Permission based exit surveys - how to?
I'm looking to poll people leaving my WP blog about why they came, if the found what they came for, and what i can improve. This can be done with the onunload function, as I understand it.
- I want to ask for permission to survey them at the end of their visit, and ask for this permission right at the start.
- To do that, I want to use the 'background goes dark and sexy popup appears' function a la http://searchmarketingexpo.com/west/...l_agenda.shtml (click a speaker's name to see what i mean ... "onclick="return GB_showPage('Danny Sullivan', this.href")
- Also, I'm concerned that the onunload method will popup a survey every time someone visits then leaves; this would annoy visitors and I'd prefer to only do it, say, the first and second times they come, then randomly after that. This concern is largely because I can't see how to implement this on my Wordpress blog short of putting the onunload code into the index template will generate popups whenever they change pages, yet remain in my site!
I've seen http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/show...ht=exit+survey
but it's not an answer to my q.
How can I do permission based exit surveys for my blog, please?

There are a couple of different things involved here so we'll go through them one at a time.

The fact it is in WordPress shouldn't matter. You'll just have to figure out your way through the template to insert your code as needed.
