Problems with Spam/advertising

Postby gp-models » Tue Nov 05, 2019 6:07 am

Actually when i open F1M i have a lot of spam/advertising on the right side between control panel, it started yesterday. When i open a Thread, there is advertising even in posts, or between postings, am i the only one with this problem??

When I open the site on my smartphone half the site is advertising at the first moment.
It's not what I looking for.

Only get this on my phone, not the PC. Seems to be a pop-up-blocker thing.

I have it on pc, still wondering cause i did not change the settings and a pop up blocker is active. Never had this before, but it`s realy boring!
Edit: Cleaned the cage and cookies but it does not help, i hope Doc E can help to clear the situation.

Yeah, I don't mind adverts on the site, you need to generate some money etc, but they were appearing in the middle of a post, so we're appearing below a paragraph, then the same post would continue, which was slightly annoying. If you could get them just in the page header, or between comments it's be fine, just in the middle of a post is a bit odd.

Do they automatically appear underneath a random <p> tag I wonder?
