Top 4 Reasons, Why is the bar not showing up on my website? (Quick Announcement Bar by Hextom)

No.1 Shopify admin banner

When you log in your Shopify admin and view the website at the same time, the black banner at the top (shown in the screenshot below) will display, and sometimes it could affect Quick Announcement Bar display. 

This black banner only displays when you log in Shopify admin and view the website at the same time. Other people do not see this. 

You could view the website without the black banner by log out the Shopify admin and refresh the website. Or you could use another browser to view the website.

The bar might not be compatible with your theme with the default settings. In these cases, we have provide the "placeholder" option (last one under the "position" settings in the bar configuration), using this option could make the bar compatible with different themes.

The App works by default with most of the themes. If you are seeing issue, please find if your theme is in the list below, and click to see the detailed instructions,

No.3 Geo location

If you have set the bar for certain countries, but you are not currently in one of these countries, then the bar would not display to you. 

You could either update the target countries, or use VPN/Proxy to get an IP address belongs to one of the selected locations.
