I'm looking at using the pop over plug-in but need to know if it will accommodate specific need

Please respond to each with specific directions of where I go to set the plugin up to do each of the following.

1. Can I use a graphical background instead of a solid color? If so, where do I do this?

2. The graphic you use on the plugin page to promote this item shows a pop up with a field to submit an email address. Can it do so as the picture implies I do not see any place where I enter form data such as this. Please tell me how to do so.

3. I want the pop up to always be immediately present for all visitors on all pages of my site. Can it do this? If so, where and what are the settings? (basically, I want it to be as if it were just an always present container and the only reason to make it a "pop up" is that later on, I may not want it always present.)

4. Can I give the pop up rounded corners? If so, where? Can I control the radius?

Thank you for your help.

    Hi Earl,

    Thank you for your question.

    1. Can I use a graphical background instead of a solid color? If so, where do I do this?

    There isn't any built in functionality to do this but you can achieve it by using "Dark Background Fixed" Pop Over Style in the Edit Pop Over page and adding following CSS code in the stylesheet file of your child theme or adding it using any of the following plugin.

    #darkbackground{
    background: url('path to the image file');
    }

    2. The graphic you use on the plugin page to promote this item shows a pop up with a field to submit an email address. Can it do so as the picture implies I do not see any place where I enter form data such as this. Please tell me how to do so.

    Just enter the markup of the form in Popover content which you want to display in pop up from Edit Pop Over page. The plugin doesn't add any form like this itself.

    3. I want the pop up to always be immediately present for all visitors on all pages of my site. Can it do this?

    Yes you can do this, just select "immediately" for the Show Pop Over field in "Pop over appearance delays" section from Edit Pop Over page and don't use any Pop Over condition.

    4. Can I give the pop up rounded corners? If so, where? Can I control the radius?

    You can make the popup corners rounded adding following CSS code in your site the same way mentioned previously.

    .visiblebox{
    border-radius: 10px;
    }
