i am getting disappointed by reading post here for max there are reply like topic was moved.

and for some if there are replies they are not useful.

very few threads are useful which is making my opinion towards oxwall as stated below.

Oxwall have good base script.

there is no developer for modification.

no help to anyone for there doubts as there is no competent developer here.

final conclusion.

even though its initial impression is great, when you try to make it colorful / customising to your needs there is nothing more crappy / bad / worst script than oxwall.

i m giving up after almost a month of search in all thread for all kind of help,
the store is full of crappy plugin, there developer only make money and wont provide support.

its fully a crappy thing which i came to understand after doing full study for the whole month.

Oxwall is badest software which i ever installed due to no support plugins blah blah blah things to make it beutiful.

good bye oxwall

Here we go! First you will have to modify the dashboard page by downloading and editing ow_system_plugins/base/controllers/component_panel.php from line 159.


//Add some Javascrtip for float box.

$script = "

$(document).ready(function(){
window.fooFloatBox = new OW_FloatBox({\$title:'Some Floatbox Title here', \$contents: 'Some contents here', width: '550px'});

});

";

OW::getDocument()->addOnloadScript($script);


Pay good attention to the bold areas.

Good you saw the funny part... Now, this will do the magic - hopefully!

$script = "

//Check if user has been here in the last 365 days

if(!isset($_COOKIE['visited_already'])){

setcookie('visited_already' , 'true' , time()+60*60*24*7*365);

//If not, popup some contents and mark this user as visited for the next 365 days.

$(document).ready(function(){

window.fooFloatBox = new OW_FloatBox({\$title:'Some Floatbox Title here', \$contents: 'Some contents here', width: '550px'});

});

}";

OW::getDocument()->addOnloadScript($script);


As usual, pay attention to the bold areas.

Instead of customizing core files, you could use a third party float box. All you need to do is add a line of javascript via admin console page settings: Custom tail code.


I tried a few of those and HelloBar worked best for me. P.s. it does once per session pop-ups among a few other things.
