Popups
My members and I are getting alot of popups when we are on the board. I have plenty of credit and I"m on the variable plan so I shouldn't have popups.

I've ran virus scans, spyware, you name it. Its only when we are on my board, not other boards on other servers (or surfing the net).

Would it be possible to switch servers? Thanks :smile:

Re: Popups
Hi mommyof_2, i've just visited your board and went into some forums, but didn't receive any pop up's, have you downloaded anything recently that might have been bundled with hidden advertising? Some programs are bundled with advertising. If you are finding that you get them on a specific thread then I would investigate the images people have for signatures or avatars. Sometimes websites will throw a pop up at a URL when an image is loaded. :smile:

Re: Popups
Nope, not downloaded anything new and I haven't gotten them anywhere else on any board or site. I have a pop up stopper and it usually blocks them all.

I'm not the only one getting them though...its 2 other ppl. I don't understand! I'm running yet another spyware scan and gonna do another virus scan. But I've ran them all yesterday and my computer is clean. ?

Re: Popups
I went onto the board just to the main page just now & got a single pop up. So it''s still happening just not as many as last night?

Re: Popups
Do you host any of your boards images on websites instead of in your boards File Hosting? If so, sometimes websites will throw a pop up at a URL when an image is loaded :smile:

Re: Popups
Well here is what most of the pop ups say in the address bar>> about:blank. & they are nearly always blank pop ups.
I do however use photo bucket to host some siggies but in all the time the members have used that place, it's never caused pop ups. I'll go to the site & email ask them as well if I need too.

Re: Popups
Not sure where these are coming from but thought I should mention that we started getting these popups today...I've been getting them all evening on our board. And these are also blank popups. I've run AdAware several times tonight and come back to the board and got them again. Couple other members have mentioned getting them also. I'm not sure about what url might be causing it...the last time they showed up all I did was view Who's Online and then back to the main forum page.

Our board images are hosted on BbBoy, although I have a ton of graphics folks who also use Photobucket to store images....but the pop up problem just started today.

Re: Popups
It's still happening on Parents Retreat, and now several more members are getting them too. The rate has slowed a bit, but I got 6 just today.
