Portlet with call to action
This shows a call to action: an overlay with an image, titel rich text. This calls the attention of a visitor to take action, usually to click a link or button.
A call to action portlet. This is basically a copy of the static text portlet with a few extra options.
In the portlet you can set the number of milliseconds before the overlay is shown.
When the overlay is shown, a cookie is set. We use this to show the overlay only once. The cookie is specific for this portlet: a new call to action portlet will be shown once too.
When you edit the portlet, you can use a checkbox to say that this is not a minor edit, but a new version. The previous cookie is then not valid anymore and the visitor will again see the overlay once.
The portlet itself is never shown. Instead a viewlet looks for portlets and shows the contents after a pause. This avoids a portlet column taking up space but not showing anything when there are no other portlets.
You can create multiple portlets if you really want to, but only one overlay is shown on a page. If there are three portlets, and the user has already seen the first one but not the others, then the second one will be shown.
