I tried putting both url of the forum and of the popup to the "Website" field but it doesn't work.

Hmm, try putting "http://drycounty.com" in Website field.

Just use the uBlock origin extension in your browser. Has done the trick for me.

I can't even access via Chrome. I forgot to activate the automatic login and now every time I try to access, I get a virus alert and my antivirus software blocks the site before I can navigate. It just freezes

I paid for the subscription (was going to do it anyway, but now it really feels like blackmailing) because it's such a hassle getting a hundred million ads and on top of that the security warnings, but I still get the virus alert on Chrome. Firefox works fine.

Please do something. Ads I understand. Malware on the other hand :bad-word:

Thank you for going for Ad-Free subscription!
Good point about automatic login - now the pop ads should not display to non-registered members on forum index page (testing this part to see the effect - UPDATE: effect not acceptable, removed...) and on login/register page, this should enable a paid member to login without ads popping up.

There is not much control over specific ads being displayed by certain ad network. As mentioned above, problematic ads should be reported here: https://www.popads.net/report-abuse.html . Or make a screenshot and post if here.

Links in posts are annoying, mobile browsing is useless. I keep getting redirected to some ad site no matter what I click. This is not how you run a site. Put some normal ads on the site.

I get the attached warning from my antivirus when i try to browse the site, and the popunder reporting doesn't work, no matter what you select, it just says not recognised popunder!

I got the same alert on Chrome for a week or so and then it stopped popping. I didn't do anything...

Did you install a new/different adblocker recently? I was told on other board that might be the reason

I was trying to do some reading on the site before joining and I was told there was a virus on my Mac which there isn't?

I haven't installed any new security, it's the same antivirus that I've had for a while that flags up the malware and locks the site down, on both Chrome & avast safe browser. I not had a problem till the last week or so, but now I can only access the site via another browser, which is annoying, I don't mind the popups as I can close them, but malware locking up the site is another matter, can you please sort that out, as altho I could pay to use the site, It wouldn't solve the problem, as the malware registers as soon as I browse onto the site, locking it up, so I can not login, so paying would mean I have to have a browser just for here!

That's probably just an ad. Is it promoting software such as MacKeeper?
