We should be honest: although we try to, we do not solve all the problems on a website. It’s like changing the engine in the car: you also have to take care of the wheels, mirrors and the painting.

It’s a form’s normal behavior. You just witnessed how we among other methods make your Convertful forms unannoying. It’s not displaying again due to behavior settings of ‘Dont Show Again’ conditions.
