    opening links

    Hi - Lately I can't seem to open any external links that are posted on the forum (e.g. someone posts a link in their post). I checked other forums and everything seems to work fine.

    Even when I "copy link address" and paste it it actually redirects me back to the same page in the thread.

    How does the link I posted work for you? Can you give me another example thread where the link doesn't work for you?

    None of the outside links work for me - even if I post it:
    http://www.bbc.com/

    I recently started using kaspersky so maybe that's the issue?

    That could me it, kaspersky is hyper-sensitive

    Some of the new video ads are very disruptive to forum participation, even when logged in. In the Safari web browser, the video ads (which load automatically) take keyboard focus away from the message input boxes. As a result you can't write any messages. This will force people to use more ad blocking software, which will reduce the forum's revenue.

    Next time it happens, can you take a screenshot and grab the ad's URL and we'll get it reported.
