Pop up adds

Post by Okiecat » January 1st, 2019, 6:16 pm

Sorry, I know this is the football board But, is anyone else having a problem with pop ups? It is getting so annoying! I loved this sight until recently, now I can’t read anything without having to constantly close tabs.

They seemed to have lessened the past 24 hours, but, yes, they had taken over the site

Yes! Every time I come to this sight I get the “congrats you’ve won!” Ads. I have an iPhone and if you go to settings for safari and shut off the JavaScript it stops the pop ups.

Yes, I do every time. Shutting off cookies has helped but I still get some.

Yes. I was getting them too! Glad to hear it’s this site. Hope they get it removed.

I downloaded Norton Ad Blocker because of issues on another site. Works great and blocked the issue mentioned here. Just passing this along as a potentially helpful suggestion.

Thank you for the advice!

I keep getting the, "Congrats you've won!" like p5000 mentioned and I can't get out of it. I have to close the tab and start all over again, and again, and again… I hope turning of the Java script helps.

Same here. On the phone they overtake the screen often and I have to close out safari and reopen. Haven’t adjusted any settings yet, but yes, this site is getting ridiculous with the amount of adware crap. Hopefully the powers to be can adjust it down so it’s not quite so over the top
