In order to start using the Feature Box, you have to:
Create Your First Template
The first step to use Plugmatter Feature Box is to create your Feature Box template.
Naming Your Template
Give your template a name. You can keep any name based on your preference. As an example, we'll go for "eBook Download" as the template name where we'll offer an eBook to download to our subscribers.
(Hint: It can be your project name or any word that you want to use to remember this template. Example: eBook Offerings, Report Download or even My Favorite Template)
Base Template Selection
Base Template: The Base Templates are the editable templates provided by us. You can modify a base template and make the necessary design/content changes according to your preference.
Note: For this User Guide, we're choosing "Elegance" Template.
The above image shows how exactly you can modify your selected template according to your choice (based on your WordPress theme color, your choice, your audience's preference etc.). In the template, you can change the following according to your needs:
Description / bullet points
Template background color
Select and enter information about the mailing list provider
Text, fonts, font size on the template
The "Subscribe" button text and color
Once you're done with the changes, "Hit Save"
Your Own Template Creation
Path: Dashboard → Pages → Add New
Creating Your Custom Designed Template
This page will act as your Feature Box Template. You can go to this page's "HTML or Text" section and enter the code of your custom designed Feature Box template.
After we are onto the "Add New Page" we first clicked on the text above the content box, then entered the page title as "Custom Feature Box Template." After this, we copied the entire Custom Feature Box code in the content box and Hit Publish.
This shall create your custom feature box.
Tracking Your Custom Feature Box
In order to track the traffic, email sign-ups of your custom designed Feature Box, you add this code the "pm_form_track" class to your
<form> tag of the Feature Box Code while publishing.

Naming Your Custom Template
Then, Base Template → Your Custom Design → Page (that you just created) and Hit "Save Template".

The Plugmatter Feature Box allows you to turn it off for visitors who have already subscribed to your mailing list.
Target Different Sections
This feature allows you to select different sections of your blog/website with different feature box templates or even disable it.
Select the template that you want for the respective pages.
Note: You can also choose to display your preferred templates where ever you like on your website. In the above example, I chose to display my "eBook Download" Template only on the Homepage & Blog posts. For Pages and Archive, I chose to Disable it.
Target Returning Visitors
The returning visitors feature at Plugmatter is a unique feature that gives you total control over your returning visitors. After a set number of visits by a particular user you can choose to display a different feature box or even hide/disable the feature box completely for him.
For split-testing feature, you need to first enable the split-testing feature.
Important Note: Enabling this feature will supersede your General Settings meaning, all you General Settings will be ignored until the A/B testing is active.
