    I have this issue too but only on the mobile site. If i 'request desktop version' on my phone it all works ok. It's not as smooth to use but it beats scrolling through two screens of ads, and it was either that or pump up my ad-blocker.

    It shows up as multiple ads in IE and Chrome, but my browser (Firefox) shows only one. I have a report into the software folks. Thanks for your patience.

    Thank you to all the Admin's for all you do!
    I imagine it can be quite a :Juggle:act.

    I was wondering about the SERT R&D link at the top of the Bag Forum - it seems to not be functioning for quite some time now. It is labeled "old".

    Specifically the link directs to an empty page that says...
    "There are no threads to display".

    Just a heads up - thanks you guys!

    So, the software guys and I cannot replicate what many are seeing. They would like to know what browser version and operating system folks are using when they see the multiple ads. They have tried it on MacOS and Windows and not seeing the multiple ads. Thank you.

    Thanks for letting us know. I'll take a look at it.

    I notice the multiple ads banner oddity with mobile safari - iPhone 7+ iOS

    It's visible when is viewing in portrait...

    But looks "ALMOST" normal while in landscape mode with only one layer of ad banner on top. That's interesting...

    EDIT: In Landscape view the EDCF Logo is off center to the left of the ad banner and very small.

    iOS Safari Viewing in landscape

    Notice viewing in Landscape the "EDC Forum Logo" is to the left of the ad banner and dramatically reduced in size.

    Yep, IPhone IOS and post #10 is what I see. It's the only thing I have to use because my PC isn't working. You have to scroll way down every time you load a page.

    Edited my above post to include both Portrait and Landscape views of the ad banners while using iOS.

    Thanks,

    I have found if I switch to the "Scratch -- EDCF" theme I did not have the advertisement banner issue. So it seems the "EDC - Custom Theme" style sheet has an issue. Just for your information. I am using Chrome 59, Win 8.1.

    Unfortunately I'm using the "Scratch -- EDCF" and having the viewing problems.

    We'll see if the mentioned update helps.

    Thanks,
