Thanks! :)

We have purchased this module in the sale that X-Cart currently has, but it's been a pain in the ass so far.

The installer doesn't work due to X-Cart POS being installed, so it has to be installed manually (patching all files) & running the database queries.

And once it's been setup, it refers to non-existent (on the X-Cart installation) Jquery versions so I get 404 errors on my page, unexpected CSS token errors and other errors.

I've opened a ticket, but since my ticket about a bug in the Product Notifications mod is also being ignored I'm a bit hard headed about if this will be solved.

I almost forgot, the worst bug is enabling the default Facebook-like popup (just for testing). As a customer, if I close the popup, it disappears. However, every single page that you visit, the popup will reappear. Annoying as hell.

Dear herber@wirehub.nl,

I recommend you to contact our support team with the issues because it requires investigation at your server. Although it does not seem to be a problem of Pop-up Anywhere addon (we couldn't reproduce it within the bugtracker ticket on a default X-Cart installation), it still may be our bug. If so, you won't be charged for the fix.

My bug ticket is already closed.

I suggested fixes for the faulty CSS, but apparently the following code is not wrong:
Code:

min-height: 5px; !important;

But we all know it most definitely is, as this is correct:
Code:

min-height: 5px !important;
(notice the closure with ; after the 5px in the faulty Popup Anywhere CSS.
This happens multiple times.

Hi. Is there any way to change the % decimal? Right now it shows: 10.00%

We would just like it to be 10%

Also - I'm not seeing that the popup module works in my responsive template. Do I need to do something to make that happen?

Thanks!

Hi Kara!

Most likely a tiny template modification is needed but I recommend you to make sure it's true with our technical support. Same with responsive tamplate.

Thank you.

Is it possible to generate the coupon code not just for those who likes facebook page, but also for those who press g+ button? Is it possible to combine Like and g+ buttons in one pop-up?
It looks like I can't find working demo link ...
