Creating a popover Gravity Form in combo with MailChimp

  1. Hey!

    This isn't specifically a question relating to the MailChimp addon per se, so I wanted this to go in the mainstream forum.

    Using aWeber I can insert a popover form on to my site.

    I wondered if there was any way we could code a Gravity Form to popover my website so that I could incent people to subscribe to my newsletter.

    Is this possible? If so, how can I do it?

    Basically I want the form to pop over after the average time per visit, so that people can have a good chance to look around before having the option to subscribe.

    I'm looking for alternatives right now to Joost's Gravity Forms widget plugin which doesn't seem to be compatible with WP 2.9.2.

    Thanks for all your help!

    I am currently using Joost's Gravity Forms Widget on a few sites - all running 2.9.2, so not sure why the reference to it being incompatible.

  3. You should be able to find any popover script that works for you, add it to the page and use the function call to load the form in the popover.

    The only issue you may run into is with validation. The form refreshes the page on submit, so the popover won't be readily visible if there are validation errors. You can embed the form on a blank page elsewhere and use an iframe in the popover to solve this problem.. very much like the modal form is done.
