Support Policy

From February 2015, support will only be available via email from our email address .

Before you email us, please make sure you have browsed/searched through product forum for the answer to your question, and have read through the Support FAQs below:

Support FAQs

  • What kind of support is offered with a purchased product?
    Your product purchase includes one year of access to premium support via email and one year or free updates. Beyond that, you will need to renew your subscription year on year for around 30% of the product price. Support covers issues such as bug fixes (if any) under normal operation, how to use basic product features, very basic WordPress help, and help with very basic theme customisaton. If you need more advanced modifications please consider hiring a developer to do it for you.
  • Will you provide help with small modifications?
    If you need to do small modifications, you may get help from us as long as they are reasonable in number and nature. If you have a lot of such modifications, please consider paid developer help.
  • What kind of help would be unreasonable to ask?
    This is not an easy question to answer. We are here to ensure that the product you purchased works as intended by us and serves its purpose on your website. That means if it doesn’t work for you, we can step in and help you with it. However, it is when there are no issues with the functioning of the product and all you want is help with modification, that demands start getting unreasonable.
    As mentioned before, we don’t mind helping with modifications, but we also expect you to have tried everything to do it yourself. In other words, we expect you to have tried all the settings in your theme, ensured that the issue relates to the product in question, searched through legacy product support forum, and looked around on Google for the answer to your questions before approaching us. Please bear in mind that one theme, one child theme and a few plugins can get you only so far, and you will probably need to make changes to the code of your website to add functionality, change design and personalise it. In case of too many modifications, we will politely ask you to seek paid help.
  • I am using one of your child themes. I am having an issue with it.
    Please make sure the issue is really with the child theme by activating the parent theme and checking if the problem gets solved. Also please make sure you have tested all the settings in parent theme and child theme, sometimes the answer is right in there! Send us an email if the issue still persists.
  • I am using one of your child themes. I need help with customisation.
    As a pre-requisite, you are going to need a basic understanding of HTML & CSS to start customising the layout and style of your theme. To dig deeper PHP knowledge, specifically to WordPress, will help as well. The WordPress Codex is a great place to start learning. For CSS changes related to text colour, background colour, fonts, etc, please consider using the Firebug extension. A simple Google search returns many good text/video tutorials.
  • Do you offer paid WordPress development services?
    Yes we do depending on our work schedule. You can always run your requirements by us via email.

    Demo doesn’t work so before buying would like to know:

    Does it also display a pop-up for promotions – instead of a code showing up saying something on the top like “No coupon code required!” (this is what Retailmenot does).

      It does not affect the promotions. The description has the following note beneath:

            Hi

            Thank you, it works now. However, there is small (but annoying) delay before the pop up shows. Why it is so? How we configure to show pop up faster (without any delay)?

            Basically, it is trying to load the popup code via an AJAX script at the same time as the page assets like images, etc are loading which is causing the delay. Clipper renders the popup code via AJAX, so we have used their system instead of building a new function just to show popups.

        Firstly thanks for this plugin.

        Can we get it to work for promotions and just say “No coupon code required!”. I mean is that a quick fix we can do ?

        • kohlisj

          Got my answer from below. I am seeing a small time lag before the popup opens in the new page. is that something we can reduce. Or it is just waiting for the complete page to render.

  • bootmuah

    Is it easy to customize the code so that it pops up for promotions as well? (really need this functionality).

    • author
      mohsinoffline

      It is not a simple job. The online coupon popup script is built within Clipper, so there was no need to change it. For promotions, you will have to alter it, but also initiate the popup on the correct events (in this case, clicking a promotion button), which Clipper does not originally.

      Hi there,

      The plugin does not add any texts to the website. All the texts are from within the theme you use, i.e. Clipper and any child theme you may be using.

      Hi there,

      It seems the “copy” script in Clipper is not compatible with WordPress 4.x, so it’s probably not plugin related. I will report it to AppThemes support and see if they can reaffirm this.

      On further tests, the script works actually. There was some fault in my Clipper install, and I had to upload a fresh copy to fix it. Thanks for pointing it out!

