Hi

Just wanted to say I love the optin footer its fab.

I have been having trouble getting the footer to be viewd in windows explorer was wondering if anyone can help with that.

Thank you

Kind regards
Jayne

Daniel October 11, 2010 at 12:58 pm

Hi Jayne,

You have an error in some other javascript (looks like ezs3) and that delays the optincrusher in internet explorer. Aside from that I can view it fine in IE. Hope this helps.

Hi Daniel,
Nice looking plugin. Have installed it, but cannot get it to work. No errors. Everything looks fine. Just not showing up. Looking for an on/off switch or something silly I am overlooking :-) Watching your videos it seems like it should just appear, but doesn’t seem to on my site. Any thoughts?
Thanks for your help.

Your theme appears to have left out the call to wp_footer, which is the hook that includes the optincrusher in your page. You should be able to add that back in the theme using your theme editor.

Hi Daniel,
Did that and got it to work. Thanks. Seems to be okay on Firefox, but not IE8. Not showing up at all. Sorry to be a pain, but again, it looks like it should work, but isn’t.
Thanks,

I have had the same problem. Did check and the wp-footer is in the theme files. Did send a support ticket but ????

Would love to get this thing working.
Thanks

Daniel October 18, 2010 at 8:59 am

Hi Judy,

You should get a response to your ticket soon. I think in your case you actually have wp_footer in your theme twice. Removing one should take care of it.

My theme has the wp_footer hook and still I can’t get the Opt-in Crusher to work.

I’m not sure if it might be another conflict in the theme or a conflicting plugin.

Try changing the theme or disabling some other plugins to see if you can find the conflict.

hi there,

what a great plugin this is! i customized to use it on my website for the dutch market of teaching people to play piano. my question is the following: when the lightbox shows up, i can’t get the optin form to be aligned.

i use mailchimp and the non-format html code, i tried everything i could think of but the form still is not aligned. you can see it at http://pianolesonline.com

can you please help me with that? I would very much appreciate it!

Thanks again for this great plugin!

Any assistance is appreciated.

Reply

Daniel November 23, 2010 at 9:00 am

Mark,

optincrusher currently works only on wordpress sites (though there is a generic version coming). As far as WordPress Direct, I haven’t tried. Maybe I should try to contact Marty and get it on to his network. However, I think you can still install the plugin following the standard installation video on this page.

Reply

Myles December 8, 2010 at 8:16 am

Hey,

I just found out about optincrusher a couple weeks ago and installed it to test it out. It is super sweet. I run a hybrid site with static pages, and WordPress.

Thanks to your cool plugin and it’s ease of use I was able to set it up in WordPress then copy the codes to common includes on my main site and get the slide up running on both sites. Works great.

If you are working on a generic version for non WordPress sites, cool. Until then, I wrote a tutorial on how to get it on a non WordPress section of a site. You can read about it here:

Daniel December 14, 2010 at 7:23 am

Hi Anne,

It looks like you did everything right and the optincrusher appears. However, the display of the form isn’t quite right. Some how an unprocessed form seems to have made it in. http://screencast.com/t/KcKdnh22

Maybe you need to enable for admin users while you test it.

Reply

Myles December 14, 2010 at 10:02 am

Anne

You need to redo your optin form. If you click the Lightbox version you will see you have 2 forms. The standard one (with the dashed border, and your custom one on top of it. Because of your custom form, with a custom submit button, your slide up form is not displaying correct. All you see is the top of your custom button. Lose the Instant Access button as it does not work in that format.

Was having a strange issue with the plug-in in IE versions 6 and up. The opt-in crusher plugin had this inside the optincrusher_IEhack.css file:

#footer {
position: absolute;
z-index: 100;
overflow: hidden;
}

I changed it to:

#optincrusher #footer {
position: absolute;
z-index: 100;
overflow: hidden;
}

And all is good now. Just though I would pass this along incase others had a strange issue with their footer being in weird places when viewed in internet exploder.

To fix this you’ll need to go in and remove the onclick call to URLONCLICK mention. I’ll try to put together a better answer at some point to help others with this. The majority of folks won’t experience this problem.

