How the blue blistering fuck do I go about dismissing the floating Benenden ads when, as so often, they obscure a forum post?

Annoying things, I hope they paid treble for the irritation to users.

Can you post a screenshot of the problem pse?

Example screengrab attached - you'll see the floating ad overlaps the forum page. Have had this with the ad in the middle of the page, completely blocking a series of posts.

Don't know if it will help the dignostics but no problem on firefox or google chrome

I sympathise. Since I bought this Laptop there's a big sticker on my screen advertising Windows Vista. No amount of trying gets rid of it and perhaps the
site could just take it off here please. It's so annoying. Thanks. 8O

Ahh, all is now clear. I'm afraid ARRSE isn't compatible with IE 8 ......

Shall I change to Explorer 7 now then, boss?

Ah well, thanks for looking. The front page behaves itself if you invoke compatibility view. That's something, at least.

Full compatibility with IE8 is definitely on the to-do list but in the meantime ..... I can't think of a good reason not to use Firefox?
 
#12
I feel obliged to give IE8 an airing as part of my gig on the Windows 7 Beta programme.

The ads never seem to bother me. I have been a member of Benenden for about 8 years and can recommend anyone about to leave the Service to join it.

I've had the same problem with banner ads obscuring the last post on a page too. I'm still using IE7 though, so it's not purely an IE8 glitch.

's Okay everybody. Methylated spirits and cotton wool. Works a treat. Please do not adjust your Site, I say again....

Not 100% that what I've seen was Benenden, and I'm definitely not using IE (chrome or occasional Firefox3).

I'll keep an eye peeled and get screengrab and page source if i see it again
