Why is the Preview Not Accurate in PopupAlly Pro

You’ve configured your opt in style settings, but the PopupAlly preview is not accurate and doesn’t match what you see on the actual page.

What Causes The Inaccurate PopupAlly Preview?

This is most commonly caused by the WordPress theme using the important modifier in the code. The theme code will override your PopupAlly settings which will result in seeing a different preview vs. what you see on the actual page.

How To Fix The Preview

In most cases, you’ll find the fix to the issue in the advanced style settings.

Step 1: Adjust the advanced style settings

Go to: PopupAlly > Select the popup > Style Settings > Advanced Settings.

Make sure that the box is checked for: “Add “!important” modifier to popup styling“.

Then, save changes.
