Besides, you can also add a border and style it to your preference. Review alerts consist of three rows of content. From the ‘Typography‘ section, you can change the Font Size for each row as well.
Step 4: Configure Template Content #
You will then be redirected to the ‘Content’ tab where you can easily modify your ‘Notification Template‘ content and add your preferred text. From here, You have the freedom to choose a ‘Product Type’ from either theme or plugin. Then, you can just go ahead and add the slug of your product whose reviews you want to display. For instance, if the plugin URL is like this: ‘https://wordpress.org/plugins/sample-plugin/’ and then, the slug would be ‘sample-plugin’.
Besides, NotificationX offers a ‘Notification Template’ for your Content. You can easily go ahead and choose your preferred variables. These variables help to display the name of the users who have left reviews about your WordPress Product on a certain day. Besides, you can also add your own text which will be showing up in the notification popup.
Moreover, you can customize link types for the popup alert using ‘Link Options’ and even track the various types of campaigns through NotificationX as well. ‘UTM Control’ allows you to add ‘Campaign’, ‘Medium’, and ‘Source’ to your notification popup.
Step 5: Adjust Display Options #
In the ‘Display’ tab, there are two available sections: Image & Visibility. From the ‘Image’ section, you can use the checkbox to display the 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 the WordPress Review alert.
From the ‘Visibility’ section, you can set the pages where you want to display the WordPress Review 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 Review notification will be displayed on every single page of your website. On the other hand, you can also specify the pages where you want to display or hide the ‘Review’ popup. After you click on the ‘Next’ button, you will be redirected to the ‘Customize’ tab.
Step 6: Set Up The Appearance #
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 Review notification and use the checkbox to disable/enable the ‘Close Button’ & ‘Hide on Mobile’ options.
You can set the position for Review 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 Review. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to hide the ‘Review’ popup for mobile devices if you want to as well.
