    Unhappy too many pop up ads

    Sorry but if you are going to have a popup on every page, pop up on post preview, pop up on advanced, pop up on anything I do here, its going to make me not want to visit any more.

    I understand ads but in your face ones are rude IMO and I stay away from those sites as much as possible.

    Knotty,
    I've had no problem with pop ups on my end. Over on MTF I did get a pop up for Amazon Prime yesterday & today. Clicked on the screen next to the ad & it went away & no further issues. Hopefully the Mods can help you out.

    Yeah I got the Amazon pop-up today too. The sale will be over shortly. In the meantime use a robust pop-up blocker and that'll cut down on all kinds of pop-ups.

    The biggest problem I have with pop ups is they chew up data and slow down page load speeds. So I use Adgaurd.

    Today I began getting pop ups for Amazon Prime also. As others have stated clicking on the background around the pop up clears it but it is still an annoyance.

    I know they did the Prime popup on a bunch of sites on Prime Day. Knotty if you are still seeing a bunch of popups it likely isn't from the web site. You may want to scan with your antivirus or malwarebytes.
