Forum Problem ! Empty Forum Problem !

Sorry to post this here, but no other section available for forum issues ot technical problems.
I generally use an ipad for convenience for most of my internet work. Until about three days ago, all was fine & log in no problem at all. There is & always was an advert on screen for an annoying advertisement for an online computer game, but as this was in the panel above the user name, password & log in area, this posed no problem. Now however, this has for some reason moved down & is blocking the log in panel, preventing forum access ! I can access as I am doing now via lap top, but thought perhaps should report this glitch & maybe others are having same problem ? Tried all I know to resolve but no deal.

I have found that there have been a variety of aggressive adverts that plague the mobile version of the forum, they don't impact the desktop site in the same way as you note. It was quite bad a few months ago but got better after the forum software was upgraded.

You could try clearing your cookies or using a private mode browser window on your tablet which may help. Longer term I guess there isn't that much that can be done other than installing an advert blocker, as free hosting of a forum will come with the proviso that there will be adverts.

Thanks guys...The ad. didn't bother me before, I just switch off to anything other than forum based, it was the fact that the ad. blocked out my ability to log in... I had already cleared & blocked cookies, but no go.

In Italy at the moment and I think there is an iPad in the car, will check it out later, currently using a Nokia Lumia on classic view with no issue's?

As said one of the downsides to hosting a free forum is the advertising aide of things but very few would pay to join a forum, I think the general thought is that I you have to pay it is a scam?

Will get back to you once I have found the iPad

Hi I was previously using the classic version as my pref. Having reverted back to other view, the issue is no longer apparent

Same problem here on iPad in classic view, had to log on via the mobile view then revert to classic

Will message the forum providers and advise them of this

No reversing S-D,apart from a Dacia Duster hire car that was lost and was retreating back down and a few trail bikes we were on our own, apparently according to my other half I always attempt something too late in the day and with never enough daylight........it all adds to the excitement I say
