Pop-up ads when using an ipad

I recently switched from using an hp laptop to an iPad. On the iPad, this site is borderline unusable due to the pop-up adds. They appear every time you click to do anything. And I mean anything. You have to close an add that jumps around the page not only every time you change forums but each time you move between threads and individual responses to threads in a forum. All you are doing is closing out pop-up adds. I know that you must have sponsors to keep these valuable forums going but I can't believe that you ever would have intended or agreed to what is happening. My hp had a pop-up blocker but the apple products, especially the pads do not. And I imagine that more and more people who just surf the Internet and who travel a lot are changing over to these pads. This is the only site I have had this problem with. Thought you'd want to know. Thanks for all the great work you folks do!

Re: Pop-up ads when using an ipad

I am confused. Do you mean you're going to try and log in and reduce the ads? Or that I need to log in?

I am logged in and have my iPad set so that I am always logged in. I did try and log out and then log back in. No change in the ads. again, this in on the iPad only. A pop-up blocker on a regular computer prevents this from happening.

Re: Pop-up ads when using an ipad

Hi

I have no idea if iPad has a pop-up block app. You will need to check with the company.

Best wishes.
