OT Issues with the mobile version of the site

Not sure if I should just send this to DOK, but here goes...

Recently when viewing CAW on my mobile, I've been getting virus warnings. The site always jumps around a lot when loading and it's not unusual for me to hit one of the ads by mistake; however this is one of those annoying fake warnings telling me that the phone is infected etc. I've checked it with anti-virus software which comes up clean.

The problem is easy to get past - I just close the tab and re-open it; this works fine, but sometimes the warning comes up after a few minutes.

Is anyone else experiencing this? If so, is it a rogue ad of some description? If it's just me, any techies on here have any advice?

Thanks in advance.

make sure you're hitting the [m.rugbynetwork.net] mobile site, not the [www.rugbynetwork.net] one

Yep, as DOK says, the mobile native version is excellent.

Excellent really nor the word I'd use.

The ads which turn up just in time to reset a page and reload at the top rather than the end, and jump over the arrow so you click them by mistake are far from excellent.

Ah, thanks for this. I had been seeing the mobile version on my phone (and liked some of the features) but hit the [Use Desktop Site] button once out of curiosity and never managed to get the mobile version back again, until now.

Adverts are the price we don't pay for having this site. Works of the devil but a necessary evil.

No problem with the ads as they are now. It's when they are badly coded and load late/reload the page.

As mentioned previously, get an adblocker. I use Adblocker Browser on Android. Works great.

I find that when I use the mobile site it keeps taking me to the android pay store, so I assume I am clicking on an ad which jumps up at the last moment. Also, it doesn't seem to show the threads in order of most recently updated and doesn't show the red ink "new" until you've checked at least one thread, though I'm sure I can just about get over that!

Get an ad blocker!

We've had this before Cookie. Which Ad blocker do you suggest on Android without rooting?

I did mention it earlier in the thread ;-) Adblocker Browser works for me:

you may have to clear your browser cache and all that before it properly takes effect

I think cookie' s link is a standalone browser. Not really what I'm after as I'll lose all the other functionality of chrome and have to run a separate app just for caw!

Adblocker Browser is a marvellous piece of software for your Android but I think there are still some issues to be dealt with.
