How to create welcome messages

Locate the TOOLS tab in the left hand menu and click to open the secondary menu. Select MESSAGES to open up the welcome messages manager.

On this page you will see a PLUS (+) button. Click this to open a window where you can create a welcome message.

MESSAGE TITLE: In the first field you can title this welcome message. The title will not display on the CartLOVE tool, this field just allows you to name the welcome message for the benefit of personal organization.

MESSAGE TEXT: This is the field where you can enter the text you want to display in your welcome message. You can style the message using the format toolbar above the field where you can change the font, color, size, etc. The cap on this message is 60 characters

NOTE: If you choose to make the text larger than the default, you may be in danger of your message being cut off. Make sure to check it on your site after enabling it to make sure the text fits within the panel.

ENABLE STICKY OPEN: Now the next slider you see will be “Enable Sticky Open”. This is an optional display feature which allows your welcome message to stay displayed after it pops up until the user visits a different page on your site. If you want to limit the time the welcome message is displayed before another feature displays, do not enable this slider and go to the next section.

MESSAGE STAY TIME: Here you can set how long your message will appear for. The unit to enter in this field is measured in milliseconds. So for example, if you want your welcome message to stay displayed for three seconds, you would enter 3000 milliseconds since every second is 1000 milliseconds.

EXCLUDE FROM PRODUCT PAGES: The last slider labeled “Exclude messages from showing on product pages” will stop the welcome message from displaying on any product pages. Do not enable this if you want the welcome message to show on the first page the user visits even if it is a product page.

If you are satisfied with the details of your promotion, click CREATE.

How to manage welcome messages.

To manage your welcome messages, locate the TOOLS tab in the left hand menu and click to open the secondary menu. Select MESSAGES to open up the welcome messages manager.

At the top of the manager page you should see some general settings options which will apply to any welcome message you are displaying.

ENABLE WELCOME MESSAGE: This first slider will allow your welcome message to be displayed on the CartLOVE tool. If it is not enabled, the message will not appear.

SHOW AFTER MILLISECONDS: The next field is where you can set how long it will take for your welcome message to be showcased on your website. Every second is composed of one thousand milliseconds, so for example, if you want your message to display three seconds after a user lands on a page you would set this field as 3000 milliseconds.

Below these two general settings you will see a list of the welcome messages you’re created.

NOTE: You can only enable one welcome message at a time so be sure the one you want to display is enabled by using the slider next to the messages title. This will automatically save.
