Text Detect is a stack that can conditionally display additional content on a web page, based on the words or phrases that a user type into fields. You could provide targeted information for sales, support, or even provide additional fields or links to select users.
Let's take the example of a sales site and the simple question "Which product are you interested in?"
The answer is predictable. Logically, the user wishes to know more about one of the products mentioned on the current page. With Text Detect, you can add an HTML text area to your page for the customers reply, then add Text Detect Pop-ups with the relevant information.
The information may be presented in one of five different ways for each Text Detect stack on your page. Inline (as above), Chat Bubble, Lightbox, Fixed Top or Fixed Bottom
The Text Detect Pop-ups can be set up to detect entries from a list of words and or phrases. The query can be formatted as case sensitive (or not) and partial word matches can be activated. In the example above, if I'd typed in "I'm interested in PlusKit" a different Inline window would have opened in place of the Stacks info simply because 'plus kit' was entered as one of the terms to be detected.
Text Detect is an interesting addition to the RW Stacks collection. It will save you time by identifying common enquiries beforehand and supplying predefined answers. You can add most 3rd-party stacks to the pop-up content and place Text Detect inside a 3rd party form to add custom messages.
