Popups: Bottom Bar

Bottom Bars can be used for a variety of reasons, including announcements or options. Another common use of a popup bottom bar is to comply with the EU Cookie Consent law. In this example, we’ll quickly create a Cookie Consent banner. The bar will satisfy several requirements:

  1. Show on any page of the site. (Publish Settings > Conditions)
  2. Show immediately when the page loads. (Publish Settings > Triggers)
  3. Show an overlay to hide the site underneath. (Popup Settings > Settings Tab)
  4. Prevent scrolling of the site underneath. (Popup Settings > Advanced Tab)
  5. Only close when the user clicks the OK button, making sure to prevent closing when clicking the overlay or pressing ESC. (Popup Settings > Advanced Tab)
  6. Only show the popup once, so the user doesn’t have to continually deal with it on subsequent page views. (Publish Settings > Advanced Rules)

To adjust the Popup Settings, click the Popup Settings gear icon in the panel’s bottom toolbar. To adjust the Publish Settings, click the arrow next to the Publish / Update button and choose either Conditions, Triggers, or Advanced Rules.
