Just a couple of quick pointers in dealing with the new forums format...

Wambli SkaWambli Ska ModeratorPosts: 26,264 Senior Member
First install Ad Guard on your devices.  Not just to deal with the annoying ads here but to stop all intrusive nonsense adds from all sites.  It's free and works like a champ.  Available in the iTunes Store, pretty sure there are Android and other versions.  

Also when looking at the forum on tablets and phones keep the device vertical.  The format works much better and it keeps text and photos etc in the correct spaces/ratios.

If you have any other helpful tips post them here.
Thanks

    How come everything I post comes out as one single long paragraph?

    Does it do the same from any device?

    For Windows users FireFox with AdBlock Plus works great.

    I've only used my phone. I don't know if it just looks that to only me, or if you are seeing multiple paragraphs. This post was three paragraphs.

    Firefox + Ad Block Plus user here, also. STILL CAN'T POST PICTURES, though.

    How do you upload videos here?  Everything else seems to work fine.

    Just copy and then paste the link on to the body of your post.

    You can’t, that I know of. You can post links to where they are hosted, but not upload direct to here from your computer.

    What Wambli said works for YouTube videos, but if the video is on YOUR computer, I have no idea. I can't even post pictures from ANYWHERE.

    I tried the copy and paste thing, and it didn't work for videos, but works fine for everything else.

    I have also been using Firefox and Ad Block on Dell computer with windows 10. No problems loading pictures.

    What cookie pop up? Windows 10, Firefox, AdBlock plus.
  • JKPJKP Senior Member Posts: 1,687 Senior Member
    To clarify, I only see it on my iPhone in Safari. I am running Adblock on the phone and don't see any external ads. 

    What i get constantly  is the forum generated cookie policy notice.

    I agree now that I've seen your screenshot.  I get the same thing here on my Mac at home.  I don't much want to read the policy every time I visit here.  I don't run AdBlock anymore, since it's a pain and my browser can block ads without it.  I can tell that the site has 3 trackers running right and provide all the particulars on these trackers, among other things...

    So if we get adguard everything will be forum bliss?

  • Wambli SkaWambli Ska Moderator Posts: 26,264 Senior Member
    It blocks a lot more than ads, including the annoying cookie pop ups and it’s completely configurable...
