How to hide Slide in once seen or if already subscribed?

I've been playing with the Slide In plugin on our test install before launching on our live site and have a couple questions...

We've been using the Pop Up plugin, and intend to keep doing so for another purpose, but I want to start using Slide In primarily for it's MailChimp subscription functionality.

Once subscribed, however, the user will still be presented with the Slide In the next time they visit. Kinda annoying...

Pop Up has the option to hide a popup once it has been seen x number of times. I see no such variable in the Slide In settings.

Slide Ins also have a "close" button, but there is no "dismiss" link like in Pop Ups that will permanently hide the message from appearing again.

So... Is there currently any way to hide a MailChimp Subscribe Slide In from appearing again once the user is subscribed? Or, is there any way to only show a slide in x times? if not, please consider these feature requests.

Finally (sorry to change topics), MailChimp list subscription forms capture First and Last Name but these fields are not collected via the Slide in form. If there is no way to currently do this, please consider it another feature request.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    Hi @jcjnr,

    I'm afraid there isn't currently a way to hide the slide in for users already subscribed to your MailChimp list, and you are right that the plugin doesn't not currently request a first and last name, which might be handy for non-site members.

    I will definitely flag these as feature requests.

    Thanks Elliot!

    Any suggestions for hiding a Slide In once a user has seen it x times, like Pop Up?

    This plugin is pretty slick, but there are no variables for NOT showing it, and without a dismiss link that could get rather annoying when displayed on a popular page.

    Hi Elliot,

    I second this request from @jcjnr, especially MailChimp's First and Last Name fields, that is a pretty basic requirement for MailChimp integration.

    Also removing the 'Slide In' for subscribed users would be amazing.

    Other than that, very nice plugin, congrats.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