    Hi,

    • author
      mohsinoffline

      Basically the popup mechanism of Clipper is built on AJAX, and since CouponJoy derives it from Clipper, it uses AJAX too. AJAX requests should be sent after all the DOM elements are loaded, so the delay is only slow or normal depending on the internet connection you are using.

    Hi Mohsin,

    It works only on the homepage.
    in the store page the focus doesn’t stay on my site, it goes to the affiliate links.

    try this page :

    When you click on “VOIR LE CODE”, the focus goes.

      Please try disabling “minify” for your HTML markup, which is causing to trigger a couple of JavaScript errors. Please let me know if that doesn’t work.

    Sorry, the correct page is :

    try this one that have coupon on it :

    In firebug I have this problem :

  • mouradbouikni

    Hello,

    I deactivated the plugin for minification but still the same thing.

    perhaps there is a minification by the server it self.

    I think the problem is with wp 4.2, because before this update it works fine.

    Hello,
    The plugin is nice but there is two problem

    The delay opening popup : For a good user experience it will be nice to put a message, telling users that the coupon is loading to show. otherwise they leave the site, thinking that the site is not working.

    In search based coupon like :
    &Search=Search

    When we click in coupon, it load the home page instead of the user search.

      This is a Clipper issue. They have kept is disabled probably because not every mobile device supports Flash, which is required for the Copy button to work.

  • edealsetc

    I mentioned this over in the Clipper forums, version 1.6 but I’ll send you the link so you can be in the loop – http://forums.appthemes.com/report-clipper-bugs/internet-explorer-bug-relating-affiliate-87175/

    Apparently whatever you did in your child theme is working effectively on Internet Explorer 11, while the mother them Clipper is not!? This is exclusive to Internet Explorer, this bug. Any chance of you working with Clipper to fix this bug because you clearly know what you are doing, and they do not!?

    Otherwise, I’d appreciate a contact if you would be so kind?

      Hi there,

      May be my eyes are deceiving me but, as far as using just Clipper is concerned, I see the same behaviour across all the browsers, nothing different in IE11. Clipper can either open the popup or the link depending on the state of the “Direct Link” option. I don’t think it was ever meant to do both. I have no clue how something is apparently not there in Clipper works for you on Chrome, Safari and Firefox.

      CouponJoy on the other hand, is a plugin (not a child theme) which works on Clipper as well as any Clipper + child theme combo, to do both. It exists precisely because Clipper can’t do both.

  • edealsetc

    Mohsin,

    Clipper 1.6 has the function built in now, where when you click on the coupon initially it opens up the lightbox AND opens up a new tab with the affiliate url within it. If you go to the demo link I sent you can test it in Firefox, and Chrome you will clearly see that, I tested it on 3 computers all on both those two browsers. So it does what your plugin does.

    However, if you do the same test within IE11 when you click on the coupon it ONLY pops up the lightbox which displays the coupon. It does NOT open, nor attempt to open the affiliate link in another tab.

    I’ve tested it on 3 machines, on Windows 7 and IE11 and the other three browsers and all exhibit the same behavior as above. Do you not see this?

    That said, here are some Coupon Joy specific questions, as I see your plugin is quite handy!

    1.) Does it work with the Discounty child theme, fully tested?
    2.) Is it not possible to work with Clipper promotional coupon types? It seems to be limited there? Can this be done?
    3.) Can it, when opening the lightbox and affiliate link in another tab, ALSO copy the coupon code for the visitor at the same time?

    Thanks so much!

    • edealsetc

      P.S. I forgot to ask, is the current version of Coupon Joy compatible with Clipper 1.5, which was prior to the implementation of the “Lightbox”, so pre-lightbox?

      To be honest, I tried again and am yet to see the new change, so weird. The change log only mentions:

      Added option “Direct Link” to choose outgoing links behaviour (redirect to destination URL or popup window with actions)

      The answers to your questions below:

      1. Yes.
      2. No, it opens the popup built in Clipper, there is no popup for promotions in Clipper.
      3. No, for the same reason as above. It only alters the tab positions, nothing else.

      • edealsetc

        Thanks, Moshin – Okay, on answer number three (3) above. Would adding the ability to copy the coupon at the same time as it alters the tab positions, using clipper’s built in copy function be something you would consider adding? I see several others have asked.
