    The latest thread column on the right is much larger tonight than normal. When I open a thread it's normal and then it blinks and expands larger. What can I do to make it small again?

    About 3 weeks or so ago, when I loaded the board on my mobile phone, for some reason it came up in a completely different format. It took a little getting used to, but now I am getting pop up ads. Some of them I can close but there is still a car ad that is embedded in the first post of any thread. I've never installed tapatalk so I don't think it's that.... I use Motorola Droid Ultra and chrome browser which shouldn't be the problem as it's worked since I've had the phone.... Did you have the site optimized for mobile or any other change? ... Any clue why I would be getting ads on my phone and not my tablet or desktop?

    I'm paranoid.... and I find it annoying that on posts from people who use it that there's a tag line in every post that says something like... "Posted using Tapatalk" or some such...

    ps, I find you annoying anyway... ha ha :)

    You can remove the tagline. I like it to be there so it tells you I am posting from a phone and thats why there are typos or very short answers to things. Its the best phone app I have ever downloaded hands down.

    I'll give it a try, but I'm still wondering how the forum format changed completely and why I'm getting ads when I've used the same system for years without that problem. The car ad is embedded like a signature and you can't get rid of it. There's no way to close it. I get that it's another way for 'the man' to intrude into our lives but that's a discussion for another forum.

    Thanks for being helpful!!

    Yeah, I'm logged in. They're not the kind of ads that appear on a web page. I'll send a screenshot from my phone shortly....

    Ok, so after all this, I logged out of the site and then logged back in. Seems to have fixed it...:shrug:


    However, I'd still like to know how/why the site mobile app changed format.
