Just to allay any worries, PF hasn't been hacked The forum is working with a new ad company.

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

Well, on an Apple phone, depending on the ad, it is taking almost half the screen! In landscape mode!

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

I would also like to suggest that as a supporting member, I should be exempt from ads, I would figure that would be a perk of supporting the forum, and secondly as Flboy stated and I agree with, it takes up a good portion of my screen, both on iPhone and on my laptop.

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

Too bad! On it’s original configuration, I would visit the sites quite often! Now I am x-ing it out before it finishes loading!
And by making it ‘float’ I now find it obtrusive!

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

Iíve noticed if you ďXĒ it out, it goes to ignore for like 30 seconds but then comes right back.

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

With my MacBook Pro it takes up about 1/6 of the screen.

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

Yep, I’m getting sunglasses and along the bottom. I’m in portrait mode it’s small and almost unobtrusive. But when it goes into landscape mode it makes the site unusable.

Re: Grey strip along the bottom of screen

The footer ad should go away once you are logged into the site. It should be gone by tomorrow.

You should update the hosts file on your Windows PC's and Macs . It will get rid of ads on most if not all sites.

Here's another instruction page
