  • Rouge Ad inserted on my forum, need help getting rid of it

    I've run VB forums since 2004. I've never seen anything like this. A rouge ad that I know nothing about is stuck at the bottom of every page of my forum. It does not scroll with the page so it gets in the way for me to get to the admin control panel. Very annoying and it I'm not even getting paid for the darn thing. I'm hoping someone else has seen thing and solved it. I run six forums total but it's only an issue on the one forum.

    Please try the following:

    1. To disable the plugin/hook system completely, edit includes/config.php and add the following code:
    Just below
    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);
    2. Now go to AdminCP > Style Manager
    and create a new style with no parent.
    Now browse your forum using this new style.

    Does this make the advert go away?
