Take these steps to check:
- Set the “Display a X close button on the top right corner” and “Display a “Don’t show out again” checkbox” settings to NO.
- Check the “Display on” and “Order states” settings.
No, you just need to set those options to NO, refresh front page, you would find that popups show out again, the last step is to set those options back to what they were.
One name per line, separate first name and last name with a comma(,) like Barbara, Thomas. You can find a lot online tools to generate names, I found this one is good, it can generate names by countries and languages.
One address per line, separate city, state and country with commas like Graysville, Alabama, United States. There are also a lot of online tools to generate addresses. If you don’t need city, then Alabama, United States is enough. If you don’t need city and state, then one county name per line.
Just set a very large value like 1000 to the “How many popups per page” setting.
