Title: Adverts issues
Post by: Breezeblock on July 26, 2019, 12:14:01 PM
Hi,

Just a heads-up.  Adverts seem to be stopping the site loading for a length of time (30 secs to 2 mins) for me. Have turned my ad blocker back on for H&V as it is an unreasonable wait time for the site to load.  Seems to be happening on random adverts with no pattern.  I am running Chrome on Win7 Enterprise

Hello. Every time I go to a new page (or return to an old one) I get the pop up claiming to respect my privacy and asking if I accept ads/cookies.

I was getting the same in Firefox. I restarted my browser, which updated Firefox and it seems to have solved the problem.

I had the same, there’s a Privacy Warning thread below this  one, I bookmarked the link in the last message and that worked for me.

Thank you. It's clearly linked to my home computer as the work one has no such issue.

I'm not fussed about most of the adverts as you need to pay for the servers / sites. However the one that does my nut is the one that opens at the bottom of the screen. It normally only takes up the middle third but as it is transparent, it stops me clicking in the buttons / links at the bottom of the page. Takes me about 5 seconds to realise why each time, that is if it doesn't register me clicking post as a click on the advert itself.

You need to go into your Profile and change the theme to HandV GM

A dodgy advert is hijacking the browser to a flash update scam. Careful everyone without adblock etc.

You need to change your theme in Profile to the GM one.

I emailed a link of the redirect page across using the contact link across the top at the same time it was occurring. Seems to be a "New" Edge issue as fine in Chrome. I'll open Edge again and see if it does it.

I was losing the bottom third of a page. Refreshed Firefox and the issue seems to be solved.

More ad redirects today. This time it redirects the whole page to

Must be a day for it

Redirected to this one prompting for flash installing. Using safari on my iPad for both of these occurring.

There's a massive scrolling "Givemesport" banner at the bottom of the site, which seems to be evading both my Adguard and my GM theme!

Just started for me as well.

It looks well dodgy.

And me. Where has this come from?
Title: Re: Adverts issues

And me. Every time you click a new page it comes up.

Post by: TB on January 08, 2021, 07:08:15 PM
And me. Even tried loading an unused Linux virtual machine on another computer. The banner doesn't show when browsing the site as a guest, got the banner as soon as I'd logged in without even moving to a new page. Exploiting the GM theme somehow?

No, installed by me, l am in total control !!

Just puzzled by the fact that it doesn't show in guest mode, logged in using the default or v2 theme, but is instantly there using the GM theme.
