Try sending someone a PM and see if it goes away when you come back to the main screen.

Hi

This is kind of a technical problem.  Last couple of days you have been running an ad for Kaletra that is sort of a popup that doesn't go away unless you click on the little x on the corner. 

I mainly view the forums on my IPad or IPhone and that pop up is nearly impossible to click away.  When you move the screen to get near the x the ad in turn moves farther away from you.

It's vexing

Thanks for listening.

Same here. I don't mind the adds, and even click on them every so often to help with ad revenue, but this one is annoying.  The moving around causes me to accidentally log out  ::)

The misbehaving pop up advert has returned, and today it won't de-activate after sending another forum member a PM.

Can you please get rid of the pop-over ads in the newly diagnosed sections? It's not very therapeutic to go there and get greeted by a drug ad rather than useful information.

I'm happy that I found an ad block extension for Chrome to do away with the site's ads altogether. I wouldn't have gone that route if the ads weren't so obnoxiously intrusive all over the site. Is drug company money really the only way to keep this site going?

And why on Earth is the Search box hidden at the bottom of the page on the left? Could you please put it near the top of the page like it is on every other web site?

I'm new to all this and find this web site both frightening (the news on the front page is overly sensational) and confusing (it's really not easy to find the forums). Please think a little more about new users in the future. I'm sure the bells & whistles are great, but the basics are pretty awful.

I'll look into the pop-up problem -- I don't believe the ad should be appearing every time you visit the forums or open a new page in the forums.

Probably not really tech issue but........
As bad as the pop up is on my PC, it is 100x worse on my new iPad.  Not only can I now see the add (it is just a blank box on my PC),  it is extremely difficult to close it on the iPad without accidentally opening it.  When I enlarge the screen, to better touch the "X" it moves to the edge of screen where I can NOT even see the "X" any longer.

Not to mention the waste of my time and the frustration...... The only ads that I have seen are worthless to me, as I am already on a regimen that is effective for me.

This is definitely a tech problem -- I'm very sorry about the pop-up/iPad incompatibility and will try to work it out this week. I was hoping the problem was limited to the Kaletra pop-up campaign, which ended on the 15th.

Okay, we've made some progress with the ad troubles:

1) Pop-ups. As these involve open-source coding, we were able to enlarge the "x"s that need to be clicked to close the ads. This should make things easier -- but not necessarily perfect -- for iPad/iPhone and other smart phone/tablet users. Please let me know if this is not the case.

2) I realize there's been some sluggishness with respect to page loading times, which is related to our banner ads. We've taken a few steps to improve this. Here too, if anyone's experiencing significant problems, please let me know.

Thanks for your patience,

Tim

The "X" is much easier to hit now -- thank you.  Although I still do have issues with it moving to the edge of my screen where I can't see the "X" - and it only happens when I've zoomed in to read (i.e. when my reading glasses ain't handy).  Doesn't happen all the time -- but it is on both my iPad and iPhone.

Thanks,
Mike

Just some feedback on the search tool.

No matter what you search, no matter how common the word, or how many subforums you search in, the results always only return 1 page of results.

There is no 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... etc

Is this intentional?

Are you serious? I've had searches return fifteen or more pages. If what you're searching for only has one page, that's because you're either not using the right trigger words, or there just hasn't been the interest in the subject you're searching for.

I think he is serious. I just ran a search on all boards for "oral" and I received only 1 page of results.

Perhaps it's a permissions thing?

I tried searching "disclosure" and got one page, and all of the results were from 2006-2007.  Simply impossible and appalling as this has been a mot du jour for some characters in the past few years.   This is truly criminal.

Um, my apologies. The last time I used Search was a week or two ago and it was working just fine then. I didn't have time to check it out more thoroughly last night (it was waaaaayyyy past my bed-time) but when I checked it out a little while ago, I had the same problem. I searched for oral and should have had a shit-load of pages, but got only one.

Hi Tim,

Two things -- not sure if they've been covered and no, I didn't search for an answer first.

