Unless your ISP or something is blocking the burstnet.com site to load the ads from. Can you give us a screenshot of the main LQ page to take a look at it.... Cause your only going to see ads at the top of each forum page under the main logo and main links at the top of each page.

uh... that's right... I thought about real banners (the top page ones, with a lot of collors, thisone is just white with a few words.) Anyway, the ads are pop-ups in general and the banner-ads are those ugly things that take 90% of your screen... that is a little advertising piece on a non-profit web page...so it isn't much and it does not bother... If you want people to want to block them you need to set up bigger and uglyer banners...

Yeah this site prohibits pop-up ads, so if you ever get one cause they sneak them past Jeremy every so often, get the description of the ad and report it so Jeremy can remove it.

What browser/OS do you use?
Usually I use Konqeror with RH8, but sometimes Mozilla, and sometimes Lynx. I don't use privoxy or anything like that. I will post a screenshot in a few minutes...

Ok, here is the main page:

The LQ homepage does not have a banner ad at the top. The second page however should. Can you copy/paste a view source and email it to me? Do you have JavaScript enabled or disabled? Thanks.

bulliver,
What version of Konq are you using? I just downloaded 2.2.2 and I am seeing the ads. For those of you who use konq - do you see ads? Thanks.

Hmmm... no ads on mine with Konq 3.0.3 using KDE 3.0.3 on SuSE 8.1.

I can see them in Netscape/Mozilla.

I just tried it with Konqueror 3.01 / KDE 3.01
java and javascript enabled, and it works, I think.

On the home page I see the add in the right column

The forums page I find this in the source code, no add displayed, no errors

<!-- BEGIN RICH-MEDIA BURST! CODE -->
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
ShowBurstAd('ad7954a','468','60');
// --></script>
<noscript><a href="http://www.burstnet.com/ads/ad7954a-map.cgi/ns" target="_top"><img src="http://www.burstnet.com/cgi-bin/ads/ad7954a.cgi/ns" width="468" height="60" border="0" alt="Click Here"></a>
</noscript>
<!-- END BURST CODE -->



The same thing in Mozilla 1.3a

New info:

The space for the add is there, but no add

a few page refreshes will display the add in either browser, but sometimes even that does not work.

I tried with Mozilla 1.0.1 on RH 7.3

It does not want to display the add, in the source code it's there.

I can see "transfering data from www.burstnet.com" yet it shows nothing.


It seems that when burstnet cycles the add it works, I think the problem is on their end.

Nope...

I just checked with lynx, there was no banner (obviously) but there was a link that said "click here", when I clicked it I got: "There was an error processing your click-thru. We apologize for the inconvenience."
