Please FIX how ads are covering content

Postby fearlessleader » Mon Dec 11, 2017 12:16 am

I can understand the need to get money with ads, but...

(1) Please allocate space at the top and/or sides for the SIZE of ad you're GOING to be displaying. As it is, the screen is displayed and then suddenly things shift around as an ad is inserted. The result being: If you see what you want on the page and click on it -- bzzzt... an advert might have just appeared and you've clicked on the ad instead. Most (all?) banner ads allow you to specify the size ahead of time so you can set your html to leave space for the ad to be filled in.


(2) Ads along the sides actually BLOCK CONTENT! Seriously, on almost every page I display for a show's episodes the ad on the right side is actually covering some of the content.

PLEASE fix these issues.
Thanks

It's a simple addition to the HTML to (a) allocate space at the top for the to-be-loaded ad; and then (b) stop having all TheTVDB info centered and letting the ad-on-the-right cover it up!
