Default Page doesn't load.

I don't know if it's just my machine, or what. When I click on a thread that I want to see, an ad will appear in the banner, at the top, and the page I want will appear right below that except when the "Courtyard by Marriot" ad comes up in the rotation. The Courtyard banner comes up, and that's it. Nothing else happens. The page I clicked on doesn't appear; only the Marriot ad. At least so far, this has not happened with any of the other ads.

Me too, even on my super fast work computer it does the same. I have to click back and forth a couple times for it to work. I hope we can fix this.

For whatever reason I have not seen a single ad in the forum. I don't know why, but i'm sure not complaining!

wow I wish I could say the same.
These adds do seem to be slowing things down a lot.
Adblock plus is a great addon, but does not work with all adds.

Default Re: Technical difficulties

No problems here w/ advertisements, but I'm experiencing persistent slow page loads when moving from various forums. So much so that I've needed to exit and relaunch, at times needing to exit/relaunch several times.

Seems to be isolated to this site; I've many other windows/sites open without this problem.

No problem with pop-up ads, though.

Those Marriott ads prevent me from viewing when clicking & moving to the 'NEW POST' tab.
Hope it can be rectified... ~Cheryl

Default Re: Page doesn't load.

OK heres how you disable the adds go to tools/internetoptions/security/ apply the maximum highest security level for this zone

so in other words slide the little bar all the way to the top this will apply the maximum security and not allow the down loading of any activeX script
Just know that if you go to sites that use flash player to display content you will have to add that site to your trusted site list in order to get the activX controls to work

When the page don't load I just refresh it until it works. Persistance pays off :^) Never know if all of us are overloading a server? & pop-ups no problem here..

Now the same thing is happening with an ad from Sterling- a Kohler Company. The ad has a picture of a toilet on it.
