How do you make an unblockable exit popup?

by shano 6 replies
Somebody please tell me how this is done or what software is needed for it. Ideally I'd like the old fashioned exit popup where I can have a page of my choice pop up on exit. I don't think that can be made unblockable.

So my next choice would be for a message (perhaps a layer in the HTML code) to pup up, and on this message I can have a link to the page I specify. The message, naturally would tell the reader why he should click on the link. And this message box should be totally unblockable in any browser.

I know how to do this with a message that is activated by the cursor position, but that's not what I want. I want it to pop up when the visitor actually clicks on the close-page icon in the upper right of the screen.

I know how to do it with that standard popup box that has a couple of confusingly labeled buttons to click on. I don't want that. I want the reader to be able to click on a button or link with my specified label and my specified destination URL.

There's a traffic exchange service that provides an unblockable exit popup box with five ads in it, each with a link to click on to get to that advertiser's web site. That's the kind of popup I want, not with five ads, but with my own ad.

Ideally, I'd like to see the actual code that generates the popup -- as opposed to having a program that generates encrypted JavaScript for the popup.

I'd appreciate any advice on this. I know HTML very well, and JavaScript and PHP somewhat.

    There are any number of unblockable popup scripts. Just Google and you'll find 'em.

    But...

    I want it to pop up when the visitor actually clicks on the close-page icon in the upper right of the screen.
    Maybe someone will shoot me down in flames but I'll stick my neck out and say that I don't think this is possible.

    The close (cross - top right) action will happen whatever code you have on the page itself because it's managed by the operating system (eg Windows) and not the browser's page rendering engine.

    Somebody tell me I'm wrong!

    Cheers,

    That's right, not possible.

    The closest you can get is where your visitor's mouse cursor is moving near the top of the screen... so you're assuming they're about to click the close button.

    Popups and more commonly these days popovers should serve a purpose and for most of us it is to collect email addresses to build an opt in list. A lot of people still find these annoying and I know I usually close them off as soon as they appear.

    Use discretion when including a popup/over and your page. I think you should always include the option to close it, this should be non negotiable.
