In making some of the changes that Janet suggested, I then run into issues with accessing financial institutions. FYI, I use Safari instead of an app on my iPad.

Again, is the return on the pop ups worth the issues it causes for Airforum users?

Nope ... 4S ...

I have the same issue using my Android tablet. It is a Nexus 7 but I haven't tried saving the cookies. I will try this for sure as it is really frustrating to have to load a page then hit the stop button before the popup can be loaded/triggered.

As I have commented on another thread on this subject, this is far and away the worst site I experience in terms of pop-up frequency. I really don't believe users should have to go through several steps and alternate settings to make it tolerable.

But it is what it is.

I don't even begin to get it.
The mobile app for iPhone and iPad (iOS) and Galaxy Note (Android) have no pop-up ads.
Those who are having pop-ups must be accessing the regular website from their mobile devices, not the mobile app.
Go to iTunes or Google Play and download the app. No pop-ups and easier to use/view.
I agree that the regular website is pretty crappy and archaic, but the mobile app works great.
I just got an idea- I'm gonna attempt to download the app to my iMac.

In my case, you are correct. I get a daily email/digest of posts, and forgetting that I actually do have the app installed, I just start clicking on the listed topics. That's when the pop-ups start. I will try to remember to use the mobile app and see if the pop-ups diminish.

Overlander63 was dead on for my problem.

If you use the "view open tabs" in Safari on the IPad, you expose the private viewing option on the page header. All it takes is a misplaced finger on a five finger swipe and you enable "private viewing". When in private you get two indicators on the screen. Private becomes highlighted as black letters in a white field. Close all tabs in Safari and a message appears that tells you the consequences. Both are very easy yo ignore when you are in a hurry.

Did you change something overnight regarding that annoying daily pop up? I am using the main full site on an Apple iPad Mini, and have usually been able to log in with the pop up appearing only once, but I had the timing down so it worked for me.

I do not want to use the mobile app, but it seems as if you may be pushing people in that direction? I have not cleared my cache or deleted cookies, so I thought that the pop up was controlled by a new cookie each log in to prevent more than one pop up?

It is doubly troublesome this morning because I recently increased my password, per the site's suggestion, and it took ages to complete the log in.

Thanks for any feedback or suggestions, and for dealing with the recent DDOS attack. This is a great site!

Cheers,

Peter

Yesterday there was an update to the mobile app and it's likely that this was the cause of the 'nag'. Are you still having trouble after dismissing it?

Yes still having trouble on the iPad Mini. At home earlier the site was fine on my laptop. I am usually able to beat the new delayed pop up at home with a keyboard and mouse at the ready, even with the new longer password.

Now on the road, and the nag popped up 17-18 times in rapid succession after I quickly entered my user name. I was able to enter 3-5 characters of my password at times before the nag kicked in, which required Xing it away and starting again with the P/W. Finally I gave up with trying to enter the password and just focused on getting rid of the beast each time it popped up.

Finally it stopped popping up, and I was able to enter my new longer/safer password in one attempt.

"Nag" is certainly a good term !!!

Thanks,

Peter

Janet FYI I am in a different WIFI spot on the Mini still, and using the full main site. I cleaned cache and deleted cookies, and the pop up came up once or twice, so I waited for more but they never came, then I logged in without further incident.

Go figure . . .

Did you just change the code?

Thanks,

Peter

PS I assume you know there is a new pop up each time asking if I want to download the mobile app? Never! Can't stand any of the mobile apps. Period. [further rant postponed ]

Could you add something to the new pop up like "don't show me this window again" ?

FYI this continues, although the nag only popped up 7-8 times in a row this morning, using the main full site on the iPad Mini.

Have a good weekend.

Peter