Since the site change, when I hit "Notify" to stay in touch with a thread I'm interested in, I don't get notices.

And every time I log on, without fail, an empty ad box appears which must be deleted each time because of where it lands and the amount of site real estate it blocks.

Anything I can do, or you can do, to alter these items?

Thank you.

I haven't experienced any notification problems -- for example, I received an e-mail notification about your message posted in this thread.

Have you checked your spam folder? Also make sure forums@aidsmeds.com is white listed by your e-mail provider and e-mail client.

This is the first I've heard of "blank" pop-up ads -- can you please send me a screenshot the next time it appears (timh at aidsmeds.com), along with information regarding the operating system and browser you're using?

Thanks.

If the dimensions are the same as the paid ad currently in rotation, I'll know that's where the problem is. If the dimensions are different, the problem may be something else entirely.

Hi. 

I hope I'm doing this correctly.

I posted a question today in the "Am I infected?" forum ("Brief encounter - unprotected anal insertive"), and I notice that there's a square smiley face icon to the left of my post that is not there of my choosing.  What is that, what does it mean, and how do I (or should I) get rid of it?

Thank you very much.

Hi Tim

I've been experiencing really (REALLY) slow response times for the last 3 - 4 days.

Trying to send a pm takes unusually long.  Trying to scroll down a thread either locks up my puter for several minutes (before the screen goes blank and then reappears) or it just sits there saying "Waiting for about: Blank"

I'm not experiencing any problems on other sites, like my home page, CNN, MSNBC, etc.

I've deleted cookies three times in 3 days.  And defraged my hard drive, even though it said I didn't need to.

Any suggestions?

my chrome browser has been bitching about "religion-faith.com"  (as a malware site) showing up on several pages here. It seems really infrequent and random. It happened looking at a few new posts and after I posted a PM to one person but not several others.

when it popped up again, probably for the 6th time today, I used my chrome browser "inspect element" function to look for this "religion-faith.com". That url crops up with Mecch's avatar ("http://religion-faith.com/images/stories/guru-gobind-singh.jpg). However, I'm not certain if Mecch has always had a post on each of these pages when I received the warning; but this is definitely something to keep an eye out for.

perhaps Mecch should grab that pix and store it elsewhere no it's not being accessed from that "bad" url. ;) (i'll pm him about this)


edited to add:
oddly when I went to PM Mecch I saw his avatar three times and none of those pgs triggered the religion-faith.com warning. ::) ::)

this is not a technical problem, just a vent. now that the "am i and estoy" is pay for play, is there any way at all that things could be changed so that positive users of the site can filter that board out. when i click "show unread", i don't wanna see countless idiotic threads. this came to a head for me when i recently noticed one poster has been posting for two years. i know i can physically go into the board, mark it read, then back out. i'm asking for a solution that i never have to see their crap.

i have a paper cut on my pinky finger. i shook hands with someone. are they infected? are you sure? should they be tested at 6 months? couldn't i be the first and most unique person to ever pass hiv in this way? are you sure. i'm gonna ask this question from every possible angle i can possibly think of. thank you so much for wasting your time.

edited to add, after we shook hands, the other person scratched their rear end vigorously. couldn't that have increased the risk? i'm so worried.

I would have written a long reply to your query, but you'll likely be dead by morning. It was an honor serving you.

Anyone else having problems with the forum pages loading very, very, slowly.

I am only having problems with this site.  Pages are taking 45-60 seconds to load.

That happened to me a few times yesterday, but it hasn't been anything happening consistently. I assumed it may have had something to do with the internet in general with all of the Sandyness in the Northeast. It's a little known fact that more than 50% of worldwide internet traffic goes through one place in northern Virginia.

I've put it down to Sandy as well. I was surprised the site was accessible at all, considering the BBC has been reporting that over 8 million residences and businesses from the East coast right into the midwest do not have power. Better late slow than never!

If things don't improve within the next day or so, I'll try to find out if something else is wrong. Otherwise, it's likely to be that bitch's Sandy's fault.
