The animation in this ad seems to be one of the problems:




I haven’t seen it run in the last few hours. It does not crash IE (not 7 or 8 anyway), it just seems to get locked into a loop and seems to be looking for a file it can’t find. At the bottom of my screen, I see different messages flashing, “waiting for ……….”, “contacting ………”

If I am quick enough, I can click the mouse on the red X stop button in IE, the ad will stop and then everything is fine. If I don’t click on stop quickly enough, the ad causes IE to be so busy it ignores me clicking the stop button. Then I have to hold down the escape key on the keyboard to make it stop.

I have to hit stop, by the clicking the stop button with the mouse or holding down the escape key on every new page the ad is running on.


The other problem is just the default field width setting. The page is too wide to display on a normal width screen.

That's the campaign I had them looking at - newest one that went site-wide.

Thanks for the detail.

All the ads in that campaign have been pulled from the forum - please let me know if you see them again, or have any other problems related to that or similar ad script.

Now, on to the display issue...

I'm sure being late and tired has something to do with the misprint,
It's probably that I don't really care much either.

Secondly, the SOFTWARE FRAME for Jelsoft is over-writable.
We got the instructions from Jelsoft when we had a virus that got into the board files,
And once the virus was eliminated, Jelsoft support simply had us over-write the install files.

All archived information and files were saved, and the forum software was returned to factory settings.

Since then we have done it several times when things got messed up, and it's worked every time on every version of the Jelsoft product we use...

It's also worked for everyone on the Jelsoft discussion groups I frequent when I need answers...
I ask the Jelsoft geeks on the bbs dedicated to Jelsoft admins...

Third.
I don't know if reloading the software will fix any of the problems or not.
For 30 or 40 minutes of time and NO SKILL LEVEL involved, it might be worth a try...

And which 'THIS' were you referring to?
The advertisements running the posts off the page?

The script overloads?

The Board Admin loading the wrong version of animated advertisements?

The scrip problems that crash IE, and slow Mozella based browsers to a crawl?

Which one of those 'Issues' were you referring to as 'THIS'?

You need to be a little more precise when crapping on ideas that might help...
Well ya know Captain... It's your thread but you need a new direction!

A useless attack on me isn't helping and if you check closer... Taz is being much more constructive than you are.

Just dropped in to see what condition your condition was in...

BTW: Still can't post from IE6 but it is different.

Y’all just wanna leave me out of your squabbles.

Maybe you should have paraphrased from his Every Time Two Fools Collide lyrics instead.

Looking MUCH better, and I don't have a dozen notices from the script blocker every minute!

Looks like things are getting better!

Well, actually I'm the WO-man, but yeah, I think I got that one.

Can't believe how easy, IN MY FACE the answer was. I swear the last two months I haven't had same rights - how did I miss that field every time I went in to the control panel?!

Anyway, hopefully we're good to go for now. Good traffic on here lately, uppers are happy.

Now I can look around and find something FUN to talk about - like Readers Rides, or where people are going this summer...
