ad popping up

I have seen this website pop up almost everytime I clicked on a topic this morning:

http://www.bannerplusapi.com/

the page loaded and then froze. I had to block that site to get into the forums. is this a new ad?

Re: ad popping up

Try downloading a plugin called "Adblock plus" that may help your problem.

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../adblock-plus/

Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ibdccddilifddb

Re: ad popping up

To remove the ad you have to fight Bully. Online applications only and there's a waiting list: www.iwanttofightbully.com

Re: ad popping up

I blocked the ad. My day job is network security, I was wondering if anyone else noticed it.

Re: ad popping up

Is the ad popping up in places it shouldn't? If it's just part of our normal ads then I don't see what the problem is. But if it's not, then we'll have to see what the problem is. Can you be a little more specific?

Re: ad popping up

It pops up when I goto a sub forum. The page loads and just hangs. I cannot get past it. IT doesn't display a click here to continue I would not be able to get to a sub forum if I didn't block the ad. I din't think the page loads correctly or finishes loading.

Re: ad popping up

It happens to me too when I'm on Internet Explorer, but not on Chrome (with Adblock). For IE users, maybe you can use simple adblock?

When I click on General WWE section or any section I am re-directed to this page - http://www.bannerplusapi.com/ like the OP.

Re: ad popping up

Yes, this!

I tried to log in last night, around midnight eastern timezone.
Everytime I clicked on a section, I was re-directed to that site.
Every single time, and there is no button to close it or return to the boards.


Today, I just downloaded an Ad blocker (adfender, was free).
I also had to add the site to my restricted sites.
But, it is definitely a problem.
