Ads causing multiple pop ups
« on: August 10, 2018, 12:39:13 pm »
The ads system is causing multiple pages to pop up when trying to interact with the site on https://comeallwithin.createaforum.com/
Some of them then cause the browsers to start warning of dodgy and tricky sites.



How do I know it's the ads? Because the problem goes away when an ad blocker is used. They don't look like the "normal" ads for 4 things on ebay or whatever.


Has someone hacked your ad stream or something?

No, testing out new ads. Replied to your email. Didn't releaize the banners had popups. Disabled that option in settings may take a while to take affect.

I'm getting complaints from users about these ads too. In particular, those who are using Mac's, these Ads/popups(?) are downloading hundreds of files. These ads seem to be some form of malware.

Quick workaround for now buy ad free credits or an ad free plan. Otherwise have to wait for the new ads to load in.
