Popup is not showing, why ?

Check your page source code. At the bottom of your page search for an html comment that looks something like :

<!-- Popups v1.1 - https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-popup/-->

If you see that comment, then the error is probably a javascript error. Check your browser console for problems.

If you are not seeing that code instead, the problem is that one of the display rules you configured is preventing it to show. Double check your display rules.

If you have cache be sure to enable AJAX mode in the plugin settings page
