Yeah this has been happening to me too for months. Haven’t gotten any viruses though, I don’t think. It’s just bloody annoying.

Constantly!!!  Over and over again!  When I read weddingbee on my phone an entirely new screen pops up.  I close it and click on weddingbee again and another full screen sketchy ad pops up!

ADMIN! Please look into your ad contracts because this is a terrible user experience!

Yep, that’s been the case for months, even with pop up block.

This also happens to me on my phone. Randomly redirecting to another site. I’ve also noticed that the site hasn’t been working well on the phone in general. Typing has a big delay and the site is constantly reloading. 

I’ve also started getting the constant popups that grey out the screen and you have to scroll to the bottom and x them out again. The admins reduced this to once per day a while back, but they’ve started to come back all the time again.

Me too but only on my phone (not on my computer). It’s definitely concerning.

1Blocker solved the issue for me – no more pop ups or redirects and I use an iPhone. Hope this helps!

I was having a lot of issues until I deleted all cookies on my phone and cleared my cache. Then the pop ups decreased significantly.

I have to run multible ad blockers to be able to use this site. The admins insist it’s not them. It’s technically the adds they’re selling, but site admins deny that. So, no further forward there. Just download some add ons for your browser for blocking.

it happens to me but I think in my case it’s that the pop-up (usually to disney weddings) is actually invisible so if I click on anything on the bee I’m actually clicking on the popup.

this is the only site it happens on. it’s a fake google ad telling me my phone has been damaged by a virus due to the adult sites I’ve been looking at!!! I find it laughable because I don’t look up ‘adult’ sites and the ad also kindly gives me a percentage of how much my phone is damaged. It also repeats it in French too! 

Its definitely a wedding bee issue…..they know the issue but never really  have been able do anything about it. I have to agree with a PP who said it has something to do with WBee ad contracts. I found it had stopped for a few weeks but its now doing the same thing with a vengence over the last few days. 

Mrs Mouse must he having a day off because she is usually all over these posts. 🙂

I’m sure Mrs Mouse will look into this tomorrow.

There is a link at the footer of the webpage for the ‘support’ section should anyone have any problems in the future with anything site related.

Enjoy the rest of your weekends!
