Third Party Integration
Managing your own email delivery system is very demanding – there are many protocols to manage to ensure a high delivery rate. For most businesses, it doesn’t make sense to pour their internal resources into such a project.
That’s why there are so many successful third party email delivery services.
But with so many services, it can be difficult to integrate a tool with the service you use. Content Locker Pro has you covered. Out of the box, it integrates with all the popular services – and many of the lesser known ones.
And as the code is easy to extend, you can rapidly integrate it with your own custom system.

Load Content Via Ajax
Ajax allows you to load parts of your page on demand – when the reader is ready to receive them. This reduces network traffic and provides a smooth experience for your users.
Choose Language For Buttons
It always irks me when I see plugins that only work in English. Yes, the English speaking population is large. But the Internet is global in scope, and your readers come from all over the globe.
Content Reader Plus makes it easy to customize the language of the buttons to match the language of your site and audience.
Lazy loading provides another method of increasing performance while reducing loading times. It’s a best practice in the world of high-performance software, and Content Locker Pro supports it out of the box.
Show Terms and Policies
To get your readers to hand over their personal details, you have to establish trust. Displaying your terms and conditions is a big step in that direction, which is why Content Locker Pro supports it out of the box.
Option To Hide Logged In Users
Some users care deeply about their privacy, and they don’t want other readers to know they are logged on to your site. By providing them with this option, you can increase engagement. Content Locker Pro has this feature built in.
Option to Disable on Mobile
If you don’t want to use Content Locker Pro with mobile visitors, you don’t have to. We give you complete flexibility in how you use our tool. So we’ve built this option into the plugin.
Option to Show Close Icon
You can decide whether the call to action remains on the screen, or whether the reader can dismiss it by clicking the close button.
Vertical Button Layout
You can choose a vertical layout for your social buttons if you prefer. We have thoroughly tested the layout, and it works great on mobile devices!
Transparent or Blurred Content
One tactic that works well is to blur the locked content, so the reader gets a sense of what he or she is missing. It’s very tantalizing when the content is just out of reach!
Content Locker Pro makes it very simple to do this, and it’s worth testing to see if it increases your engagement.
Lock After x Seconds
Time pressure is a well-proven conversion tactic. Content Locker Pro allows you to use this tactic by locking your content after a few seconds – to unlock it, your reader will have to share or opt in!
Relock After X Seconds
We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure sneaky readers cannot get around your content locker. Relocking the content will prompt a sneaky reader to cooperate, sharing or opting in.
Automatic Unlock After X Seconds
If you feel that locking your content is too harsh, you can give your reader the option to wait. After a specified period (that you control) the content will automatically unlock.
