    Default DDO Wiki and Google ads

    Within the last week I have had a lot of trouble with Google ads covering up text on the DDO wiki pages. Has something changed with either DDO Wiki or with Google ads that is causing this change in behavior? I would like for it to stop.

    I use Opera browser so all ads blocked. I turned the blocker off and the ad on the left hand side was above the forum links but nothing was covered up by the ad.

    No changes to the Wiki afaik.

    Any chance you use Firefox?

    I haven't had trouble w/ the Wiki, but about 2 weeks ago the Forums changed noticeably. Every change on a browser has to be reconciled to every http platform, or something could go wrong - and they just don't bother with every one.

    OP said they use Edge, and I use Chrome and have seen the same issue as the OP, ads covering up the wiki content.

    Usually, when I reload the page, it fixes itself.

    I have had the same problem and am also using Microsoft Edge. Ads could not be removed over text, when they were closed, they simply disappeared with the Wiki text still whited-out where they used to be.

    1. Install Chrome.
    2. Install uBlock Origin.
    3. Profit!

    There is a cost for hosting a web page and the people that do it are entitled to earn a profit from it. I don't block ads, that is what pays for things.

    I'm on Chrome and they do the same with me.

    What you do is after going through and closing all the ad's is refresh the page and those blank spots will be restored with the missing texts.
