Learning Exitget

Get to know everything about the Exitget platform.

How do I set where my popup should load?

By default any campaign you create will be automatically available when you install the Exitget installation code on your website. If you’re looking for more control, the web location filters allows you to drill down where you would like it to be available from in a few different ways.

Root Location

Whatever URL you’re at on your website, the root location specifies what the URL should start with for the campaign to be available.

For example if we specify the URL //mysite.com/sales/ any URL under this url will also be acceptable.

Such as:

  • //mysite.com/sales/item/131231
  • //mysite.com/sales/?item=1323
  • //mysite.com/sales/#3k424ji34
  • //mysite.com/sales/

Examples of URLs that this example wouldn’t be available from:

  • //mysite.com/sales
  • //mysite.com/about
  • //anothersite.com/sales

Exact Location

Choose any specific location that you want to make this campaign available from. For example if you only want this campaign to load from the homepage of a website. You could enter the domain as follows:

  • https://mysite.com
  • http://mysite.com
  • Or simply just: //mysite.com

The double slash in the begging makes it so it could be HTTP or HTTPS but besides that no other URI will load this campaign unless specified.

Note: If you also use the www in front of your domain you may also want to include both.

  • //mysite.com
  • //www.mysite.com

URI Exclusions

In an attempt to make it as easy as possible for you to control where your popups are displayed on your website the Root location filter allows you to set down very generalized rules about where your popup should load. This leaves some exceptions that may need to be accounted for.

For example, if you want the popup to be available from any section of your site except the contact section of your site. You could simply leave all the filters blank except add a single exclusion for with the keyword "contact" and no URL with this word in it will load this campaign.

URI Exceptions

We know user interfaces and navigation can be a bit complicated at times and because of this we have added a third layer to your filtering possibilities. In this layer you can override the previous with exceptions that may exists.

For example, lets imagine a situation where for example we wanted to exclude a specific product from your catalog. We can enter the product=123 into the exclusions list but your site has a pretty cool feature that lets us search for similar products to this one. In this case the product=123 is still in the URL but so another parameter called search=related. This is the exception we might want to isolate if we want the campaign to load from this search page. We can do this by entering the search=related parameter into the exceptions list.
