  1. Hi!)
    This is a good collection of plugins, thanks!) I have tried many different popup plugins, but now stopped on Popup by Supsystic. It has advantages such as simplicity in use, set of ready popups templates for different purposes, support of animations and layout on page, flexibility of customize design of popup elements, ability to track statistics of subscriptions through email and social networks, A / B testing and build-in code editor. But this is not all of its features! I leave link below, may it will be useful for someone)

    1. Hi john,

      Thanks for stopping by, There are lot of more resourceful pages on this website and if you have any question regarding blogging feel free to contact us and we will try to solve it

  2. Among the list I like Icegram as it’s simply beautiful. But most of the features are only available for pro version (paid). One more issue I found that it often freezes my WP dashboard!
