Post by jbrown0328 on March 9th 2011, 6:00 pm

just started a forum and it seems someone decided to block my title picture on the main page of the forum with an everchanging ad box, i tried deleting the title pic thinking it was somehow embeded in that but it actually looks like the ad is just blocking the title. can someone please help?

This doesn't mean you are hacked. This means you need to buy credits to remove them in the Misc Tab. Ad's are placed by Forumotion to get money and to be able to get new updates and pay the staff.

I dont see anything in that image link, and your forum is in maintenance.

But yeah it sounds like it's just the forumotion adds, every forum has them.
You can always reduce the amount of flash adds presented.. or if you want to completely remove then you you can buy credits to have them removed.

And like mrmaio has, the ads also pay to allow us all to have free forums.

okay, makes sense. its just a little weird that the ad, which is apparently put up by the guys at forumotion would be placed directly over the title of the forum blocking out the buttons to even navigate the forum, which basically scared away most if not all of the users i had generated, in fear of the forum being hacked. all to get me to purchase credits just so the ad wont be there anymore? this seems strange

well if the adds are covering your navigation bar then give us a screen shot or link to the forum so the techs can fix it.. the adds are not suppose to cover your forums navigation bar.

Unless it's a bad skin ? hope not because from the little bit i seen in your link it looked like a pretty cool skin.
