I run a blog and I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers now using modal popups to get people to subscribe. The consensus is that these popups work really well to get people to subscribe, but also that people HATE them.
So I developed a solution that’s less obtrusive, that displays a form to subscribe at the bottom of the page, only when a reader has scrolled to the comments section of the blog.
I want to test that it works across browsers. I think it does, but there’s nothing like testing in the wild to be sure…
Here’s a link to an article. If you scroll down to the end, you should see a very obvious popup at the bottom of the screen.
Possibly to rename the name attributes on the form so that they use more obscure names. That way things like LastPass or Google Form Fill, or Yahoo Auto Form Filler or whichever other ones are out there won’t automatically recognise the names.
