(Please refrain from discussion or speculation about issues if they are not reports as specified here.)

Your full report (see above) will assist Internet Brands / FlyerTalk in handling these expeditiously. Admin / Tech attempts to respond to all reports speedily, but eliminating problems / bugs may require devising technical solutions that may require time. (Internet Brands operates during usual work hours on the U. S. West Coast; customary holidays, weekends, etc. are observed.)

NOTE: Internet Brands and FlyerTalk discourage the use of software that modifies your FlyerTalk browsing experience (e.g. ad blocking software). IB / FT declines all responsibility for the use of such software and can not provide support or assistance if such software is used. As well, we remind you IB / FT can only provide FlyerTalk free to members because of the financial support of advertisers; using ad blockers denies IB / FT income that would normally pay for your free community membership and browsing experience..

It just took me 30 minutes to post this complaint. Flyertalk continuously and repeatedly crashes Safari. I am so out of here until you fix it. Absolutely unusable.

Only shortly. Looks terrible on a 12" iPad and a total waste of that large expensive display. I think it's certain ad's that cause the crash. I think FT should be more discerning on the type of ad's allowed. Did you think of charging a small amount for users to avoid ad's completely? I understand you need to finance the site but the way it is at present is unbearable.

Exactly! What you do with it is far more important.

Cannot Insert Image on Quick Reply

Just thought I'd report a bug I noticed earlier today whilst posting on FT.

Symptom : Uploaded image does not appear in Quick Reply window and instead appears in the full reply form seen in the background.

Steps to Reproduce:

1) Click the Quick Reply button on a thread whilst the reply form at the bottom of the thread appears on screen.
2) Type a message into the Quick Reply form
3) Click the insert image button on the Quick Reply form

Expected Result: Image appears inline to the message you have just typed in the Quick Reply form.
Actual Result : Image appears in thread in the background:




Environment :
  • OS: Mac OS X 10.13.6
  • Browser : Safari 11.1.2 (13605.3.8)
  • Device : 2012 Mac mini with 2 displays attached (HDMI and Thunderbolt)
Hope that provides some insights.

Safe Coding,

James

Ninja Advertising

Your giant, double-width banner ads expand out of nowhere and steal my clicks, taking me to places I don't want to go.

I've had no choice but to install ****** for your site. Please let me know when this practice stops, so I can revert this back.

Are these on the forums or front page? Could you provide us a screenshot example of one of these ads?

This is what I see right before ad expansion:



Many times, right as I go to click the forum link, the space above it expands to host the giant add, pushing everything down below.



On several occasions, this shift has resulted in my inadvertantly clicking the ad banner that sudden pops up.

I'll speak with our ad team.
