For the past week or so, I have been getting this popup message (on my phone using the mobile version of the site) when threads are loading. I don't get it on other web pages.

I don't get that. 

Maybe that's for the ads? It can't be for anything else...

Maybe that's why I no longer get the banner ads. That said, my flash player is fully updated.

It's not that I'm bothered by their absence, but I do worry about Joe not getting the tiny bit of money he gets for displaying them.

It may not be much, but as they say, if you look after the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves.

Okay, @Joe, I think I have sussed why banner ads are no longer displaying for me, and I am not sure how to turn it around.

It seems that, for some reason, Opera has decided the banner ads are insecure content and are blocking them.

I have tried removing the block but to no avail.

Thanks @Ron Nasty and @Ahhh Girl.

I'm surprised any advertisers are using Flash nowadays. It's either Google or Amazon ads, the two types I have running here. I'll see if I can filter out the Flash ones.

What are you talking about? Pink Floyd will forever be relevant and never date because they did not inhabit the musical trends of the*... Oh.

Maybe it has something to do with the moved post throwing things off. I dunno.

This thread came up in my unread posts, even though it's obviously not unread as I made the last post, and I have (at least) 50 unread posts...

The last few times I've tried to upload a picture, it hasn't worked (about 2 weeks I've had this problem). I think @Martha had it in the picture game thread, and I only got around it by pressing copy image from my google search.

I can't upload from my Android phone either. I will send Joe an email with an attachment showing the error message I get when trying to add an attachment to a post.

I can’t upload from Mac or Mobile. Hence the missing hammer picture from this week’s WSC post.

I don't know if this ties in with the problem, but I tried to upload something in the arts thread yesterday, but it said something about not recognising the URL or that the URL does not exist.

That is the problem, so it appears the problem is universal.

Joe tinkered under the hood/bonnet of the BB. Let's see if I can upload a picture.

Yay, I got the green message saying my picture uploaded successfully.

He said there may be some more tinkering to be done. So go ahead and report if you can't upload a picture.
