View Full Version : Pop ups?

10-05-2010, 08:00 AM
Okay. I dig this place and understand that it costs money to keep it going. Don't mind the banner ads or outside links; have even checked a few out. BUT-the pop ups (long rectangle top-to-bottom) that pop up and get in the way of the first post in a thread are a real PITA. You can't even click on a close button to get rid of them. (The one that just set me off was a Ford ad.) Anything we can do to get rid of these or at least work around them so they don't interfere with reading forum content? Thanks!

Annoying X2 on blocking out text with no way to close or move advertisement ....

The only time I have notice anything being blocked is when a pic is attached and the person posting it dosent hit the enter button before linking the pic.

Yeah I haven't noticed too many popups. Maybe if you hit Refresh it'll reload the page without it there? Those long pictures on the right side of the screen are super annoying when I try to browse the forum on my phone. Every new page I open I have to scroll down down down down a little at a time until I get past both long pictures before any of the text starts. That's not actually a problem with the forum though, just a random gripe while we're on the subject.

I shouldn't post how to block the thing that brings in money. But if you would like to know how to get rid of these ads, PM me.
