flapper for flush valve

I replaced flapper in toilet but it doesn't come down when I flush. What could be the problem now.
Thank you

The problem could be the string of the flapper. It could be too short, it could entangle or there is an obstruction in your tank.

I know, some days, especially thursdays, bring all kind of plumbing problems.

Take the tank lid off and watch what is happening. It should be fairly obvious what is causing the hangup. Probably what dj1 said.
