What's up with the wide "Curl Fusion" ad?

... the purple one on the right. It's smushing up the actual forum. :evil:

    Doing the same on my computer.

    I don't know. But I got a laugh out of the ad, because I had a lollipop-shaped dryer like that back in the 80s.

    Have you ever tried FireFox? I don't get any of the ads using the Ad Block extension.

    I hate all the ads on this site. (And yes, I understand why they have them.....I still hate 'em!) I know it's been said 100 times, but I liked this board so much better before they changed it.

    Oh, it's small now.

    This is my work computer and I can't install anything on it.

    It's off the main page, but still on this one.
  • kcckcc Registered Users Posts: 681
    I was wondering the same thing. Mine doesn't show a picture of anything. It's just a square that says The........Curl Fusion. And a blank obnoxious long block. Maybe it's supposed to be vertical?
    And you know, I'm really not totally sold on the sandwich idea. They're kind of traditional, I know I said that, don't question me about that, but they aren't really all that chic, you know? --fig jam

    Ignore my last post. It's back on the non-hair page again.

    That's all I see too. Just a long purple box with curl fusion on the left end of it.

    They probably got enough money so we can get free shipping or half off our products. :wink:

    It certainly is a poorly done ad!

    How annoying! :x
  • KaiaKaia Registered Users Posts: 8,815 Curl Connoisseur
    It's pretty sad. Such a big, obnoxious ad, and I can't even see what they're trying to sell me. :lol:

    Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's gone. Taking up 1/4 of the screen I can handle, but 1/3 is obnoxious. Especially since there are ads on the left side of the screen, too.

    If you click on the left side of the ad, it links to a new Conair hair dryer.

    I imagine it's some kind of formatting error when they put the ad on the page. I know nothing about web design, so I really can't venture a guess.

    I'm sure it links to something, but isn't the point of an ad to lure you into clicking by showing you gorgeous curls or something? The purple rectangle advertising strategy isn't working on me. :wink:

    And being the nosey little web design geek that I am, I viewed the page's source and found the error: whoever create the code to embed the ad to the page, accidentally made the width equal 600 pixels, rather than the height. I found two instances of the dimensions, one that looks like the right dimensions (120pxW X 600pxH) and the wrong one (600pxW X 120pxH). The wrong one overrides the correct one.

    I still have mine and use it everytime I dry my hair. I have had it for at least 20 years. I have tried a diffuser, but it never makes my hair look as nice as this one...I always go back to it.

    Ah! Fixed, and now it has a picture of the dryer, which makes much more sense.
