Annoying popups appear constantly on this forum with iPad. Please fix!

Hi,

I really appreciate this forum but when reading on my iPad a popup to get your iPad app AND another popup for the Cruisers Daily appears EVERY TIME I go to another page. That means that if I visit 10 pages on this forum then there 20 popups to deal with. (10 pages visited X 2 popups per page change = 20 popups!)

I have built and own many websites and normally you can set popups to appear only once per session. Can you guys do that for both of those popups PLEASE?

If this isn't the right place to post this then can someone please tell me where I should post this?

Thank you very much.

Steve

Is there any update on this. It's happening to me as well, I'm not using an iPad. It's incredibly annoying.

I'm still seeing 2 popups per page on my iPad (the first popup asks me if I want the iPad app). I don't see any popups when I'm using my computer though (Macbook Pro).

What device are you using when you see the popups? Are you logged in or not?

I'm logged in and on my laptop. I had to click on it again to get rid of it again just to post a reply on this thread.
A Royal PITA.

We are working with Technical support on this as hard as we can. Its a problem out of our hands and reliant on those behind the scenes.

It is affecting us too.

Weavis -
We should start a new thread to be titled:
"Should we carry guns behind the scenes?"
LOL.

LOL.
First the mods say nothing. Then the mods say nothing at all

Rest assured we are doing EVERYTHING WE CAN to expedite this hiccup.

So, is the Cruisers Daily thing at least legit, not some kind of phishing scam?

Yes it is. I signed up, and the popups went away. However, it is annoying as hell to many members, and we as mods are feverishly working behind the scenes to get this resolved.

Bear with us.... we are frustrated also.
