Using Different Versions of the Same Form on Desktop and Mobile

By using the Thrive Leads plugin for WordPress, you can display an Opt-in form only for desktop interfaces and another one only for mobile interfaces on the SAME page.

This was initially a safety measure, for the Google announcement, which stated that the use of overlays (including Opt-in forms) will no longer be deemed “mobile-friendly”.

If you’re not that familiar with the Thrive Leads plugin, check out the entire Knowledge Base section for the plugin.
