How To Pause or Disable a Popup

By default, all new popups are set to an initial publication status of ‘Draft’. When a popup is saved for the first time, the status is changed to ‘Published’. To deactivate a popup, change it's publication status from 'Published' to either 'Pending Review' or 'Draft'. 

When a popup status is no long set to ‘Published’, the class attributes added by the plugin ( 'popmake-{integer}', and 'popmake-{slug-name}' ) are removed from the popup. The popup cannot be activated nor triggered on the front end until it's status is changed back to ‘Published’ and the popup is updated.
