May 2009 Saving Sense
« on: May 14, 2009, 08:17:49 AM »

I've clicked on the link in your banner ad that states you have coupons on the May 2009 Saving Sense page. However, none of the links are working.

What browser are you using?  I was testing the new Firefox Beta and it is in-fact not working in that version, I think FF still has some work to do with it.   
In a normal browser, the links open in a new window - if you have a pop-up blocker on, it may be the issue.

I am using Internet Explorer and have the pop up blocker turned off. It does bring up another page, but the new page is the same page as before.

Which version are you using of IE?  I just tested in both 6 & 7 and it worked.  Maybe it's an individual coupon.  Mine pops up a blank window and sits there for a bit, because it does take a little while to download the coupon.  I'm going through trying every one of them.. I'll report back if I can replicate the error.

I'm using version 7 and have all the updates.

None of the coupons come up in my browser. The picture at the top shows only a box with a red X in it.

Here is a copy of the image and a link to the image that is not showing up.

Each of the links show a cID# but each link shows the same page with no images on it.

I get the same thing on that page.   When I go back to the main page, I'm able to download the coupons.

I'll keep poking around at this and let you know what I find.

The banner link is to this location

http://www.monroetalks.com/coupons/index.php/

while the link you provided here without the / works just fine.

The link with the slash has a red dot where the Saving Sense logo is in the other link plus when a hyperlink is clicked, it reverts to the same page again.

The link without the slash works fine.....and I'm using FF 3.0.10 although I don't think it matters.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Could you please make both items in the news bar 3 lines so that the screen will stop jumping? It is very annoying.
