Do you have a firewall running? That was my problem, as soon as I turn the firewall off I can see all the links ..R..

disable firewall?? nuts to that

I cannot understand why the powers to be had to monkey with something that worked..

In this day-n-age it is lunacy to drop your firewall..ever!!

I hope the sponsors are satisfied with the invisable act they are paying for.

We haven't changed anything.

When did this problem start? Is it affecting all ads or just the "sponsors" list?

Help me understand the problem a bit better so I can direct our efforts. There doesn't seem to be anything we are doing that should make a firewall nervous.

Jim,
I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem of this thread but I did have one problem and currently have a problem attributable to my firewall.
First one was where some threads had user posted pics being blocked. This was when I set McAfee firewall to 'block ads'.
Second one is not solved but behavior is the same. Some threads do not show the post number in the upper right of the post. Some do OK.

Jim, With the firewall on, there is nothing showing on the sponsers page. Ads? what ads? I dont get any pop-up ads if thats what your talking about. I will copy the sponsers page so you can see what I see, Hope this helps some ...R....

RandyK1,

Is your firewall set to block ads?

Jim, I just checked my firewall, Yes it is set to block ads. If someone wants to get the ads thay should be able to "uncheck" block ads, I would think....R... p.s. I will not run my p.c. with-out the firewall on, not these days, for the last few weeks I have been getting about 8-10 trojan attacks a day If we could turn these hackers on to R/C, mabey thay would not have so much time on there hands

Well, that resolves your problem RandyK1, but I don't think it must be the same issue as Fred and ahab are having. They seem to indicate that they want to see the ads but aren't able to.

So I'd like to hear more about that problem so I can fix it too.

May I suggest posting the suspect HTML code as a text file? Maybe hacking at it will tell us something.

I suspect that the html isn't the problem. What is probably happening is that the javascript we are using is being blocked by the firewall at the user's machine.

I'll have the page rewritten to work around the problem, but at this time the obvious work-around is to stop configuring your firewall to block ads, if it is so configured.

I think that most firewalls install with the ad blocking "on" by defalt. Turning it off is as easy as unchecking the "block ads" box...R...
