xx Ads obscuring boards list on Ipad
« Thread started on: Oct 9th, 2016, 06:23am »

Hi,

It's been brought to my attention by a member of leyland.conforums that when viewing the home page on iPad, the top of page ad obscures the boards list.

Is there a fix for this problem?

Regards,

It would be immensely helpful in solving the rendering issue on the iPad if you could gather some information from that member for us.

  • iPad model
  • Browser Name and Version
  • Screen Resolution
  • Screenshot Example

    The member tells me that it is a 16GB iPad and it is using the latest version of Safari.

    Another member has flagged up the same issue when viewing the forum on his phone.

    Oh dear, I spoke too soon! I've had several members tell me the issue has returned. One has posted a screenshot in this thread. http://leyland.conforums.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&num=1476640947

    Hmm. The ads keep ignoring the size restrictions are code sets for them.

    When the ad providers code detects a mobile browser it attempts to load a "mobile friendly" version of the ad (smaller width longer height to accomodate the smaller screen) except in this case that longer height interferes with the function of the board.

    I thought by hard defining the size of the ad container that I would have solved the issue, but I will have to look at another avenue. I may have to have Roger contact the Ad Agency.
