Frequently Asked Questions
The Gift Hunt icon is not showing up on my website. What could be the problem?
If you tested the gift hunt session by collecting a gift, you've been marked as a user who already collected a gift and the icon won't be visible to you. Clear the cookies in your browser or use a private window to test your session.
It's also possible that your session is not active. Check your settings on the backend of your website.
If you chose the option to give unique gifts for every visitor it is also possible that you ran out of gifts. Check the hunters of your session to figure this out.
If none of the above solved your problem, please, get in touc with us.
The visitors can find the icons on my site but when they try to submit the form it keeps loading.
Make sure that your SMTP settings are correct and your website can send email messages. When a user completes the data collection form, the plugin will send them an email message (if you haven't turned it off). If something goes wrong with the email sending process, the form can stuck in the loading state.
If you use a security plugin, it can also happen that it blocks form submissions on your site. Make sure to check your settings and add Gift Hunt to the allowed forms / plugins.

Can I change the design of the success email?
You can use custom HTML to do that.
What happens if I choose the option to give a unique gift to every visitor and I run out of gifts?
If you run out of gifts, Gift Hunt won’t display the session icon for new visitors. If you run out of gifts while someone is filling the data collection form, the form will disappear when they submit it.
It looks like that someone collected more than one gift even though multiple gift collection is not turned on. How is this possible?
Gift Hunt is using cookies to identify visitors who already collected gifts in a given session. If someone removes these cookies, or using another browser or device to visit your site, they can collect additional gifts.
Will the session icon automatically pop-up after a user spent the defined amount of time on the website?
No, the icon will become visible when the visitor hits refresh or visits another subpage of your website.
When I preview the gift hunt session it doesn’t use the latest version of the settings I defined. Why is that happening?
Make sure that you saved your changes before you click on preview. If you saved your changes but the result is still the same, wait a few minutes and try it again.
Can I use my own icons for a session?
With the PRO version of the plugin, you can upload your custom icons for your session. With the free version, you can only choose one from the available icon options.
I can’t see my sessions/hunters/etc.
Try to deactivate and activate the plugin. Don't remove it or all the collected information will get lost! If this doesn’t solve the problem, get in touch with us.
I’ve sent a test success email to myself, but it looks like, that I’m not receiving it.
In most cases, it takes only a few seconds but sometimes it can take 10-15 minutes to deliver your email. Also make sure that you checked your spam/junk folder for the message.
