pop-up ads

Post by felicity4us2 on December 5th 2010, 7:06 pm

We have an ad-free boards. When I am posting, periodically an ad will pop up. Especially, when I click 'send'. I know that it is coming from here, because it happens only when I have just the forum open.

Is this common?

Best,
Felicity

Hi,

No this shouldn't be happening?

Could you please post a link to your board.
Have you removed your adds via Misc > Adds > For all or just to show for members.

hmm, that's odd?

Could you PM me with a test account to check this out for myself please?

EDIT: Hmm, now your forum is also under maintenance?

Yes, maintenance over now. Just a note. I use SeaMonkey. Could the adds be coming from there? They pop up quickly before I can really see them and remain open in a new window. I actually see them when I close the board window. that just doesn't sound like the type of ads used here.

I will email you.

With the post I made, I didnt get any adds to pop up after posting.

I'm thinking it's coming from the browser.

Have you personally tried another browser, other than FF?

well i dont know? Because i noticed what appeared to be a pop-out add on someones forum yesterday when i was doing support here.

But i am not sure if it is something they have put on there either.
But i know forumotion never had any pop-out add before and did not hear anything about them adding them either.

So if you happen to see them again please try to get a screen shot so we can try to determine where they may be coming from.

It is always from the same url - also came up with FF - haven't tried IE. But, doesn't come up when on other places on the web. Seemingly, just here.

thanks so much.

It didn't work, but I think it is coming from FF and SeaMonkey. Not sure, but I think I saw on pop up on another site. Thanks.

There are no such things on Forumotion about pop ups. Think your computer is doing this. Best thing is to get Ad Blocker on FireFox.

I am getting reports from members of other ads coming on our board. I am awaiting them to send me more information.

Yes others are getting the same adds from the same company - do I need to tell everyone to block that url - it is quite active.

Thank you.

Your picture has this SeaMonkey add-on in the URL. You should disable the add-on, that's what appears to be causing it.

Okay - wow - found it. We have a 'yell-box' on the board - that's where they are coming from - thank you so much for your help. I never thought that members would be getting popup adds from that. I will go pay for it now.
