Honestly the busy layout here and ads/videos/pop ups are my only issues with this site. But they are super annoying issues! Ads at top and bottom, videos in the middle, pop ups its just UGH. This is the only site where I have these problems. :/ The pop ups completely freeze my phone and I have to go out, clear cache, then sign in again every time. Not sure how to fix it but dont feel I should have to download a specific app just to use this website without frustration. 

I prefer the forums here but theknot.com layout, features and lack of ads are way better to me.

I use ablock plus on the computer because the ads on here kept freezing up the page.

I use 1Blocker I think it’s called…on my phone because the ad pop ups on there are crazy too from just this site.

WesterosBarbie:  Surprisingly the ads arent an issue on my PC. And nothing ever pops up there. But I use my phone 90% of the time so this kinda sucks.

WesterosBarbie:  If there is a specific video/advertiser that is causing a problem, you can message me or post it here, and I will see if our tech team can block that ad.

I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one having these problems.

I’m having problems on my phone while using the bee. I’ll be reading a thread and suddenly be redirected to a new website, generally a mobile subscription page. My anti virus will then pop up telling me the website is malware and to shut it down. I’ll try and post a screenshot next time it happens.

Got these annoying pop-up ads while using Weddingbee on mobile.. These ads are making it difficult to use the bee. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but the bee seems to have many more ads/popups than before.. It also seems to run slower.
