To get a detailed overview of how the Quick Builder Tabs work, you can check out this documentation.
Step 1: Go to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to wp-admin -> NotificationX -> NotificationX. Then right at the top, click on ‘Add New’.
Step 2: After you are done with step 1, you will be redirected to the ‘Source’ Tab page of your NotificationX. You can also put a title. Use the drop-down menu to select ‘Comments’ as your Notification type and pick ‘WordPress’ as Comment type. Then click on the ‘Next’ Button.
Step 3: From the ‘Design’ tab, you can choose a layout and also have the flexibility to use the ‘Advanced Design’ option to customize it as per your preference. From the ‘Themes’ section, the chosen layout is how the ‘Comments’ notification will be displayed on your website.
You can modify your chosen Theme by customizing it through ‘Advanced Design’ option. From this section, you will be able to easily add styling to your design, image appearance and typography. You can add Background or Text color for notification popup. Besides, you can also add a Border and add styling to it.
‘Image Appearance’ section lets you change the ‘Image Shape’ to out of these three: Rounded, Circle & Square. You can also use the drop-down menu ‘Position’ to change the position of the image: Left or Right. Comments popup consists of Three rows. From the ‘Typography’ section, you can change the Font Size for each row as well.
Step 4: You will then be redirected to the ‘Content’ tab from where you can modify your ‘Notification Template’ and add your preferred content text.
NotificationX offers ‘Notification Template’ for your Content. You can easily go ahead and choose your preferred variables. These variables help to display the name of the user who has commented on a specific page/post in a certain time interval. Besides, you can also add your own text which will be showing up in the notification popup.
For example, with the Content settings, your notification popup will display content such as this ‘John Doe commented on Example Post Title 1 hour ago’. From ‘Link Options’, you can pick a ‘Link Type’ for your notification popup. Simply click on the ‘Next’ button to continue.
Step 5: In the ‘Display’ tab, there are two available sections: Image & Visibility. From the ‘Image’ section, you can use the checkbox to display default image or an avatar in the notification popup. If the users don’t have any ‘Avatar’ set in their profile, you can simply display the ‘Default’ image by selecting the ‘Default Image’ checkbox. As long as the users have avatars, by checking the ‘Show Gravatar’ option, you will be able to view the ‘Avatar’ of the users who have made comments.
From the ‘Visibility’ section, you can set the pages where you want to display the Comments notification. You also have the option to restrict the notification popup based on certain user roles: Always, Logged In & Logged Out.
By default, ‘Show On’ is set to ‘Show Everywhere’ as a result the Comments notification will be displayed in every single page of your website. On the other hand, you can also specify the pages where you want to display or hide the ‘Comments’ popup. After you click on the ‘Next’ button, you will be redirected to the ‘Customize’ tab.
Step 6: Under the ‘Customize’ tab, you will find three separate sections: Appearance, Timing & Behavior. From the ‘Appearance’ section, you can set the position where you want to display the Comments notification and use the checkbox to disable/enable ‘Close Button’ & ‘Hide on Mobile’ options. You can set the position for Comments popup to either at the Bottom Left or Bottom Right side of your website. You can also show a ‘Close Button’ which can be clicked to close the WP Comments. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to hide the ‘Comments’ popup for mobiledevices if you want to as well.
Besides, you also have the freedom to set time for ‘Initial’, ‘Display For’ & ‘Delay Between’ options as per your preference from the ‘Timing’ section. You can set an initial time after which your ‘Comments’ notification will be popped up. By default, it is set to 5 seconds.
You can also set a time limit for how long you want your each notification popup to be displayed by modifying the ‘Display For’ field. To choose a time interval between two notifications of Comments, simply set the time in the ‘Display Between’ field.
From the ‘Behaviour’ section, you can choose to display the number of comments made for the certain passed days. By checking the ‘Loop Notification’ box, the notification popup will keep on displaying. You can disable this as well.
When a visitor clicks on the notification popup, you can control whether you want the linked to open in a new window or a new tab from the ‘Open link in new tab’ checkbox.
Step 7: After you have completed step 6, click on the ‘Publish’ button. As a result, the ‘WordPress Comments’ popup will be successfully created. By following these mentioned steps and a bit more modifying & styling, your final outcome would look like something like this.
