    What pop-ups?
     
    Roadfood has relatively little advertising - especially when compared to media sites.

      On the iPad with Safari there is an extremely annoying pop up advertising bar at the bottom of the screen that jumps around and is jittery. It is so distracting I seldom visit Roadfood.com when on the road and my iPad is my primary source for communication. No other message board i use is as obnoxious. This board is not friendly for mobile on the go users. Mobile friendliness is also why it is much easier to post photos and communicate on Twitter and Facebook.

      I get the same thing on iphone, VERY ANNOYING.

              is there an adblock app for or plugin for the ipod?
               
              that might fix your problem.

                It seems to have stopped since I updated my ipad mini to IOS 7. It was driving me batty before and I didn't notice it had gone away till I just read this thread.

                  Did the update this morning on wife's iPad2 and, even using Safari instrad of my preferred Chrome, the performance improved; the Game Stop popup is now a little less obtrusive.
                   
                  That said, I write this on my 2005-era PC using Explorer and Windows XL.  No pop-ups whatsoever!

                    The problem's with your Mobile devices, not the web site.
                    Desk top is just fine.

                      The pop ups are not the only issue with this site.

                        This site is the only one that I get pop up ads on.
