use an ad blocker on your browser. or download one.

but keep in mind those ads are probably how admin is financing this site.

There shouldn't be any pop-up ads.

I'm not allowing any campaigns to interrupt the users flow. How does it show itself? Does it show from which ad agency?

And yes, this site is solely financed by ads. Never wanted to make it a closed venue only for the "successful" breeders/handlers. Have it open for all. Problem with that is that the internet is chock full of bots/spiders/harvesters etc.. that put incredible strain on open sites.

I would guess that around 10% of traffic here is from actual living human beings. Trying to fight it is impossible, valid bots are doing a service (of sorts) and malicious bots simply hide as normal traffic, rotating IP addresses and user agents (what browser is viewing).
The 18th of Nov (2019) or yesterday the site got 350k web views, or around 2 million actions (since each page view does a ton of fetches from the server, like images (kept in a database) and side services.

It takes a large server and bandwidth to do that uninterrupted.

When I select a topic from the index page of 'Latest posts', when it is going to that topic I am getting a page come up with an ad in the middle, and nothing else. It's like the ad is hijacking the link to topic. I then have to use the back button to get back to the index and select the topic again. This does not happen all the time, but sporadically and when using my phone (Android) - so far.

Koots I'm getting same thing

I have captured the full-page pop-up described above, and tried to posted it on here with my computer. Unfortunately, the 'enable editor' function does not seem to be working - it will not open. I have tried several methods to copy/paste the image onto here, but cannot paste anything, especially with the editor function not working, even on the laptop.

Koots, Did you try to create a Print screen and paste it here?


by Koots on 27 November 2019 - 16:11

Yes, I did, but the 'enable editor' button is not working from my phone or laptop, so I cannot put up a screenshot.

The full-page hijacking ads are still appearing, most notably on the android phone.    Now that 'enable editor' button is working again, I thought that I could post the screenshot from my phone or computer, but it seems that in the editor function, one can only link to an online pic, and not upload a pic from the computer or phone.
