Okay, so get your device that has the ads, open up that link in the browser you get the ads on, and then copy the text from that link to a new reply in this thread.

Ok, it has stopped of its own accord. We are ad free at the moment. I was getting ads on my iPad at the time. Not now.

If it happens again I now know what to do, thanks.

Even though the problem is solved for you, you could help us prevent other users from having the same issue if you would open http://www.conforums.com/browser.cgi and tell me what the line of text at the top of the page says!


All ya gotta do is open it up on you iPad and either take a screenshot of the page or type out what the line says!

Thank you very much! With that we will be able to update the way the ads display for users with devices like yours!

If we can do anything more to help let us know!

Cheers.

This time the ads do not jump to full screen takeover but the ads are square and overlap important input boxes and info on the forum ovum. Regular rectangular ads pose no problem.

How do we eliminate these stupid square ads?

From my iPad which I believe should not be showing ads my way.

Best I can do is email a photo of my ipad. Used the MSN: gmail address in your profile. If that does not work I would need some guidance on how to get an ipad screen shot.

Currently it is a race to see if I can scroll and click on Conforums support before the ad fires up an covers the link. Getting more dexterous but it would be hugely better if the ads were rectangular and co existed with the forum content.. perhaps that is our fault but I need guidance.

Just to add, the Insticator ad that appears square on my ipad, appears as a normal rectangle on Win10 Edge browser.

I managed to think through the screen shot

Alright, sorry for the delay, I got to the ones you emailed me and after seeing these screenshots as well I can definitely see how these are obnoxious.

I'm gonna see if we can block the ad for your browser altogether, if nothing else as a temporary fix until Dave returns from holiday. Then we will have a discussion about a long term solution. As its very clear these ads are disruptive to normal forum usage.

Well things have changed a bit. My iPhone is clear of the problem, my iPad is not. The Insticator ad/animation still pops up as soon as I browse to Conforums.


Interestingly nothing else ever shows, no ads just Insticator.

This is the string for my iPad

Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; CPU OS 11_0_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/604.1.38 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15A432 Safari/604.1

The problem is very specific to Conforums, never see anything like it at any other time.

Fixed it seems, thank you for your time and effort.

Edit no, belay that, for a moment or two the Insticator box did not load, but back to normal now, it loads and overwrites menu items within a second or so.
