First notification (in seconds, minimum 5 seconds) – we found that some visitors exit a website within 10 seconds or less which is also known as bounce rate. We decided to have a setting to quickly display the message after 5 seconds (minimum) to try to keep the visitor on the website by displaying the notification box with what someone else has viewed, or purchased.
Interval (in seconds, minimum 20 seconds) – this is the period of time when the next notification box will be displayed. The content in the notification box will be displayed based on the log i.e will be displayed from the latest view or click to the oldest.
Text Notification View – this is the message displayed when a visitors views a page, post or product
Text Notification Purchase – this is the message displayed when a visitor clicks on the Buy or Add to Cart button for a product
Show Notification from _ Days Ago – displays a log of all the pages and posts viewed and products purchased viewed. Try to keep this to a minimum to avoid having large logs.
Display Notification – you have the option to display the Notification Box on the bottom left hand side or the right. You choose.
Duration Notification – this is how long the Notification Box is being displayed before it disappears. The minimum amount of time to display is 4 seconds + the time interval you set. To make it more noticeable we recommend you display this for longer.
Currently, there are 5 types of views.
Show Notification Custom Post Type – if your WordPress site uses custom post types you will now be able to display messages based on different custom post types rather one specifically for Posts.
Display Notification Box on the entire website – by default the Notification Box will be displayed across the entire website

You have the option to select Home Page, Posts (select which particular posts), Pages (select which particular Pages), Product Pages (WooCommerce), Buddy Press pages and Custom Post Types (list will depend on which plugins are installed)

The custom notification feature is the most powerful feature we built in the WordPress plugin. We decided to include this feature to give you the website owner the flexibility to add your own custom message or marketing material. You can even display videos, signup forms and the possibilities are endless. You can pretty much use shortcodes to display anything you want.

Time interval – the time interval is the period of time when the next notification notification box will be displayed. The minimum setting is 20 seconds.
Duration Notification – this is how long the Custom Notification Box is being displayed before it disappears. The minimum amount of time to display is 4 seconds + the time interval you set. To make it more noticeable we recommend you display this for longer.
Custom Notification Text – here you can add text, images, videos or shortcodes. It’s basically like creating a new post but it will be displayed in the Custom Notification box. As per the example, you can use shortcode to display anything you want.

Once installed, the extensions will be displayed underneath the Settings Menu.
