invasive popups?

I installed a popup blocker today, something I've never needed before, and then put GTAM on it's blacklist.

So far, so good.

I hope that this gets addressed sooner than later - I know some people will fall prey to those "Your computer has a virus and you MUST install this update to continue" type stuff.

So nobody wants to use the app? Still nothing here.

Last time I got an invasive popup was grade 10 when I had to write an answer on the board in math.

I'll see myself out.

Hey all... I believe I have a traced to our ad program.

I've stripped the ads from the old skin and can't get the popups.

As a solution until I can get to the permanent fix:

Go to your profile settings.

On the menu on the left you'll see general settings. Click that.

Near the bottom you'll see four skin - change that to vb4style Ole blue.

Let me know if you still get pop ups with that?

Thanks

That's the style that I have been using for the last couple of years. I get pop up's every 3rd or 4th click.

Is the app like tapatalk? because I hate tapatalk.

x2. I also hate mobile-view versions of websites - too many features/options go missing usually. I always opt for the full website version on my browser when mobile.

You will hate it then. Pretty much a clone.
It works for me because I'm pretty much useless with anything techy and this dumbs it down quite a bit.

My iPad was immune to the popups, but my Macbook was affected. I just switched to vb4style Ole blue and it seems to have done the trick.

Seriously? Still update you code and prevent them from I jectig code. daily user for years but I'm done until this is fixed up. So annoying.

Paul, might I suggest disabling the problematic template and forcing everyone to "ole blue" until you get things resolved? I fear that a lot of people are ending up with malware and virus' as a result of this, not to mention the user frustration and hit on traffic that can come along with it.

Fwiw I just switched to the old template and so far so good.

But most won't see that suggestion/fix. Just force it.

Is there an alternate workaround for those of us who don't want to see foreskin?

Switched to the old blue template.
Seems to be working thus far and have not gotten a pop up since switching back.

I only use ole blue as I don't like the newer format and still get pop ups.
