How to Set Overlay for a Specific Page


Picreel provides you with the functionality of setting pop-up overlays for a page of your choice.


By setting overlays for a specific page, you can:


1. Promote exclusive offers related to the contents of that page

2. Analyze the traffic on that page due to pop-up overlays


Here’s an example of how an overlay on a specific page can help you boost sales.

To set overlay for a specific page of your website:


Step 1: In your Picreel account,

  • Navigate to ‘Campaigns’ from the dashboard.


Navigating to Campaigns


  • Move your cursor to the campaign you wish to edit and click on ‘Settings.


Going to Campaign Settings


Step 2: On the campaign settings page,

  • Choose where to display the overlay under ‘Basic Settings

  • You can choose to apply a campaign for the whole site or some pages by picking the right combination. Mention the word relating to a page where you wish to show/hide the pop-up.

  • Click ‘Save’ to finalize your changes.


Setting the Conditions for Variables to Show/Hide Overlays


- If "Contains" is chosen, you can insert any part of a URL(s), like blog or product.

For example, if you put "blog" in the field, the overlay fires on and other links that have "blog" in it.


- If "Does not contain" is chosen, you can insert any part of a URL(s) as well. It will exclude these URLs from the campaign.


- If "Equals" is chosen, you need to identify the entire URL(s) where you wish to display the campaign. It can trigger the overlay on a specific link with the slash (/) at the end.

For example, you can insert in the field.


- If "Does not equal" is chosen, you need to identify the entire URL(s) where you do not wish to display the campaign.


The following example may help you better understand when you want to set an overlay for a specific page:


Activate the campaign on a specific page(s) by clicking the ‘Add URL’ button. In the dropdown menu, you may choose where to show or hide your campaign.


For example, your website address is "” You want to show your pop-up only to blog readers at "" and don’t want to show it on specific blog articles -- ",".


Here’s what the configuration should look like:
