    I'm getting some strange issues with ads showing under the navigation. Thought I'd let you know.

    Thanks Si. Crap that's not good. So that will be the new Google auto ads which are supposed to insert themselves into smart locations. But it must be getting it wrong. I'll have to look at it again. This was me trying to boost Google revenue as we've got no premium members but were still talking pennies really. Thanks

    Seems to be random - guessing it depends on what ad is being displayed.

    Thanks Sparky, I'll have a play with it, sorry if its causing issues. Half the time I'm not sure if something is just me being an admin or what. I should probably create a standard user account to see how the site looks from their perspective.

    Yeah seems to be random for me too. Just happened again but then a refresh fixed it.

    Strange seeing ads here as not seen them for so long. Should I still be seeing them?

    Thanks for the feedback all, I'll remove the auto ads later today as they don't seem to be playing with Xenforo as much as I'd like. I am using rotating ads to deliver these so possibly that's not helping and Si, as the Don, the creator, you most definitely should not be seeing any ads. Rotating ads has the usual premium/admin/mod exclusions in but also a problem if its not excluding these for premium or staff :(

    Cheers Si. I can't figure out where this auto ads code is coming from. I've reverted all rotating ads back to your original code so possibly a setting I'm missing in AdSense now. Apologies that you are seeing any ads at all! Not good for the sites creator!
