    I know that this is how the forum generates funds to keep it up. And I truly enjoy it but some of the ads block out the post. Any way of fixing this or is it something on my end.

    Wow, that's not right!

    It looks like an ad on mobile screen, correct? Did you click or hold your finger on something or anything else, or the page just loaded with that?

    I'm looking into why that is showing up and working on getting it removed.

    It just loaded like this. I am using samsung mobile phone. There was another ad that was the same way. But I don't remember who it was. Also get a scrolling banner ad that kinda sticks to the bottom of the screen while you read from post to post. I do believe that one is normal doesn't block the view of anything.

    I'm using an iPhone and have a similar experience with some of the ads. See image below.

    We're trying to track down the ad, but not sure which ad server it is coming from.

    Can you try to get the "click url" by point and holding on the ad until you get the "copy" or "copy url" option. Then copy / paste that URL to here so we can narrow down which ad server network is sending that ad.

    Sure. Next time I see one I will get the information for you. I normally browse the forums every day and the one I posted this morning was the first one I got since my original post last week.

    Just kind of curious, this occurs only on certain ads or from certain ad servers? Basically does this have to be addressed on a case by case bases or something that can be resolved by identifying the offending source? I believe I've seen it on different ads (not the shoe one) but didn't make any note of it at the time. Sorry I'm a web developer so I am just curious.
