I don't have this problem, but have brought it to the administrators attention above.

Please provide more details if possible. Browser(s), operating system(s), etc. The more information you can provide will help the administrators to narrow their troubleshooting efforts.

I have the same problem over the last month or so. Ever time I log in and within 30 seconds of viewing. I know better than to hit the ďcloseĒ X so I delete the web address for the pop up ad from the browser. It typically pops up another 2 or three times and finally goes away. Very annoying and itís limiting the amount of time Iím willing to visit the Lotustalk site.

Iím using an iPad Pro.

@XHILR8N! , @Falsey & @Certified Lotus - You most likely have malware on your device. Start by clearing your browser cache, close the browser and restart your device. If it’s a mobile device, that’s likely all it will take.

If the above doesn’t fix the problem on your desktop or laptop, you may need to remove installed malware using a free program like Malwarebytes Antimalware. Read more about that here.

Malwarebytes FREE FTW. If you don't have this, get it, and use it.

I've had the same pop-up problem across different iPad/iPhones using Safari and tried a number of fixes (cache clearing, etc.). Nothing seemed to work for any length of time and the pop-ups would always return eventually. Switching my mobile browser to Chrome was the only thing I found to permanently eliminate the pop-ups.

And I am seeing it rarely on any site other this one. Last evening it was like every 30 seconds. I was only able to construct that first post a word at a time.

I don't get any pop ups. Using Chrome with Adblock Plus. Also have the "classic" forum skin set.

There is a problem when you have to add malware to an iOS device. My iPad struggles on this site.

Put in a VPN (virtual private network) called Phone Guardian that seems to be working so far. Anyone see a disadvantage to this?
