The Zombie advert is now on the home page!  The Don't Be Scared One.  And that has caused it!   Flipping heck!   |(. I don't think my eyes can take this!

RE: iPad display problem

I did a quick check just now...

...all ok.

In fact I don't ever remember a problem with ads overrunning any WHF? page on any of my iPhones.

Repeated refreshes get me the LG ad (above), a JBL ad, a Naim ad, a Samsung Smart TV ad and a Sony Bravia ad.

They are all contained within a rectangle at the top (with the red WHF banner bordering it).

No pop-ups (they are blocked in settings anyway) and no other nasties.

I have also deleted all cookies and history and powered off/on and tried without being logged on. Still fine.

I guess this really does only affect iPads and not iPhones.

On the iPhone it condenses the problem being smaller and the advert does not jump all over the place!  You have to scroll down further than that picture you have taken to find the Zombie advert.

You are getting closer, scroll further, it is just below the Haymarket advert.  At present you have something in the way of it, with a left and right and number 6.

Stuck with the bookmarks bar with L and R arrows etc. (part of the iPhone screen not the WHF screen).

I can only 'full screen' it in landscape'.

RE: iPad display problem

We just aren't seeing the problem here: the Currys ad (which we thought might be causing the issue) has finished, replaced by the giffgaff one which is working fine on our iPhones/iPads.

RE: iPad display problem

I'll try to upload a video showing the problem on youtube when I get home this evening. Gel, can you upload one as well please?

The Giffgaff is causing more havoc than the Currys one!  Can you just remove that one too, please?  It is not doing anything anyway.  Cheers.

RE: iPad display problem

No gel, sorry but we can't remove it. We have to pay for the website (which is free to users) somehow! Smile

I'll ask internet ops here to take another look at it.

RE: iPad display problem

Well it's certainly still happening here!

Every time I load a new page or scroll a page it gets re-drawn in big black blocks which is enough to give one a migraine

Cheers.  Perhaps they can stick it somewhere else?  If it stays in the same place our eyes are buggered!  Perhaps they can stick it at the top of the website, somewhere where it is not all squashed up.  Cheers.