You could use css editing tools in chrome or firefox to adjust the settings then carry those over to the main plugin css. I think recent versions of IE even have some tools available.

Any other suggestions?

You can remove that onClick from the element near the URLONCLICK. Other than that it all seems to be working very well.

Will that still give me the lightbox window when people click on the arrow? I’ll test it in Dreamweaver since I can undo the edit there.

And yes, other than this one last issue it appears to be working very well. I didn’t even have to customize the bar. What you see is straight out of the box sort of speak. Kudos. :D

hookedonweb_usa January 6, 2012 at 10:38 am

I have had it working on WP 3.2.1 multisite for almost a year. However, it does not work on 3.3 or 3.3.1 in multisite mode,

It really needs to be updated to work in the current version / with multisite. As WP changes so does the need to update your plugins.

Turn the project over to someone that has the time to upgrade it and put it on the WP site.

This is a great plug and works well but it will soon loose any value to Daniel if it becomes obsolete.

Question for you. I cant seem to turn off pages or posts?

For example… In the “Exclude post/page” box I have been putting…
http://www.website.com/about-me
“about-me”
“/about-me”

And then saving it.

It is not turning it off.

You’ll need to provide numbers there. When you go to edit a page you can look in the URL to see what the ID number is for that post/page. It’s that number you need to use to exclude.

Thanks for a great product! I’ve successfully installed it and it’s working great. The only issue I have is with the “subscribed visitor” cookie – it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. I’ve checked the thank you page, and I see this:

setCookie(‘oc_subscribed’, 1, ‘/’, 365);

So I assume a cookie is being set, but the Optincrusher still appears after I’ve loaded the page with the setCookie in it. Do you have any suggestions on troubleshooting this?

Thanks!

but on this page – http://www.lifecancerfree.com/jacquelyn-saves-lives on which is should also NOT appear, you can see the different result – it’s like it’s trying to load the css, but stops part way…

There is not any way to do that. You might want to look at a contact form like cforms and then you could just put a link in the optincrusher pointing to your contact us page.

In this case you can probably just make the submit button a regular input of type=submit rather than an image. That usually takes care of it.

I have been trying in and out, but i couldent get it working.

Even when you have permalinks set to use postname or some other combination, each post/page still has an ID. You can see it in the URL when you edit that page. You’ll need to type that number in.

Hi, Daniel. Hope you’re doing well today.

I’ve installed the optincrusher in my blog (localhost at the moment) and I’m using the Twenty Eleven Theme version 1.4 (WordPress 3.4.2).

The thing is: whenever I test the plugin the Lightbox will appear behind the picture of the theme unless you scroll down till it shows only the Lightbox. Something might be wrong, right?

This is the HTML code I got from IContact and put in my blog:

E-mail
Primeiro Nome

The other thing is: in order to motivate people to leave theis names and emails in optincrusher I’m offering a free ebook. Is it possible to insert the image of my ebook in the icon “Free Ebook’ ?

Thanks for your help and sorry for the mistakes in English :)

Thanks for the free gift Daniel. However for me the ‘name’ and ‘email’ address fields are not visible. Your help on this would be much appreciated.

Just an FYI to anyone else having trouble with the popup not showing: I tracked down the call to a bad FaceBook script in a sidebar widget. I used Chrome and showed the JavaScript console (Ctrl-shift-i then ‘console’) to track it down. No fault of OptinCrusher!

Oh, after typing that I see that Daniel already mentioned the JS console in Chrome.

I had to clear my WP Minify plugin cache as well to purge the bad script completely. Minify can complicate troubleshooting because it crunches all of the scripts together.

Thanks, Daniel, for the awesome plugin!

Hi Daniel…wow, when I saw SEOPressor by Daniel Tan using this plugin I said I gotta check this out. Will implement with one of my sites. Thanks.

Hi,

I excluded my home page in the settings, but the opt in is still showing,

What might be the problem?

Thank you

The only way to exclude the home page is to make the home page display a regular page and provide the ID for that page.

Hi Daniel – I just love the concept of your plug-in and really want to get it to work properly for me.

