Is it just me, or do others have problems with the ads at the top of page appearing lower than they should be, hence blocking-off  'Forum', 'What to do now'..etc. 

It doesn't happen all the time, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to post this.

I've had the same problem and thought it was just my computer playing silly devils. I guess it's a glitch their end.

It might also be to do with the size of text that you are using - if you increase the size of the text, it can make things misalign.

By the way, you can get rid of the adverts with Adblocker.

Many thanks both....my default text size is 100%. and if that was the reason I would think it would be present all the time.

Adblocker?

If your text is 100% them things should line up properly, so it's probably a glitch.

Adblocker is a program that you can download which removes the adverts from your page if you find them annoying.

Cheers, Alina!

Another glitch...for my previous message I couldn't get get my cursor to flash ouside of the quote box for toffee (hence all in one message)....they do misbehave sometimes!

@David K, I am experiencing exactly same issues as you, including no cursor outside quote boxes

I think this is a reflection of back office work going on with site maintenance. I have those probs intermittently on PC, but not on iPad. But on iPad, don't have full functionality re edit messaging, posting smileys/ pictures/ links to other websites. Still think it's a great site though.

Thanks folks...it's reassuring to know that it isn't just me.

I would agree, figrat...it is a great site and so much more advanced than the old boards.

It just happened to me when I came onto the forum a minute ago. It's happened a few times before - I never do anything differently - so decided it must be a hitch in the program.

There's some great software out there to block out adverts, Ad muncher is great!

Thanks HollieHock. Do these ad blocker programs do other sneaky things to ones computer? I always worry about importing the PC equivalent of japanese knotweed!!

Hi FloBear,

Only just seen your post. I've not had any problems with it at all.In fact I wouldn't be without it. It even blocks TV ads when watching programmes on a player.

It does it's job quietly in the background, when I use other laptops without  it, it's then I notice the difference

Yes, threads fly past at a great rate of knots, don't they?

Thanks, Hollie-Hock  for taking the trouble to reply, I'll give it a go.
