FAQ

How are the settings saved?

All settings are saved in one field in the option table.

Can I get more styling options in the future?

Probably not so much. I actually removed som options to make it smaller and easier to use. Use “Custom style” or disable CSS and set the style in your own theme files instead.

What is the EU cookie law

You need to inform every user that you are using cookies on your site. Google Analytics is probably the most used script that use cookies.

The plugin does not work. What should I do?

Look for javascript errors. Be sure there is not a localstorage variable set. If you clicked the button the message will not come back.

How can I delete the localstorage variable?

In wp-admin set the “Logged in” to “Enable” and reload the site. It will then delete the localstorage variable on every pageload if it exists.
