WP Expander plugin is designed to grab your visitors attention when they arrive on your blog.
It’s a direct replacement for the default WordPress text widget, but includes one very special addition.
It allows you to specify a time in seconds before the text widget reveals itself by unfolding in your sidebar. It uses jquery, and the effect is very cool and will certainly get your visitors attention.
For example, you could use it as your subscriber sign-up box by posting your autoresponder code into the box. Then set the delay to 7 seconds which we think is the ideal time – you’ll have to experiment to find what works best for your blog.
So the page loads, then after 7 seconds your sign up box appears pulling your visitors eyes to your offer to get them to sign up.
Here’s some of the cool features:
- You can even do clever stuff like stacking the text widgets on top of each other and revealing a new line of text every specific time (in second), just like it shows on the demo blog.
- You can even put the banner (suggested 125×125 in size) and you can also put your opt in form there too…. you can see it in the demo blog after 20 seconds.
- All you have to do is to enter the Title and then in the content box, input HTML code to the message you want it to appear.
- This plugin is not intrusive at all and it will grab your visitors attention to the new message that show up.
