Danger from ads on the board!

Post by sister on Sun Aug 14, 2011 7:20 am

We are using a free forum, and the company that provides it to us puts ads in the area indicated below. These ads often match your actions on the forum: Click on "Messages" and an ad will appear that says "You have 1 message!" I don't like advertising that tricks you into clicking and then starts downloading to your computer; if you don't like it either, ignore everything that happens in the area I've marked with a red box below. No matter what it says in that area, it is an ad--and it is not from Psychic Hatchway!

See the orange row of buttons (Home Calendar FAQ Search, etc.) below the forum angel? THOSE ARE THE ONLY BUTTONS YOU NEED TO NAVIGATE THE FORUM. Sorry for shouting. Very Happy



Forumotion: Thank you for letting us use your free forum software. If you start using honest ads that are not trying to trick people, I will look at them. Just a thought.

I saw that today, too and instead clicked my messages and it said I had none.

I've been tricked before and got a bug on my computer!

That's why if you aren't sure of something it's always a good idea to just ask someone. There's no harm in asking questions I say.
thanks
