home PC, Ipad and mobile working fine, just the work PC to sort out, must be the firewall blocking it. The new site comes up OK, just doesn't want to load the forum. Anyone else had this problem?

I'm having the same issues as Fraser. I switched off the pop up blocker and it didn't make any difference, so I've contacted I.T. ..........They've given me a reference number

The whole website was blocked for me initially, had a word with IT and they unblocked it all.
No problems since.

Our IT are  still looking at it, they made progress today and found out it was being blocked but not throwing up a message to say that. Hopefully have it sorted soon

I have tried viewing this via Firefox and IE and I still can't get any adds to pop up even with the pop-up blockers turned off.
I will try with Safari later tonight.

Nabble - the guys that provide the forum will remove all ads when you buy credits from them.  

Everytime a page is loaded and an add stopped that is 1 credit.

10,000 credits is $6.
100,000 credits is $30
1,000,000 credits is $150

to date the forum has had 1,000 or so views.
I don't think the cost to ART of removing them is going to be significant per year.

You can also choose if ads are stopped just to registered forum users or to everyone.

I can see the ads have gone but the forum is still not loading on my work pc, can those of you who have had success with your loading problems possibly get some detail from  your IT support of what the problem is and how they got over it so I can give our guys a clue?

Think it highlights my inner beauty Fraser, I'm allowed to use it now they couldn't make the charges stick....

Our trust subscribe to an external website blocking "Thing", can't be more specific than that cos i don't know what it is!
They just added an exception to the list of blocked sites, it was down as blocked due to it being a forum, a generic block existed and now no longer does.

What's with the Ipad Wildeymon? you turning into Captain WOW? it's a slippery slope mate, a slippery slope!!!!
