It’s back and it’s ruining DawgNation for me. It will take 15-20 times of closing it just to view one post. If I can’t get this fixed I’ll have to quit getting on here, I can’t take it.

    Have you tried the app? Navigation was a little frustrating but they have updated it. I know your frustration though.

    It was doing it Friday for me.

    These ads have ruined this page. There has got to be a better fix

    It was driving me nuts too...I’m using safari browser on iPhone. I downloaded Ad-Block plus app/browser and enabled it for safari...haven’t seen one of those awful fb ads since! Hope it helps.

    On my phone the app redirects you to the website. So it doesn’t help at all. Didn’t used to be that way.

    These ads are the reason why I've cut way back on my visits to this site over the past few weeks. #ridiculous.

    I turned to the Norton Ad Block app.

    Free and Simple and it works.

    Others have had luck with other apps as well.

    I tried the ad block...still didn’t work for me. It was fixed for a couple weeks but now it’s back to being awful

    I can only get on here through my laptop. On mobile, its facebook spam central.

    I can only speak of Norton mentioned a few posts above.

    Once downloaded, you need to delete website history and data or the android equivalent of the iphone.

    Android phone - Never had this problem.

    Same here. I can’t be on this site now because it constantly pops up. It’s only on the DawgNation site. Too bad, because I really enjoy being here, but something is infected with DN server.

    It’s killing my phone . I want to read post but can’t . I’ve stayed away for a few weeks now but the konsterbunder the bed is back and I’m past agrivated.

  • bobbypiperbobbypiper Posts: 146 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Google pixel and use Google browser and have never seen an ad.

  • dawfanfromalabamdawfanfromalabam Posts: 1,034 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Ad Block Plus seems to be working on my iPhone.

  • TeddyTeddy Posts: 6,981 mod

    I agree ad blockers are the way to go, but Dawgnation needs to fix/terminate their 3rd party ad vendor who serves these ads, or realize their site has been hacked/has a virus. Either way, a competent web team should be able to fix this. It’s getting old, and ridiculous it’s still going on. It’s happening to me now, but if I close out and come back 15 tries later I can read one post/page. This is my first post since before the Kentucky game because of this spam ad, and it took forever just to get to this point just to make this one comment.

  • josh31533josh31533 Posts: 186 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Maybe the mods have listened to the feedback? Personally I haven’t had one add pop up in past couple of days. I’m using an iPhone without any type of pop up blocker other than in settings.
