Each thread is filled with ads for things like cars. What changed? How do I make it go away?

Not on my end. Something has managed to sneak into your browsers, I suspect. Clear the cookies and history for the last couple of days.

I usually pay to have the ads removed however there is a problem with the payment process right now.

The only ads I see using Edge is the one under the banner at the top.

Edge has become better at blocking stuff. But I'm sure not switching to it.

I am using Edge CBob. The ads are at the top, at the bottom and in between some of the posts of this thread. I could probably tolerate the flat statement ones but the "flashing" variety are not so easy to overlook.

I use three browsers depending on what I need to do. Currently using Firefox and the ads are still there. Firefox has been as slow as molasses to load for more than six months.
So, Edge and Firefox have the ads using iLox. Now I'm going to switch to Telmex and see what happens with both..............

And that doesn't make any difference. Over to CBob. I've got other things to do.

Using Brave as a browser, there are no ads except for the ones intended to be here.

I see the icon for this site's bookmark changed to a Google "G" about two days ago. That means that a server somewhere is bypassing Bob's security software.

I will not change my browser and the specific benefits it provides just to block ads. And many ad blockers are notorious for overstepping. Once Bob has a chance to pay the service again, all will be well.

It's going to take a few days to get sorted. The problem is this forum only accepts payment via PayPal and Paypal has cancelled my Canadian account as they discovered I no longer live in Canada. That means I have to start a Mexican PayPal account which requires a Mexican credit card which I currently don't have. I'm going to get one today or tomorrow.

OK, I was able to use my BBVA debit card to get a Mexican PayPal account. I have gotten rid of the ads. Now I just need to fix the domain name.

This attitude makes no sense. And yet many US banks now have the same policy. I'm not sure from where the short-sightedness has arisen. Banking is banking. The most successful institutions are global.

Anyway, glad you nipped it in the bud. The ads are gone for me. And this gives me the opportunity to say THANKS for continuing to support your Webboard project. A great resource and a better alternative.

All is back to normal for me too. CBob, I am sure I am not alone when I say that you do not have to foot the bill alone to keep this forum up and running. I will contribute.

I just can't figure out how to get it redirected to my domain Insidelakeside. I may need your help.

Not something I have had to deal with directly, but I know my own Provider offers a number of tools to do so. I except yours does, too. But let me know.

I created a CNAME record with my domain name provider for lakechapalainfo.forumotion.net but forumotion keeps giving me an error that a CNAME hasn't been created when I try to link it to Insidelakeside.com. It could be that it takes a while to create the record?

Yeah, the call it propogation... has to spread through various servers. Same thing when you add/change/update an email with a Provider that you are paying.

I see the ads now when I am forced to log in, which I presume everyone will have to do, and then they are gone. I don't understand this LogIn window, though, that appeared many months ago that moves the LogIn button around like some kind of video game. Is this a security measure of which you are aware, to prevent bots? Annoying, if not.

Probably. I only pay to remove ads for members. If you're not logged in you will see the ads.
