How to Add Popups in Divi (6 Options)

What is the first thing that comes to mind when we mention a popup? Annoying, too frequent? If that’s the case, think again.

Popups exist for a reason, and the concept of a popup has changed how businesses sell and generate leads significantly in the past decade.

Think about the conversions you can achieve with the right popup for your Divi website.

For that purpose, there are many options available to add popups in Divi that you can choose from, and in this article, we will show you the five best alternatives.

1. Use Popups for Divi

Let’s create popups in Divi with our very own Popups for Divi, installed on over 80,000 websites, and counting!  

If you have not used Popups for Divi before, you will have to install and activate our plugin.

Go to your wp-admin and open the ‘Add Plugin’ page. Next, search for ‘Popups for Divi’, then install and activate the plugin afterwards.

After you activate the plugin, go to your dedicated page with the front-end builder, and in the desired section where you want to insert the popup, open the “Popup” tab, enable the “This is a Popup” flag, and enter the desired value (ID) of the popup, for instance, “contact”, and save.

Now, you will need to create a button that will make the popup visible. On your Visual Builder, go to the top and click on the “Contact” button settings, where you will set your custom link.

Keep in mind that any button or link that points to your custom Popup ID is your Popup trigger, which means that clicking that button makes that popup visible (aka triggering the popup).

And voilà, now you have your first popup created with our Popups for Divi plugin! For more quick steps on how to create your first popup with Popups for Divi, please view our video tutorial:

3. Use Bloom

Another excellent alternative for adding popups to your Divi website is using Bloom by Elegant Themes, one of the best email opt-in plugins available on the market.

Bloom allows you to create automatic opt-in popups triggered by timed delays, when users reach the bottom of the page, after comment, or even after a purchase. It is a genuinely effective plugin for generating and converting leads.

Bloom’s popup opt-in displays a lightbox pop-up on your website that people can use to subscribe to your email list. As with the options mentioned above, you can place a popup anywhere on your website and set the popup to be triggered based on unique user interactions.
