WordPress Popup Plugin Acquired by Link Software LLC

Last Updated October 29th, 2020

Link Software LLC has taken over ownership and development responsibilities of the popular WordPress popup plugin WP Terms Popup.

WP Terms Popup presents site visitors with a popup that requires action before allowing users to proceed to the site. Clicking the acceptance button removes the popup and loads the site. Pressing the refusal button sends the user to an alternative URL.

The plugin’s most common use is for showing and getting acceptance to a terms of service, hence the plugin’s name. It’s also popular for showing privacy policies, age verification requests, welcome messages, and more.

The plugin supports multiple popups. You can have one for the front page of your site and another for interior pages. The content of the popups is created and edited through a custom post type. It is as easy to manage as any blog post or page inside the WordPress admin. The call to action buttons and redirection URLs can be set on a per-popup basis or for all popups across the site.

Immediate Changes

The first big change for the plugin comes with a total redesign of its logo and marketing site at termsplugin.com. The new site (shown below on the left, with the old design on the right) comes with an updated look and fresh content. There is an improved buying process for the plugin add-ons as well. Checkout now offers the acceptance of credit cards for payment instead of just PayPal.

An update for the plugin, version 1.2.1, has been released with improved popup displays on mobile devices. The new release also has support for sites that are using page building plugins to manage their content.

Coming Soon

The base plugin will remain free and there are many improvements already planned for future releases. Many of these early changes will be focused on improving the plugin’s interface and usability.

Closing Thoughts
