NEWS: survey on 3000 US and UK consumers shows it is time for chatbot integration in customer service!read more..

Wow! What happened to the site???

I now get a big pop up advert every time I visit the forum - and the same when I make a post.
Rather annoying and I feel this may well be the final nail in the coffin for this forum as hardy anyone posts here anymore.

Can we at least get a “do not show this again” on the pop up?

*Edit* It’s worse than I thought. This thing comes up every few seconds as I navigate the site. Who in their right mind would think this is a good idea?

For the sake of chatting only…

Forums use template files. For example: A template file for
the header, the body, and the footer of each page.

So, if a popup script is included in a header template file,
each page that uses that header template file will popup,
all over the site!

Here is the tricky part.  After editing the header file to
remove the popup include line.  It will still popup,
which gets even more confusing.

There are cached pages that also have to be deleted,
and they get re-cached automatically (without the popup).

Again, this is only for the sake of conversation.
