This was one of my own projects. Well, actually, it was spurred on by a client, but it became my own project. One day a client called me and asked me to put a pop up of a menu on the front page of his client’s website. Originally, I thought, “Yes, this should take about as long as it takes to do a search for ‘popup’ on the WordPress plugin repo,” but I was wrong, very wrong.
I can’t really remember how it all went down, but I do think a large part of it was my “fault.” I wanted the popup to have a little “Don’t show this, again” option at the bottom, but every single plugin I tried did not have that option. Well, what does a web developer do when he can’t find a prefabfricated solution? He doesn’t panic. Actually, he does the opposite. He comes alive. He enters his element.
From what I can remember, this plugin was actually in the making for a very long period of time. It was just on the recesses of my mind, and all it took was a little request from a client and a lack of an existing solution to push it over the precipice of my subconscious into my fully-aware consciousness.
Well, the plugin turned out very well, and the client was also happy. It was an overall success.
- I created plugin that lets you add content to a popup and have it popup on any page.
