    Hi admin, the site now has a stupid ford go further ad.
    It pops up at the bottom of the page, plays a video to slow things down, moves with the page and gets in the way.
    You have to close it on every new pagen
    You must try not to click on it when scrolling down a page quickly.
    And on several occasions it has blocked the 'post reply' button to prevent replying on a thread.

    Please fix,
    Thanks,
    Deuce

    On iPhone the post button is always blocked. The only way I can post is to rotate my phone. Very annoying.

    Im bombarded with pop up ads on both my phone and laptop. Sometimes it opens a new tab. Very annoying but i think that may be part and parcel with a free forum as it generates revenue for the site i believe.

    Use an ad blocker. I have been for years so no popups or ads here :)

    Download an add blocker for your laptop, there free and that'll fix the add issues
    I always view the forum on my laptop and haven't had an add or pop up for years since I downloaded one
    As for the phone:
    I tried the forum on my Iphone while on holidays with no laptop, to say it was painful on the phone is an understatement....It sucked
    I even got pissed off with trying to view it on the missus' Ipad
    I only ended up logging in to the forum 2 or 3 times in the 6 weeks that I was away

    I'am the same.
    Either pc (42inch screen. Easier to view), or the laptop.
    My web browser is Opera. Has a built in ad blocker.
    To much of a pain using the phone.
    I could use the phone with the 55 inch tv using chrome cast, but still a pain, so l don't usually bother.

    I thought there was one for android too?
    Never tried using it though.

    Hopefully @Darren will see this, I believe he can banish problematic adverts.

    Cheers mate, that'd be awesome.
    A busy life means I only use the laptop every fortnight or so. But almost daily JC on the phone. (I think an LG for the record, not really into phones enough to care)
