    Pop-up ads on iPhone?

    Post by gravydb on Tue Jan 12, 2016 9:18 pm

    Does anyone here access this forum on a mobile device? Like an iPhone? And if so, are you plagued by tons of crazy pop-up ads?

    Most of the time I use my laptop to visit here, but every once in a while I'll use my iPhone, like when I get an email that indicates someone has added a post. The popups haven't been an issue till just recently, maybe the past week or so. I'm just curious if anyone else is experiencing it. What's weird is that this is the only site where I'm seeing the popups.

    Anyone?

    That old erectile dysfunction has finally got out into the public arena then Gravy?  Shocked You're streets ahead of me in the tech stakes.  I never use a mobile for browsing.  It's just too frustrating an experience after using a good PC for so many years.  (Luddites of the world unite!  You have nothing to lose but your woven grass twine.)  Laughing

    Where are you in the world, UK or USA, (EDIT: Duurrhhhh! PA I see), and what browser do you use?  It may be that your browser settings have been changed in some way.  There is usually a "block popup ads" setting which you can turn on.  I know first hand how settings can be changed either by accident or occasionally by other software without you knowing.  There is advice on how to prevent this on the web.  Hope it works, it's a pain in the a*se to have this going on.

    Hi bordonbert! You're funny Smile

    I'm using Safari. To be clear the popups are only occurring on my iPhone, not my laptop.

    I looked up some help online and followed these direction, and so far so good:

    Settings, Safari, Clear History

    So apparently it was my browser that may have been fudged up, although I'm not sure why this site was the only site triggering the popups (?) but oh well, it seems to be solved.
