Pop up ads obscuring posts

Recommended Posts

Just recently I've started to get pop up ads appearing that obscure content, these appear to be placed through google and there is an option to delete, when you do this the ad disappears but I can still not read the obscured content, only happens on TLF, any ideas?

Thanks. I was dicking around with the ads yesterday so probably broke something. I'll get that fixed ASAP :)

I’ve been getting it for a few days now @Bibs, so not something you’ve broken in the last 24hrs.

Good to know, thanks. I'll have a look into why it's happening, it shouldn't be!

I had the same thing the other day though not on TLF. I got it on a newspaper website. Can't remember which one.

Could this be something that Google have done?


All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I bought a cheapo Android phone to control/view the CCTV I installed in my Mum's house. Worked fine for a month or so, then started popping up random ads all over the place. Very annoying when I was using it as a sat nav to compare with my current phone.

I'm getting random ads (world cup tickets? No thanks!) obscuring posts again, any ideas where they are coming from? It doesn't happen on any other sites.

As above - I have had problems today too, on both iPhone and android tablet. Issues restricted to this site only. Getting a bit frustrating now.

Got to say I agree Lee i hate paying every invoice ever but the £20 a year for this place is actually a pleasure.

Being a full forum member without question has its benefits.

Not all of them obvious - but the assistance and support the community gives here is very real  👍

Sorry, the TLF Emergency Response Team was down the pub last night. We'll look into it when we're back at work next week, time allowing :)

It's not top of the list as paying £2/month stops it and benefits the site and yourself, but I will look at the code and see why the ads are obscuring posts as they aren't meant to. 

We have just signed a new £7k over 24 months hardware deal for the server btw, as I mentioned before the internet isn't free which is why free accounts have to view a lot of ads. Paid members see the sponsor ads only, all of which are Lotus specific so useful, as opposed to the Google ads which are based on your internet history.

Thanks, I hadn't realised there was a subscription option.

Think you can get a provenance certificate and a detailing kit for gold !! Well worth it just for that 👍

I had a lot of Thai dating adverts pop up ages ago - they looked real nice 😂

And now my laptop's gone the same way (either using Chrome or Internet Explorer), so all my devices (iPhone, iPad & laptop) are now hampered with ads obscuring typically 3 posts per page. I know I am only on Basic Account terms and have no issue with seeing the ads between posts, but surely @Bibs something must be awry if people's posts cannot be read? Do I need to change some settings for example?
