Support » Plugin: Cherry PopUps » latest update has messed everything up

  • I’ve just installed the update and its broken my install of Cherry Pop Ups.

    1. It’s broken my custom css – have you changed the structure?
    2. Shortcodes aren’t being processed so my custom subscribe form is just showing the
    3. The original subscribe form is now showing again
    4. Every click on the page is bringing the pop up again – if you dismiss it and then click on anywhere on the page it is showing the popup again, you cannot click on any links or just normal non-clickable areas of the site without the pop up intercepting it and showing the pop up again. Site is unusable until you tick don’t show this again.

    Thank you for releasing this plugin for free but please can you at least provide a change doc when you are doing breaking changes? I’ve got to basically reimplement this now and have no clear starting point.

  • SHORTCODE ISSUE

    It looks like you have removed a line.

    In \cherry-popups\includes\public\class-popups-template-callbacks.php at line 140 this line of code has been removed:

    $content = apply_filters( 'the_content', $content );

    Which breaks any templates that use shortcodes. Can this be added back in please?

    BROKEN CSS

    It looks like you have changed the popup title from h3 to h4.

    SUBSCRIBER FORM

    I’ve fixed this by re-selecting the “Popup Content Type” to “Simple(Title + Content)”.

    I can see there are some extra .tmpl files and I suspect you have somehow changed the value of this option so it will have reset it for everyone to the default template with this update.

    CLICK HIJACK

    This looks like a new feature you have implemented, “Custom opening event” (btw you have typo in the ui its accidentally written as “openning”).

    I have put the selector to #dontexist21564654 and now the website is useable again but this hasn’t solved the problem because the “Don’t show this again” checkbox in the popup disappears then which means visitors cannot stop the popup showing every time the page loads.

    As a temporary solution to get the site working again I’ve had to set the “Show once” setting to “enable”. This stops from annoying the visitor every page load but I actually want to annoy them a little bit. I want to keep asking them until they say don’t show this again. The first visit they might not realise the value in joining so I like to ask a few times before they either join or opt-out.
