At times, our WordPress Plugins may not produce the results that you expect.

Before opening a support request, please follow the below steps:

Hosting Requirements

Check that your site meets our Hosting Requirements.

Correct any items as necessary, such as outdated WordPress or PHP versions.

Plugin Version

Ensure the Plugin is up to date, per the applicable Changelog and Updating Documentation

Run Health Check & Troubleshooting

The Health Check & Troubleshooting Plugin allows a logged in WordPress Administrator to use a Troubleshooting Mode, where specific Plugin(s) can be activated.  This has no effect on site visitors, who will continue to view your web site as usual.  Any Plugins activated prior to running this check will remain active for site visitors.

In the WordPress Adminstration interface, install and activate the Health Check & Troubleshooting Plugin.

Once activated, click Troubleshoot:
Health Check & Troubleshooting Plugin: Enable

Activate the WP Zinc Plugin in question on the screen that appears by searching for it, and clicking the Enable while troubleshooting link:
Troubleshooting: Activate Plugin

If your support request relates to compatibility between our Plugin and a third party Plugin, activate said third party Plugin too.

With the specific Plugin(s) activated, repeat the step(s) that produced the initial issue / error.

If the issue resolves, slowly enable further Plugins using the above screen, repeating steps until the conflict is found.

Click Disable Troubleshooting Mode when done:
Disable Troubleshooting Mode
