Ad at Top of Page Blocking Login Screen!
- Breadcrumbs Apr 9, 2011 04:03 PM
I guess my 15 days were up so I was prompted to "Login". Fine. Or so I thought, except for the fact that every time I clicked on the "Login" button, the rectangular banner ad (iTravel 2000 in my case) popped up and blocked the login box. I tried connecting to Chowhound via the home page, via Chow to no avail.
I ended up having to shut down my Mac, re-start and only then was I successful. I'm not even sure if that did the trick or, if it was the fact that the page hadn't finished loading completely when I clicked "Login" that actually saved me.
Very, very annoying.
I couldn't even post that I was having a problem since I wasn't logged in.
I'll be interested to see if anyone else has the same issue.
i have it on my mac menu bar, logged in, but if the cookies expire as they said, you will still have to log in.
Next to or above every ad on the site, there's the words 'ad info' in little grey text. If you have difficulties with ads blocking content, please hit the 'ad info' link and mark "There was something wrong with the way the ad appeared on the page". That sends information directly to our ad services team, and provides the info on the specific ad / unit that's causing the problem. It's hard for us to track down ad issues from reports on the boards, but if you use the 'ad info' link, it gets all the information where it needs to go.
If it's an ongoing, pervasive problem, you can report it here, as well, but the method described above is more likely to get results.
