Hello, I can't go on the main page on my Nexus 5 or 7 at the moment because of endless pop ups, redirects and probably malware and other crap.

Please fix this.

Regards,

Andy

How do we know you haven't been looking at porn and it has now affected your system?

Don't worry, it's full of shite anyway. Like the latest "news" on WM30 where it lists every possible combination of current WWE superstars as "discussed" matches for the event. Basically fantasy booking bullshit that doesn't deserve to be reported on the site or repeated by me or anyone else. Farcical. You're better off.

I know it's full of crap articles, I go for the reviews and SD spoilers. But it's the only website it happens on so not porn etc. Probably

I don't know what it does on an Android, but on iPhone it triggers my App Store to open and try to get me to download something. Luckily with Apple that's about all it can do as I'd have to actually manually hit Install, but it's still annoying as it's actually directing me away from Safari and will often happen several times as I'm reading a longer article.

Yup, same on Android.

I only have code for regular banner ads on the site, but yeh I've heard of this a bunch of times. Been trying to track it down but it's proven to be near impossible. Usually the networks catch it fairly quickly, but then another one pops up soon thereafter.

Is it still happening?

Looks fine to me, it used to plague my phone big time, but so far so good :)

Sorry, Rajah, I love the main site and forums on my computer, but when I'm taking a poop I go to a rival site for dirt sheets on my phone.

Don't worry, I use the forums while I poop too.

It's now even worse. Literally unusable on a phone now.

Someone let me know when it's fixed because I won't be on the site again until it is. Cheers.

It's fine now mate.

I bought an Android phone just to test (just kidding, I needed a new phone) and I haven't seen one of these re-directs. Thus, I am concluding this is a problem on your end.

Andy
February 16th, 2014, 9:10 PM
Don't see why it would be. I have no problems on any other sites, I have antivirus installed, but it happens on both my android devices :dunno:

Kev

My Android phone was doing it, but that seems to be fine over the last week or so... on my iPad however it keeps asking me to install one of those mytholgical-genre games when I navigate from page to page, I can take a screenshot next time if you like mate.

Serious question. Are you using the incognito page? I was Messing about with it the other day and every wrestling site I went to gave me pop up ads. When i went under my normal Internet browser it was fine.

Are you using the installed browser or something different?

Andy
February 17th, 2014, 2:28 PM
My usual browser is Dolphin but it does it on Chrome too. Not in incognito mode.

virmicious
February 17th, 2014, 4:35 PM
What about the browser that comes preloaded?

I have tried some of the other browsers and never really liked them.

When I get a few I will download dolphin and chrome see if I get anything.

Just downloaded both. I have ads on the side but they are the same ads I typically have.

One was about a 5k sponsor run and the other was for Bic pens :lol: but I have had them for dr. Who screw driver and lightsabers. i am guessing those ads are pulling in my history :shifty: which is why i want to know where the Bic ens came from

No pop ups though

Today on Chrome on my HTC One I got a bucket load of pop ups. Fyi

Rajah
February 20th, 2014, 6:51 PM
What country do you guys live in? The ads are almost always geo-targeted which would explain why some people get them and some don't. Maybe they don't like Canadians. :(

I live in the United States and I occasionally get them browsing the forums and main page on my android phone.

Rajah
February 20th, 2014, 7:36 PM
Well that's a problem right there because there shouldn't be any ads on the forum.

Andy
February 20th, 2014, 8:38 PM
I'm on Android in the UK and it either opens my app store to try and download some game or gives me pop ups about scanning my device or something. Every time.

February 20th, 2014, 9:56 PM
That's what I get.

On my S4 and my Nexus 7 I never get popups, I do get "specific ads" - i.e. I've been buying digital radio on Amazon, so now I get 3 almost identical amazon ads. I just skip the main page from my phone now anyway, it's not very mobile friendly anyway.

Andy
February 25th, 2014, 2:16 PM
Still happening.

I loaded the main page and 9 pop ups were blocked by Adblock Plus. 9? Sounds kind of ridiculous.

Just had a ad on the front page redirect me to a fake flash player site (flashs-player.com) and automatically start downloading a file.

Edit - another there redirected to a fake Chrome updater on the Seth Rollins article. I'm in incognito mode so it shouldn't be some cookies I have.

Hero!

Every time i go to the main page on my phone, I get redirected to the App Store. Thanks, Rajah!
