Cherry PopUps


Cherry PopUps is a standalone plugin, however it depends on the Cherry Framework package that comes with the plugin by default. You don’t need to download any additional modules manually, just be aware of this dependency.

Flexible Settings

When it comes to customization, Cherry PopUp offers many options to choose from. You can freely modify the look of your pop-up windows by defining its shape, color scheme, background type, etc.
Here is a list of options that you can use to reshape your pop-ups:

  • Popup layout type: allows you to choose between center, center & full width and bottom & full width views;
  • Show/Hide animation: allows you to apply fade, scale or move up animations;
  • Base style preset: offers several styles for a better compatibility of your pop-ups with the design of your website;
  • Popup content type: allows you to choose between subcribe, login register or simple popup type;
  • Show once: PopUp will appears just once and won’t come up when you close it;
  • Base style settings: popup style settings( background type, background color, opacity, width, height, padding, border radius);
  • Overlay settings: overlay style settings( type of overlay, overlay background color, overlay opacity, use Overlay as close button );
  • Custom openning event: define event(click, hover) type and selector for current popup;

You can also enable, disable or customize the overlay that will cover the content of your page when the pop-up is on.
Open and Close settings define the conditions under which pop-up windows show up and hide.

Easy integration with Mailchimp

One of the best ways of using pop-ups is for collecting emails via integrated newsletter subscription forms. Cherry PopUp is insegrated with Mailchimp out of the box, so you can leverage its functionality to increase traffic and user engagement of your website.
In order to connect Mailchimp to your website, just input your Mailchimp API Key and List ID.

Login & Registration form

Responsive Frontend Login and Registration forms. Add your login form in the frontend easily (page or post). And also the registration form.

Customizable templates

The plugin offers simplified templating system for .tmpl files. 13 templates are available by default:

  • default-popup.tmpl – Main template for displaying popup with all available macros.
  • default-simple-popup.tmpl – Template for displaying popup without subscribe form macros.
  • default-subscribe-popup.tmpl – Template for displaying popup without content macros.

Cherry PopUp plugin supports templates, which can be quickly modified using macros:

  • TITLE – Title of your pop-up window;
  • CONTENT – General content;
  • SUBSCRIBEFORM – To place a Mailchimp email subscription form;
  • LOGINFORM – Login form;
  • REGISTERFORM – Register form;

All you need is to create a template file with the macros listed above, and upload it to the templates folder.

Standard templates can be rewritten in the theme. For that you need to create cherry-popups folder in the root catalog of the theme and copy the necessary templates in there. You can also add your own templates. For that you need to create a file with .tmpl extension in the same folder.

Double pop-ups

You can enable two pop-up windows simultaneously: for example, one at the beginning, and one at the end of the page.

Popup Identification on static page

If standard settings are not enough for identifying visible section, there is a metablock that allows you to add a particular popup to any static page.

Social login

The login form allows registering using social network accounts. To use this option one needs to install additional WordPress Social Login plugin.


This plugin is used to display popups of your projects on a site page. It has its own settings page which allows to save, reset and set default options. With its help you will be able to create various kinds of popups and manage them the way you like.

This plugin has great options but keeps it simple at the same time - love it! One problem though, the "only show once" option seems to log the fact that it has shown the popup at the beginning of the timer when showing onload, which means if they navigate away during this time, it won't show the popup because it thinks it already has.

I wanted to like this plugin (it seemed to be very easy and intuitive to set up), but it has a major flaw which prevents it from being usable at all - it hijacks sites built with SiteOrigin's PageBuilder and forces the code into the default editor. I verified this with a clean copy of WP and SO's Page Builder. It seems as if there are also major code errors in the latest version based on this detailed analysis by another WPuser: It's too bad, for it seemed to have potential. I would have put a support ticket in beforehand, but the developer hasn't responded to any of them in 11 months. I'll keep an eye out in the future, as I'm willing to revise my review if the plugin is fixed; it looked promising.
