Every forum has advertisment on it.
You can remove it by buying credits and then spending them to remove the advertisment.

Yeah but then when I first started my forum there were no advertisement appearing anywhere on my webpage. It just popped out now. And point is, it's not Forumotion's advertisement. I'm thinking, maybe it's because I submitted my forum to a few search engines today. So now they can put advertisement on my forum however they like...? Or it doesn't work that way?

No sir, the advertisment is placed by Forumotion because they earn money with it. They place an iframe containing advertisments for Google. As long as you're the only one on the forum (admin) the advertisment doesn't show. (not sure)

Hi jimmy Wink

Yes when you first make your forum the adds are not there but as soon as our servers pick up your forum it will place the add's on your site there is really nothing you can do to remove them with out paying for credits to remove them like the other member Ahkrir has just said.

Most add's will show up on your forum within 1 to 24hrs of making your forum. you can limit the adds down a little by doing the following step

ACP >>
General Tab at the top of your page >>

Forum >> Configuration >> General part of the settings look for
Reduce the number of displays for images advertisments : YES
Activate ads : GUESTS SAVE
Hope this helps a little Wink

I see my friend! I went to check out other people's forum and it's the same for them. I just didn't understand why it didn't pop out for the first few days when I first started my forum until just now. And there were people using it~ So basically, the only way to get rid of that is by buying a domain right? :-) And seems like you have a good idea.. so I might as well ask this question that I was gonna post: Can I add "Google Adsense" to my forum even if I'm a free user (without buying a domain) and earn money? And I also know adding Google Adsense, they will check to see if your site's content is enough or not. I wonder... looking at my site on what I have so far, can anyone tell me if the details&content is enough for Google Adsense? http://chillax.forummotion.com/

I don't know about Google Adsense. APE will know.

About getting completely rid of advertisments:
You need to buy credits and then spend them to remove the advertisments.
No the advertisments are not removed when a domain is bought. (for as far as I know)

Could this be the reason why there's an advertisement pop up on top of my forum? If it's not Forumotion's advertise. I'm sure there's got to be a way to disable/remove it? o.O

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!

Buying a domain name and removing ads are two separate purchases. Buying a domain name will not remove the ads.

yes you can place your Google Adsense on your forum to make money.

All we ask is that the add's don't break any of our TOS.
But i have seen a lot of forums do this and the add's we have on the forum's are just the same but there only there for the Host of ours to make money by.
