    Ads Blocked

    Hi there,

    Ads are showing up as blocked with me supporting BSF a lot of the time.

    I'm not running any blocking/stuff.

    Is there an issue or am I spesh?

    If you are then so am I Only on some of the pages though most notably the one I open with - the front page! They also seem to take an age to downoad even when they will display - but that might be my laptop.

    You're right, the inline ones seem ok too, but the main one across the main index of the forum never works.

    I see the Ads blocked page for 2 or 3 seconds before the google ads appears on the Main Forum page.

    I say one thing i did notice was that the page loads and then it takes ages to pull the add in, i am on a mac at the moment and that circle thingy goes round next to the mouse

    so i think it might just be struggling to pull the adds in from google, probably an issue with google not edugeek.

    Same here - would they be coming from the ....woopra.net and 74. addresses?

    Maybe, i'm not sure what ZH has got setup as if it having problems pulling in the ads then it will show a "your blocking ads message" as thats what is behind the ads them selves.

    Oh yes I see the blocking ads message, but these addresses show in the status bar as the content is being pulled/pushed in.

    Hmm interesting. It seems to have loaded fine for me but I will take a gander at what could be causing issues.

    Cheers

    Attached image, you get the blank ad with that odd line below it and then the BSF hatred afterwards. Ads on this page load fine (both in line on the first post) and the one above the thread itself.

    FF 3.0.10 on Linux.
