I attempted to post in the thread I started about the forum being unusable of an evening (it happened again) but I got an unformatted page with the following text:

Sorry but the page you have requested has encountered the following error:

I apologise for the inconvenience.

 

There was also a side-bar showing the sections of the main site (the shop).

Since yesterday each time i go on the forum daft adverts come up on the page that are doing my head in.

Thought it was maybe just my computer but tried at a mates house yesterday and was the same.

They are either side of the page and pissing me off :D

Any help to get rid of them please ?.

The only ads on the forum are the catawiki, amazon and the Petitioncrowncoins ad. Everything else is more than likely just cookies following you around. Try clearing your cookies then they should disappear.

Also they're pretty nicely tucked away so aren't very obtrusive, at least not on my screen.

I use ad blocker on my PC, so don't get any ads on there.  On my tablet I get the ads you mention above, Matt. But on my phone I get an ad for "Confused.com", which gets in the way of my keyboard when I try and post a reply, which is a nuisance.

here is a screenshot

yes mike thats what i had to use adblock or whatever its called :)

Pete, the screenshot I just posted shows the ad I get on my phone. Whilst I've got no issue with ads in and of themselves, it's when they start to interfere with posting or reading, that they become a bloody nuisance.

The payment button was probably for a more advanced version. The basic program is usually free. To be honest, that's all you generally need. It just blocks the ads. 

To be honest, it's a shame, as many forum sites rely on ads to remain subscription free. But the advertisers abuse the software by loading really intrusive ads, which obscure half the page, or start playing a video, unprompted. Or even load another page when you click on the cross which should close them. It's a totally counter productive routine, as all it does is piss off the forum members/readers.

AdBlock doesn't work any longer for me on this site as all of the links to the individual forums, posts, etc. are blocked. This isn't an issue as I'd just enable ads (as it supports Chris and the forum) but when I do I can no longer see the forum. Clearing cookies doesn't help and the only site it affects is PreDecimal.

@Chris Perkins - has something changed with the side banners in Invision's template formatting?

This is exactly what I was referring to. Ads interfering with reading and/or posting. Surprised at block not working for you.
