How to Create and Display a Popup by Post Tag Using Elementor

As we mentioned above that you have many options to create a popup in WordPress. In this tutorial we will show you how to create and display popup by post tag using the Elementor Pro version, so make sure that you’ve already had one.

Step 1: Create the Popup Template

The first thing that you have to do is create a new popup template. To create a new popup template, go to Templates > Popups on your WordPress dashboard and click the Add New button.

Then add the name of your popup and click CREATE TEMPLATE button.

It will direct you to the template library, you can choose a template from the library window or you can design your popup template. To use any template on your library window, just click the Insert button. But in this tutorial, we will create the popup template from the scratch. Click the X icon to close the template library.

Step 2: Adjust the Popup Setting

We need to do some adjustments in the popup setting before start creating a popup template. You can find the best settings for your site. In this tutorial, we will show you the popup settings for your preference. Click the gear icon on the bottom-left corner. In the popup settings, change the Width to 90 viewport width (VW), and Position to Center-Bottom.

Step 3: Design the Popup

Next, design your popup template. Add a new section and select the 5-column structure. In the section settings, set the Width to 950. You can play around with your settings. For example, you can go to the Style tab to set the background, go to the Advanced tab to customize the margin, and many more.

Now back to your columns. On the left column, set width to 33%, and for the other four is 16%.

On the left column, we will add a Heading widget with some text. You can add some text that contains an invitation to your website visitors to visit your other content that is relevant to the current content or any text you want. On the right, we will add an Image widget. You can add some images from thumbnail/ featured images of posts or manually upload the images.

Now the structure is ready. Go back to Popup Settings to customize entrance animation, exit animation, and margin. In this tutorial, we set the entrance to Fade In Down and for the exit animation to Fade Out Up. Next, go to the Advanced tab and then set the margin to 30 (link value together).

Step 4: Publish the Popup

So now the design is ready, let’s click the PUBLISH button to set the display conditions and trigger. To set the display condition, click the ADD CONDITION button and select your option from the dropdown. Since you want to display the popup by post tag, you can set the following display conditions (see the GIF).

Click Next. On the Triggers tab, set the trigger to On Scroll by switching the toggle to Yes. Set the Direction to Down, and set the Width to 95%. Because we want the popup to show when the visitors reach the end of our article.

In this tutorial, we’re not going to set any Advanced Rules. So click on SAVE&CLOSE. Well, now we’re done. Let’s see what it looks like.
