Coupon Joy with Clipper Broken for Google Chrome
Okay, I know this is not specifically a Clipper theme bug but a LOT of us are using Coupon Joy for Clipper and with the recent update to Google Chrome, which constitutes 60% of web users this is a critical issue. Anyone else realize this? I am under the impression that Mohsin is not developing this plugin but I would hope someone can patch this issue ASAP or get a hold of him? Problem is as follows:
As others have mentioned, since the first of August Google Chrome has updated the default “Advanced” settings, specifically sub settings under // Privacy & Security // Site Settings // Pop-ups & Redirects // that defaults this to “Blocked” instead of previously, “Allowed”.
In doing so the Coupon Joy coupon lightbox no longer functions, it is blocked as a pop-up and simply redirects to the partner site without the user being able to see or copy, thus use the coupon code in question. This equates to lost sales on most Chrome browser clicks. A user would literally have to go in and change this setting without knowing it's need to "allow" for the script to work now in Chrome...
In other browsers, including Safari and Firefox Coupon Joy still works as it should but with 60% of web traffic coming from Chrome this is a huge potential revenue loss for the affiliate community! Can you please address this in a patch? I am using the 1.6.x Clipper platform which this was designed for originally by the way but this issue affects the 2.x as well.
