Avant Ad Blocker 11.7 build 31

Post by tenchgirl » Fri May 29, 2009 1:01 pm

Running Vista / IE 8 / Avant 11.7 build 31

After the new upgrade done this am one of my forums craftbubble.com will not let me type in the reply area or start a new thread on the forums there if the ad blocker & block unwanted pop up pages is checked under tools.

All other sites i use are working as normal.

The only way I can type in the reply box or start a new thread is to turn the ad blocker & unwanted pop up pages off. This is very annoying. I have put the site in the exception list and the same thing happens the only way i can type is to make sure both are unchecked.

Please advise.

Further to my last post on this subject (see above), 6 months later i am still having the same problem as above but am now running version 11.7 build 36.

I am having to make sure my pop up and ad blocker is turned off before i can type any reply on my craftbubble forum.

As no one in the know responded to my last post on this subject 6 months ago, is it possible that someone could be forthcoming with some information or help please, as frankly im getting sick of Avant and its various issues each time a new release comes up, to the point where i am seriously thinking of dumping it all together after 5 years+ of use.

With the ad blocker on, the page gets down to 2 items still waiting to load up and then just sits there, i can see everything but cannot type a word in reply, yet turning ad blocker off and it works fine. I dont like having no ad blocker on, I manage to get enough rubbish on my pc without being bombarded with 1000's of ads clogging things up even more.

Any ideas please?

I just registered with craftbubble.com and it looks like the site does not function correctly unless the ads are loaded - scripts won't run and errors occur preventing the page from loading correctly.

I had to put the following two rules into the AD blocker exception list to make it work:

Code: Select all

Thank you Kudos, I have added your 2 rules to mine and it works with ad blocker on, the only trouble now is those bloody ads show up, still I can now keep ad blocker on so when i visit other sites I can be free of ads. I will contact their admin and ask them to get it sorted.

The only other problem i have is when replying to posts i cant seam to use any of their smilies within the reply box, when i click one the page jumps slightly upwards but no smilie shows, I cant work out what that means as i dont have any smilie problems on other forums, ah well back to trying to work it out, if anyones got any tips on that it would be welcome.

Thanks anyway Kudos.

Yes - please do contact them to resolve it.

As for the smiley problem, well I just tested and it's doing the same with IE7 / IE8 too - so there is nothing we can do apart from contacting them about that too.

All works fine with Orca and FF though! (Have you tried Orca yet?)

Actually no, Ive been thinking about giving it a try though, can you still move the tabs to the bottom like on avant? cos thats what i really like about avant not being a technical geek. & would your online storage bookmarks work in orca and do you need to DL FF first to install it?
