"Pop Over not added." Message

We've used this plugin on other installations and it has worked flawlessly. Now when creating a Pop Up we just get a message that states "Pop Over not added." with no explanation what is wrong.

    Hello there @mmedia,
    Can you please verify that you are using this as the administrator of your site?
    If yes, then please try the following:
    From your dashboard deactivate and DELETE the plugin.
    Then upload it via FTP (not using the automated installer) and re-activate it.

    Please let me know if that works...

    @aristath It turned out to not be a plugin conflict. We are using the "New Blog Template" plugin, and this plugin stores an option popover_installed with a value of 5 so every site created with the "New Blog Template" plugin gets created with that option and value which prevents the databases from being created. Adding a function which checks for the presence of the databases upon saving the popup would be ideal.


    global $wpdb;
    if( !$wpdb->get_row("SHOW TABLES LIKE '{$dbtable}'") ){
    	$sql = "CREATE TABLE  "  .$dbtable . "
    			uid INT( 11 ) NOT NULL ,
    			column_one VARCHAR( 60 ) NOT NULL ,
    			column_two VARCHAR( 30 ) NOT NULL ,
    			time DATETIME DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00' NOT NULL ,
    			something VARCHAR( 100 ) NOT NULL ,
    			some_result VARCHAR (1) ,
    			data LONGTEXT NOT NULL ,
    			PRIMARY KEY ( id ) ,
    			INDEX ( uid, something, some_result )
    	require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php');

    I just wanted to say that I am having the same problem with this plugin. It has been successful for me on other installations, so this was a surprise. I have gone through the solutions you provided here without much luck:

    - It is the only plugin that is currently active (out of 3 total installed plugins)
    - I switched to the Twenty Twelve theme with no luck
    - I have only installed it via FTP 3 times, never with the automatic installer
    - I also made sure to upgrade our install from 3.5.1 to 3.6.1

    Any more possible suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi @DG.

    Could you add this piece of code at the end of blogtemplatesfiles/integration.php ?

    add_filter( 'blog_template_exclude_settings', 'nbt_popover_remove_install_setting', 10, 1 );
    function nbt_popover_remove_install_setting( $query ) {
    	$query .= " AND <code>option_name</code> != 'popover_installed' ";
    	return $query;

    This should solve the issue.

    I'll add it in the next New Blog Templates release.
