Ads on mobile becoming too intrusive.

The ads on the mobile site are becoming too intrusive. Some ads take over the whole page. Others take over the sides or bottom. The bigger problem with this is that they seem to break the coding and screw the page up as they load and after they close. I find it hard to scroll to the post I want now because these ads are causing the page to jump all over the place and break. Sometimes the ads break the page so much that I can’t type anything.

If it helps I’m on iOS 13.2.3 on iPhone 8.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 with no issues with the ads.

I’m getting it too - it takes over the page and you need to find a way to scroll past it but there’s nowhere to “grab” the page. I don’t think screen shots would pictures would explain it accurately.

can you provide any details on what the ad is about?
I haven't paid too much attention to the content. Some of them have an animated border take over the screen, like one filled the screen with pineapples. Other ads seem to not scroll with the page, so when you try to scroll past them, the page gets all wonky especially if it places them in between posts.

I just got one for Seattle on the Chit Chat forum at 3:30 EST. It’s one where it occupies the whole and then becomes longer as you scroll. The problem is that it then obscured the top of the page including the navigation tree, Mark All Posts Read and several rows of posts. I tried reporting it but the form isn’t working for me on iOS 133 Public Beta...

I don’t think it’s an iOS problem since I’m not having it elsewhere. I think these ads are overly complex and breaking the code of the forums.

I’m not saying the ads are an iOS problem, but the form @wdwmagic has provided in the past to report bad ads. You’re also nicer than me thinking it’s just a big of the ads and not deliberate.

Agreed, I can barely scroll through and read. Clorox ads, Home Depot, they take up the whole sides of the screen and pause. :-/

Yes, the Clorox ones are big culprits. These take over the whole screen, pause your scrolling and reset it, and sometimes break the page so you can't click any links or type without reloading.

The other problematic ads seem to be on a different "layer" than the thread. As you scroll down, the ad appears but does not scroll with the page. It's hard to explain, but these also break the threads. Neither of these type of ads appear on the desktop site. If needed I can try to grab a screen capture.

So far, not had any problems today but haven’t been on that long.

ETA- spoke too soon- Mac & Cheese Frozen ad just stalled but not as bad just for a few seconds.
