How do I test my popup?

Testing your popups before they go live on your site is an essential process to installing them. This is why we're trying to make the process as easy as possible for you.

You can test your popup using two methods depending on what’s easiest for you.

  1. Enter Debug Mode

    When you’re creating or modifying a campaign there is a section under Web > Debug Mode > IP Address that provides an area where you can list any IP address you would like to permit access to this campaign. In other words, if you don’t have your IP on the list, you will not be able to see the popup specified by this campaign.
  2. Hidden Root URL

    If you can add a parameter to you URL that your website doesn’t naturally create you can specify that parameter in the Root URL section.

    Example: https://yoursite.com/store/item/19834234?rootKey=so234mera0ndomtstiring

    In the above example you can see that I entered a fake parameter called rootKey=… Nothing matters about what I call the key or the value, it’s only necessary that you enter the URL into the Root Location section of the Web > Filter > Root Location section that will make it only load from that specific URL.
  3. Installed separately

    If it’s easier for you, you can completely control when the Exitget plugin is installed by omitting the script tag that enables Exitget from your code. You can do your testing by either detecting that it you on your end and having the plugin dynamically included if it is or from a safe development location of your website. Once your testing is complete you can re-enable the plugin by simply adding the Exitget script tag back into your code.
