Disney/Walmart Ad is back


Wobbles (or other admin), I'm having the same issue with a Disney/Walmart ad hijacking BnB. When I go to BnB in the desktop view, it looks normal but if you try to go to a forum or log in or pretty much do anything, I get sent to the Walmart website to view Disney Baby branded items. The ad itself looks normal sized but it's like there is this invisible border around it that covers the entire page. Since the ad is normal size, I can't really take a screenshot. I have to be in Mobile View in order to do anything on BnB.

This seems like it's a common issue with Walmart/Disney Baby ads on BnB. I'm assuming it's an issue on their end but is there a way to let their ad design team know this is a chronic issue so they can keep it from happening in the future?

Thanks!

I had this issue earlier today too. Very odd.

Is this showing when you are logged out only? I've tried getting the ad to occur without luck.

What Country are you?

It was happening whether I was logged in or logged out. But it was only there that one day. I haven't seen it since.

And I'm in the US for future reference.

The horrible Disney ad is back and I can't click on anything on the desktop version when I am logged in!

I am in the US just FYI.

Can you take a screenshot?

What device are you using?

What browser are you using?


Thanks

The ad has been coming and going all morning.

I've been having issues with ads for about a year. Some days I have none, other days it's impossible to get on. Are they not supposed to be there then? I'm sure this is why everyone's gone quiet, they've given up trying to get on!
It's such a shame

This Ad is making it impossible to do anything on the website. It literally has taken me numerous times of refreshing to just click in the box so that I can hopefully write this. Its getting absolutely ridiculous. Tried clearing cookies and it didn't work for me. Still has the stupid disney Ad!