I’ve installed it as per instructions and integrated with AWeber. That part seems to be working fine. However, I have a couple of problems: First, on the pop up, I can’t change the size of the font. That’s not such a major problem I guess.
The bigger problem is the lightbox. It’s picking up the optin call to action copy,(and sizing and spacing it bizarrely,) as well as the optin lightbox message. How can I suppress the optin call to action from being shown on the lightbox? And/or change the spacing?

I’ve checked out some of your other subscribers sites and they work fine..So must be me, heh? But what???

Thanks Daniel

So sorry Daniel….. :(
But I can’t find your answer (or the original of my comment). Hate to be a pain, but can you just repeat it here for me please? Many thanks…

The plugin works great but here some issues.

We would like to use a single optin without redirecting our clients onto another page.
So after signup, we would like them to stay on the current page and prefer to have the bar retreat (if possible). Their bonus/free give away would be automatically sent out via email (after sign up).

This doesn’t seem possible with the generic set up.

What can we do?

Thanks for the answer

Chris, you may be able to create a form plus script that would accomplish this. That’s a bit outside the scope of the optincrusher since you can put any form you like in there.

NOt updating. I added the plugin and the optin form code. This worked. However, when I went back to change the ioptin code it did not change.

I also tried to change the “Appearance Settings” with my own thumbnail and a different background. It did not make the change.

The text for the lightbox message would not change either. I changed it and clicked save but it does not change.

I deleted the plugin and tried again but the original plugin was still there.

You need to add your HTML optin form.

I love this plugin. I’ve installed and created a custom icon. However I am having one issue that I can’t seem to figure out. I am using Mailchimp for email and the current version won’t allow first name and email for the short form. In the optin footer, the input box for email is too far right. Also, how do I format the text in the light box the words aren’t stacked. Thanks for your reply!

Daniel April 22, 2013 at 7:44 am

Sometimes you need to strip out extra CSS and style information. Take the raw html form and make sure it doesn’t try to do any formatting.

Karyn April 22, 2013 at 8:52 am

I am not a programmer. Kinda confused about the language you’re using. Where would I find the raw html form and how do I know if it’s trying to do any formatting?

Would you mind taking a look at the site and let me know what you think it may be formatting? http://www.SheKnowsBiz.com

Hi Daniel
Your Optincrusher Plugin look awesome, but I have downloaded the file and there is no .zip file.

Am I missing something?

Reply

Daniel July 22, 2013 at 10:29 pm

Hi Ash,

What did you download? There is only a zip file to download, if you’re following the instructions in the emails that you received.

Daniel,
Thanks for a great plugin and for great troubleshooting I was able to do by myself! Got the the second point and realized that the reason it looked like it wasn’t showing up was that I was logged into my account. Used a different browser and there it was!!
My clients are going to love coming here to get this!
Allison

What does it integrate with? Does it configure with feedburner?

Reply

Rashid Rupani October 22, 2013 at 6:39 am

Yes, It will work with feedburner…
Just go to Wp-admin > Settings > Optin Crusher and scroll down to “Option form details” section and insert your optin html code.

Reply

david October 22, 2013 at 7:12 am

Hi Daniel. I saw that it does configure with Feedburner and tried it out.

Do you have a footer form that is smaller and simpler like that here: http://ownermag.com/

Thanks.

I am using WP 3.9.1, and the optincrusher is working well.

Daniel,

I’ve used your optincrusher plugin before and I just reinstalled it again. I pasted the raw html code into the box but it only generated this: . When I go to the website, it doesn’t show Name or Email and it isn’t connected to Aweber. Any thoughts?

Sincerest Regards,
Benjamin Lee

I’m running it successfully on all my sites and they’re up to date with WP 3.3.1 You might have a theme issue or some other problem that’s easily resolved. Give it another try.

Reply

Kevin February 10, 2012 at 6:57 am

Nope, I upgraded to WP 3.3.1 and still no go. Have tried with 3 different themes – still no luck..

Daniel February 11, 2012 at 11:38 pm

This site is running WP 3.3.1 and the optincrusher is working fine. Maybe you could look at potential conflicts with other plugins?
