Is anyone else getting these terrible, annoying pop-up ads on almost every page you load?  

Did we lose the spell checker?

Has iVillage considered going back to the Lithium platform so we can get the forums working after two week?

Here's another one I hadn't seen before.  It opened in a new tab (hadn't seen that either!)

Here's a separate-screen pop-up.

I've been getting a lot more pop-ups since the switch, too, even with a pop-up blocker.  I've seen the screen covering Minute Maid and Sherwin Williams ads (will grab a screen shot of Sherwin Williams next time it pops up)...annoying since I had already entered the contest just minutes before the ad popped up again!  I've also been getting ads in a different screen, again with a pop-up blocker.

Erin, I got a screen shot of the pop up add I have been getting regularly, hoping it gets attached correctly to this post.

Mine is a Florida Orange Juice pop up, or at least that's what i think it is. I am getting it quite frequently, not every single time I open a page or thread, but about every other time.

Hi,

I'm not seeing pop-ups that frequently. Would it be possible for you to grab a screenshot when you see it next? If not, can you tell me what it is for? I'll definitely have someone look into that.

As for spell check, yes, it's something that is not a default option, but will be built back in.

I've been getting popups for awhile now (they open in a new tab), but they do seem worse now.  I have popups blocked even and they still get through.  There's the annoying one that covers my whole screen as well- it says "click" or something.  I have no idea what it's an ad for.  Effective marketing, huh?
