Intrusive pop up ads Quote | Reply

Hi There, I've been getting problems all day (I'm in Oz) with pop us ads on the site. They are overlaying the page and making all links on the page inoperable.

I'm getting the same issue on Basejumper.com as well.

I've attached a screen shot. I've rebooted my laptop, restarted the browser and still not managed to fix it. I can refresh some of the pages a few times and end up with an ad that stays at the top, but a couple of pages are unreadable and won't refresh out of the problem.

Cheers

Yep had the same all day. Was just about to start a thread about it but you beat me to it.

Good, it's not just me then! Was wondering whether it was my own personal technology fail Laugh

Click "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", checkmark "Turn on pop-up blocker".

Seems that there was a vertical ad placed in the horizontal ad space, which is causing it to go over the text.

Apologies about this. I will contact the ad department now and ask them to rectify the issue.

Thanks. It's still vertical today but at least you can click the links behind it now.

Yep, the ad department failed to rectify the problem. On the upside the site took a few extra advertising cents from me trying to avoid the vertical Travelex advert and failing repeatedly :)

+1, happy to have the ads while they work easily and don't use most of the screen. Good case of the advertiser's cleverness causing the audience to flee....

Still happening. The offending ads seem to be

1. ING Direct
2. KOMLI
3. Travelex

Can you tell them Basejumper.com has the same issue with the same ads, please! :)

I'm also getting the ads. Often makes it impossible to read the first 2 or 3 posts in a thread.

Fingers crossed it gets sorted soon.

-sigh-

Give it a few more hours guys, if it's not changed by later today I will be pulling the header ads off the sight temporarily until they get it sorted.

Thanks. On the bright side, at least I know I didn't pick up something nasty from surfing dodgy websitesBlush
