Summary13345: showpopups in config.php seems to have no effect anymore

I want to hide the warning popups, but setting showpopups to 0 seems to have no effect anymore.

It would be cool to have this setting for templates.

Steps To Reproduce

set 'showpopups'=>0 in config.php

TagsNo tags attached.

I will donate to the project if issue is resolvedNo

Server OS (if known)Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

No Problem, please find the Screen attached. There is a second error as well in the screenshot.
The translation in the inside warning is doubled, just with other words.

My expectation is the pop warning text (only one sentence) as inside warning with 'showpopups'=>0 in config.php

I got this information from the documantation:

showpopups: Show popup messages if mandatory or conditional questions have not been answered correctly:
'1'=Show popup message (default);
'0'=Show message on page instead;
'-1'=Do not show the message at all (in this case, users will still see the question-specific tips indicating which questions must be answered).

For -1 : it's a new feature, and think you can use a css class easily.

I think the first part must be always send in HTML (for accessibility and no-js) but hide in some condition s(in was the case in answer_html/3.0-prealpha)

This issue is fixed in the latest version of LS .
By setting 'showpopups'=>0 in config.php, you should be able to hide popups.
