Solved Random popup ads

Post by Mimóza December 29th 2020, 4:20 am

Hi guys,
I'm back and I'd need your help again... Random popup ads 1f62c 
So my forum is having random ad popups and I have no idea what's causing it.
It's not just for me, 2 other members reported it too, so yeah... Random popup ads 1f614 

The past ~3 years the forum was closed. I've just installed our very first skin back recently and we have no js added, only the Christmas snowing thingie.

Forum address: https://graphicballoon.forumotion.com/

Do you have any tips where I should look around to find the thing that's causing the issue? Random popup ads 1f607
Thanks for all the help!~

Hi Joost,
Thanks a lot. Smile

So is this expectable from now on without an upgrade? Random popup ads 1f615 

Some of the ads are malicious.
A screenshot I got from a member and what they said:

I just got another one while trying to click the BOLD icon on the editor.

Are these ads from Google?   If yes, they are a new way Google advertises.

First of all regarding this screenshot, the alert concerns resources used by the forum theme that have nothing to do with advertisements.

It is therefore necessary to clean up your theme and in particular at the level of the external resources included in your theme.

For example, I think that resources hosted on domains with the .ovh extension are suspect. This is particularly the case with the visit counter in the footer.

The pop-ups that are generated come from the theme and not from the advertisements displayed by Forumotion.

To startn, try to remove the counter widget here:

Thanks so much! Very Happy

Yea, it might come from that then.
It's weird, I don't recall having this issue when we used to have this skin and the counter.  blackeye

Anyway, most likely it's solved then.
Thanks a lot again! I appreciate the help. Very Happy
