Ok, needing feedback for t-shooting.  At the very bottom of the pages, on most pages there's a Kudos Laser Engraving ad.  Does anybody besides me see it?  Does anybody get a grey box with a red circle, where it's failed?  Some pages have neither, like this write-a-reply page, that's probably a setting.

Thanks,
BtWE


Neither appear on my screen.

I have a very light gray rectangular box. Inside is a darker gray what looks like a puzzle piece and the words ~~ '' this plug-in is not supported '' ~~  next to it.

I did not see the ad (top and bottom of this page) until just now, when I enabled Adobe Flash which Edge really dislikes.

Mike

Now the top ad has been replaced by the donation request.

Yeah, it's a Flash/browser problem.  I ought to replace the Flash ad with something else.
The Kudos ad appeared at the top for a minute, as I was experimenting with ad settings.  The top should be 'Donate" and Kudos at the bottom.

Thanks!  I see it in FF and IE, Chrome gives the Flash option.  I hafta do something so it's there automagically, nobody wants to give permission to an ad.   :-D

On my list are a lot more emojis, they're kinda fun.

I have 'Donate' at the top but not even a hint of Kudos at the bottom.  On an iPad.

The larger font is still a shock, but if others like it I'm sure I will eventually get used to it.  :?

Flash is eol, Adobe finally dropped it due to persistent security issues that they couldn't fix.  Some browsers still see it by default (IE11), most do not.  Some just ignore it (FF67), some display an error message or broken image.  It can be manually enabled in some browsers, or viewed with a plugin, but it's best not to use Flash, especially for ads, because you don't know who, if anyone, can see them.

Been riffing on the header, how does it look on different devices?

Also added new 'Home' button to main menu, goes to landracing.com website.  'Forum' button is now forum home (main index).

If he could have waited for the forum upgrade it would have changed everything.   :roll:
