Solved Page Automatically Reloading Ads Every 5 Seconds Sometimes

Post by mercuryfan on June 16th 2014, 5:21 pm

Okay, I have a problem both on the forum I administrate and on forums where I am only a regular member.  It has become so frustrating to me that I need to figure out how to prevent it ASAP.

The problem is that sometimes when I click on a link to go from one forum page to another page in the same forum, the new page automatically reloads its ad every 5 seconds (if not more often).  Even though it is semi-rare for me to get this problem just when going from one page to another like I described above, it is virtually impossible to get rid of when it does happen, in other words to get any page I bring up to not automatically reload its ad every 5 seconds or less.  Is there a way to prevent this from ever happening to me?

Good morning!

You can let me know the URL of the forum with a picture representation of the problem?

Hello,

When the time runs out, when you click continue does it take you to the page you requested to go to?

Regards.

How can I do a picture representation of the problem when the problem is that things keep on changing automatically?  If things would stay still long enough for me to take a picture, I would be happy and thus there would not be a problem.

As for the URL, I have seen it happen in 3 different Forumotion forums.  Do you really want the URL for all 3 of them?

There is no Continue button to click.  I am taken to the page that I had requested to go to, however the problem is that this new page automatically reloads every 5 seconds (if not more often).  The constant reloading of the page, without me doing anything to prompt this reloading, is what the problem is.

Now that it just happened to me again, I am prepared to answer this.  It doesn't seem to be an adfly page, no.  The page that appears is the standard forum page, with the standard forum text on it, but the ad on this page makes the page reload (to get a new ad) all the time when this problem happens.  It's this constant reloading/constant change that drives me crazy.  And because I'm using Firefox when I browse my forums, I was able to notice the site it loads the ad from - kind of (yes, that kept on changing also).  Where Firefox says it's loading its data from, it seemed to be the adnxs site most often when it was constantly reloading for a new ad.

Note that I wouldn't mind if it just loaded the standard one ad on the forum page, and kept that one ad there without any reloading.

Do you have JavaScripts or any kind of codes on your forum?  It could be that the coding of one of them is causing this issue.

JavaScripts or any kind of codes?  Hmmmmmm.  The forum I administrate doesn't - though I admit the few times I've seen this problem on that forum, I've found it easy to get rid of.  As for the other two forums I've seen this problem on (where it hasn't been as easy to get rid of when it happens), I'll have to ask the administrators.  I'll post again in a day or two with the answer they gave me.

Hello,

To turn off javascript completely, go to:
AP > Modules > Javascript Management:
Enable Javascript: Set to No

Also, please provide a link to your forum. Thanks.

Based on what I have found out, I would now like to be able to turn JavaScripts off when this problem happens to me.  But looking over Jophy's directions, I don't know what AP refers to.  I am an experienced computer user running Firefox 30.0 on a Mac with OS 10.6.8 installed, but I can't figure out how to get to that Modules choice.

Also, here are the two forums where I have noticed this problem being really bad :

Okay, I finally figured out how to turn off JavaScripts - and it looks like it's working to prevent a reoccurance of the problem.  So I'm marking this problem as Solved.
