Announcing “Welcome Mat” Page Slide Effect for Fullscreen Optins

A lot of you have asked if it is possible to create a “Welcome Mat” effect with OptinMonster fullscreen campaigns? Today, we’re excited to announce that our new Page Slide effect is here!

Before now, fullscreen welcome gate campaigns were overlays and would appear on top of your content.

But with our new Page Slide effect, your fullscreen campaign will now slide in from the top of the page, instead of covering your content. This way your users can just scroll down to reach your content.

This Page Slide feature has been an extremely popular request, so we’re happy to roll it out for our users.

How to Add a Page Slide Effect to Fullscreen Optins

The first thing you will need to do is either create or edit a fullscreen optin. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to create a fullscreen optin.

By default, many of the fullscreen overlay designs are transparent. If you wish, you can turn the transparency off in the Optin menu. Just move the transparency slider in the Overlay Background Color field up to the top to remove any transparency.

Then, also within in the Optin panel, you’ll see the new Enable Page Slide setting. Just turn that option On to enable Page Slide for your fullscreen optin.

Fullscreen optins with the Page Slide effect are available for all Pro level customers. If you’re not on our Pro plan, then now’s the perfect time to upgrade your account.

We have so many more exciting new features in the works that we can’t wait to share. Until next time, give the Page Slide feature a try!

    Hey Syed, how does this work with Google’s new policies around fullscreen optins?

    1. Sharon Hurley Hall says:

      Hi Mike, we recently published a post about how OptinMonster works with Google’s new mobile popup rules that you might find helpful: The New Google Mobile Friendly Rules for Popups (and How They Affect OptinMonster).

      As long as your mobile visitors can get immediate access to the content they need, without being blocked by interstitials, it’s fine for you to use popups.

      Feel free to get in touch if you need any help. 🙂

    This is awesome! Been looking forward to this update for a long time. Thank you OptinMonster team.

    Now, time to get it set up and tested… 🙂

    1. Sharon Hurley Hall says:

    Awesome new feature! But doesn’t this affect with Google’s new update with regards to full screen pop ups and sliders?

    1. Sharon Hurley Hall says:

      Hi Emmerey, great question. 🙂 Since this new option slides out of the way of content, and can be configured to give readers the best experience, there’s no issue. Syed Balkhi discusses this in detail in an article on Google mobile-friendly rules – check it out! And please follow us on Twitter to get more free guides.

        Hi Sharon! Thanks a lot for the reply. I will definitely check that out! Will try to keep in touch on Twitter 🙂
