Bug Reports and Suggestions
For a better chance of me seeing bug reports and suggestions please post them here!
Q: DLC for a game I don't own is not being filtered.
A: The DLC list is manually maintained by me. It's updated roughly every week. If DLC is missing or needs fixed please submit an issue report for DLC. and I'll fix it for the next DLC database update.
Q: I have IE, please make a version for me.
A: Please update to a modern browser that supports addons. IE will never be officially supported.
Q: I keep losing my settings and filters.
A: Please ensure that your cache and cookies are not being deleted when you close your browser. The addon relies on them for saving settings.
Q: Can I import my filters from Zo's Addon into SGE?.
A: Yes! You can import all of your custom filters from Zo's Addon by pressing Import Zo's Addon (SGE) in your giveaway filters control panel.
Q: A topic says it has new comments, but I can't find any.
A: The New Comment count within a thread is per page. There may be new comments on a different page. However due to technical limitations with how new comments are tracked the counter may be incorrect if comments are deleted. You can mark a topic as read by clicking on the # New button on the forum index.
Q: Some of my wishlist games aren't being highlighted?
A: Most often this is an issue caused by a limitation of SteamGifts. SteamGifts only records your top 25 wishlist games. Unless your game is in your wishlist in your sync page then SteamGifts Plus won't know that its in your wishlist.
Q: Why is SteamGifts Plus not on the Google Play Store or Mozillas Add-On Store?
A: Both of these stores would limit the development and features of SteamGifts Plus and in some cases delay updates to SteamGifts Plus by weeks.
