I think the ad for the stay at home mom finding a remedy for teeth whitening is gross! It turns my stomach every time it comes up on the page to have to look in someone's mouth! This is distasteful considering the type of website CakeCentral is. I know CC needs the advertising to support the site...but this is disgusting! How about burying it way in the back somewhere?!

What, you mean those pearly yellowish-browns don't compliment the delicious cakes you're looking at? icon_lol.gif

I agree, it is a pretty nasty ad. I've been trying to tune it out, b/c I know that advertising is what keeps this site going. Still, it is not the most appetizing thing when you're thinking about cake and buttercream...

just a tip, if you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser & install the "Ad Block Plus" add-on, you won't see any ads.

i have never seen an ad on any of the forums i use! icon_surprised.gif) thumbs_up.gif

I was just going to suggest the same thing! (AdBlock Plus). It's free and it works GREAT! thumbs_up.gif

Do the sides of the page just look blank where the ads are supposed to be? Or does CC spread out into the ad section? Just wondering!

It seems like CC spreads out to fill the space; I haven't noticed any weird gaps. Give it a try! You can always disable it. You can even temporarily disable it for sites when you WANT to see the ads icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the tip! I'm a little challenged in that dept. (computers). Would someone tell me step by step how to engage the block? I use Mozilla Firefox.


Thanks!

I agree, it's pretty nauseating. Definately not a good choice for a banner on a baking site!

In your open firefox window go to Tools .. Add Ons .. in the search box put Adblock Plus .. click on the adblock plus when results show up & install. HTH

Be sure to hit subscribe to the page firefox pulls up once you restart it. You dont really subscribe to anything but you have to hit that for it to work.

There is only one white gap on the left under the CC terms & privacy policy .. thats it. Everything else is the same just moved up where the ad would have been.

It could be worse...at one time there was an ad in the popups for a TV show about strange foods which showed a guy eating a big spider. icon_wink.gif

What do we do if we don't know what we have? How do we check? I'm computer illiterate.

I don't think you have the most current filter for Ad Block Plus. Go to Tools -> AdBlock Plus Preferences, and this will open the AdBlock Plus Options window. You should see "Filter subscription: EasyList USA" and it should be checked. If you don't see that filter, that is the source of the problem. Click on Filters, then on Add Filter Subscription, and the EasyList USA is the first one. Make sure the button is checked, and then click the Subscribe button. You will probably have to close FireFox and then re-open it to update your changes.

It is not called Adblock plus with IE .. If you Have IE ( Internet Explorer) go to Tools, Manage Add Ons, Find Add Ons, in search bar on that page it pulls up put in "ad blocker" .. there are a few to choose from, There is Select View Filter & IE Jet Pop Up Killer & Ad stopper. I do not use my IE so I have not installed either of these and don't know how well they work, but that is how to find it for IE. HTH

I have Mcafee installed on my computer. when I installed Mozilla, it wouldn't let me pull up any of my websites. (Like cakecentral.com). Did I do something wrong? It said something about a Proxy something or other.........

Hmmm I had McAfee before & did not have any issues with the firefox. Maybe the settings on McAfee need to re figured?? Not sure, maybe someone on here will know.
