You must be the only person in  the world worrying about internet adverts NOT being there!

Maybe top right hand corner of the page is a small button with an arrow in it. Press and maybe the adverts will reappear. If not have to wait for tech
Ugh

The little red arrow should return them.

@exmouthcraig
Are you still missing the advert's Craig? I have just noticed that I do not have any advert's showing and the 'Donations' panel is also missing. I am not sure how long it has been like this. I am using Win10 + Opera but just tried Edge and it is the same.

@dannyboy still nothing David. I've tried the little red arrow but makes no difference.

I just thought it strange how it disappeared but like you say no donation box or anything else that used to appear in the top right corner of the pages  :uneasy:

@Railwaygun it changes the page layout slightly but still no adverts or forum information on that right hand side appears.

I'm just viewing on my mobile BUT full desktop format so I dont know what I've done if it's just me that's lost it  :doh: (and not just the adverts)

Ahbut - I can not see ++, all I have in the top right is the little red blob that shrinks or expands the header.
@Railwaygun

Can you see the ++ Craig?

well the ad reappeared here when the red button was clicked ( and it toggles the Search box and shortcuts list)

worth flushing bowser cache and restarting the machine?

Mines the same. I can see the donations box, but no adverts.

Cheers,

That did not work. I can see the Forum header, the search box on the right and my info' under the header, but no advert's and nothing at all down the right hand side. If I click the red 'blob', it just toggles my info' on and off.  :hmmm:

It sounds like an Ad Blocker to me.  Have you updated your browser lately, or disallowed Ads?

I did have to update Chrome this week. I havent deliberately or consciously blocked adverts so might have to delve into google settings and see what happens  :hmmm:
