Ad Images Showing

Post by azredliner on August 25th 2010, 1:48 am

Why can't the developers stop messing with near perfection? The forums are going along fine, then BAM! Everything is screwed up again.

Now it's unwanted ad images on my forum.

Here's my settings:



Here's what I see:

Which one there particularly? If you're referring to the message on the white box, it's an ad and its normal to ForuMotion forums.

It's an image ad. In the Administration Panel I have these types of ads disabled.

I am having the same problem on my forum. I chose text ads only, and now I find ad images are showing up.

First they started redirecting links to advertisements, and now this. I now have a message on my forum main page telling users not to click the ads.

The issue about 'links redirecting to other page' is a feature of Forumotion to prevent illegal links to their free service/free forums.

I just don't know why such ads are appearing now.
edit;
I reported the issue to the techs.

Forumotion doesn't prevent the links at all. The URLs just get redirected to an ad first, then you can download the link.

Well, we can't do anything about it or to prevent it since it's already implemented.
