    I had the same issue tonight when installing. It seems the latest version works, but is only available on the author's site.

    Hi Steve,

    Just to let you know I'll be adding the OptinPop upgrade to version 4.0 to the WordPress plugin repository over the next week. All installation issues from that source will be fixed.

    When you get the upgrade from here: http://bigsellingoptins.com/optinpop/

    ...everything will install without any issues.

    Many thanks!
    Brian

    Great to hear, Brian! Will future versions be updated in the plugin repository more quickly? Or should we check the website periodically for updates?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hi Steve

    I'm aiming to get things set up so you'll be told of updates to the free version from within the WordPress Dashboard as soon as they're in the repository.

    If you're on my mailing list I'll also let you know via email of updates to both the free and advanced versions of OptinPop.

    You can join the updates list here...
    http://bigsellingoptins.com/bigselling-insiders/

    When you subscribe I'll also send you videos that show you useful strategies for getting the most out of OptinPop and OptinPop Advanced.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Brian, even the new version is not working for me.

    I am trying to use with feedburner on my Google Tricks Blog

    The firebug console says - Error in parsing value for 'filter'. Declaration dropped.

    Hi abhis2.0 - Are you using the most recent version of WordPress? It's critical that you're using version 3.0+

    Because OptinPop uses the jQuery Library it's very sensitive to other plugins and themes that use it in an incorrect way or aren't coded that well.

    Also OptinPop places it's code within the footer section of a blog so if a theme doesn't load this section the popup won't load.

    Some themes don't load the footer section amazingly enough so no footer actions are triggered.

    I have a 7 point troubleshooting guide here that might help you...

    First of all, thanks for the quick response Brian.

    I am using latest version of wordpress and optinpop. the js and css are loading.

    It looks like jquery call jQuery.fancybox is not working.
    IE says the this method is not supported.

    What should I do?

    Hi abhis2.0 - I.E. 7 is one of the buggiest most least secure browsers ever created so I'm not surprised it's not working.

    All I can suggest is try using a newer browser.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Already posted on the optinpop website, base fact, the new wordpress version does NOT seem to work in Chrome. If I use the version 4.0 from their website, all works just fine. Also of note, when deactivating the plugin, deleting the files, and reverting versions, something is left behind and NOT cleared from the database as after reverting then reactivating, OLD settings show in the new activated files admin area. I suspect name changes between the original optinpop and their new optinpop-yadda-yadda-yadda file structure might also be a part of the solution, I could be wrong on the later, but the previous about things left behind I'm certain because I witnessed that with the process.

    Also, good luck with the popup templates it talks about in the admin panel for registering, I registered and have yet to see anything. It also makes it look like you have to register to use it, but looking at their site later you find out that was only an option. Nice to know it's an option and not required after the fact.

    Yes, the 4.1 that wordpress wants us to update to in the control panel if we do a manual install from your main site, it's not working in chrome. If I install files from your main site, 4.0, it works. If I then update through admin in wordpress, it no longer works. If I deactivate and delete the files in admin, then upload the 4.0 files, it works, but still retains the settings from the previous install. I think this might be part of your problem. Not everything removes when deactivating and deleting files through admin.

    And thanks brian for the plugin and replies. Now if I could only get it to work with g-lock opt in email plugin, it'd be great, but the author gives no way to point to the trigger on g-lock so I had to do a workaround for now. g-lock is all javascript.

    I'm very glad to hear you have it working now.

    We'll see if it's possible to remove all settings when uninstalling the plugin in the next version of the plugin.

    So far this is the only issue I've heard of where it would be helpful.

    If there's anything else you need please just let me know.

    All the best!

    Yeop, working, but not with the present files available in the wordpress update. Would be nice if THOSE files worked so I don't have the plugin upgrade notice glaring at me in the admin area =)

    Hi D

    The problem with the plugin not working from WordPress.org has now been fixed.

    Everything should be working fine.

    Just remove the plugin you're using right now and re-install from the one you can download from here.

    If you run up against any problems here's a 7 part troubleshooting guide you might find useful...

    http://bigsellingoptins.com/optinpop-trouble-shooting-guide/

    Some issues are due to clashes with other plugins using jQuery.

    All the best!

    Hi Piotr - thanks for your message about OptinPop not working. What was the problem exactly? unfortunately you didn't say.

    There are known issue of compatibility problems with poorly coded plugins and themes that use the JQuery library as I've mentioned before.

    If you've got a free plugin or theme that's uses JQuery is still in beta or a very low version number it's likely that's the cause.

    Our code has been extensively tested and complies fully with WordPress standards.

    All the best!

    Brian
