Pages jumping to animated ad at the bottom

What's happening?

Every page I load, or go back to, I'm directed not to the top of the page, nor where I was before, but to a smurf playing football, or, just now, an animated mobile phone.

I could be thankful that at least the pages are loading not hanging, but this renders them just as unreadable.

iPhone SE, Safari, mobile site.

Hi silence,

Thanks so much for this.

We're currently working on fixing a very annoying issue with safari and so we feel that this could be related.

Not the smurf, though.. The smurf is a competition we're running!

We're hoping to get the issue sorted ASAP.

Thank you! I thought this was my phone!

It's not just the smurf; I'll let him off! It's every page - jumps straight to the bottom to the big square ad.

Sometimes when I'm hfway through reading the page too.

If I'm quick, I can stop it, by holding my finger on the top post before it slides down. If I do that all the time the page is loading, it usually behaves. But obviously that doesn't help if my finger ends up accidentally clicking on a link to another page (or ad).

I'm having the same problem with the angry looking smurf. He can feck right off!

So the Smurf is meant to be there? it looks like the lower half of the page hasn't loaded because of the white space gap or my adblocker has blocked the text that tells me what it is

It's not a good look for you MNHQ (the Smurf) IMO (not that my opinion is worth much!)

I've given up on using the mobile site for the moment because of this. Hope you can fix it soon.

Yes I keep being taken to the bottom of the page where the skirt is and it's very annoying when I want to be at the top angry

Still happening for me this morning (iPhone/Safari). It's making the mobile site unusable so I'm out until it's fixed.

This keeps appearing in the middle of threads and I'm on Chrome Android.

MintToBe Wed 08-Mar-17 07:00:16

This even!

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 08-Mar-17 10:40:52

Tech is looking into this, please do bear with us! We appreciate it's really annoying.

What are you all using? Someone has mentioned chrome and android - what about everyone else?

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 08-Mar-17 10:49:18

Also, is this happening on particular pages?

dulcostar Wed 08-Mar-17 10:56:16

Happening with me on every page right now, keeps jumping to the bottom .
Currently on active chat boards and every single thread I click on it jumps to the bottom, then same again when I go back into the active list.

MintToBe that's actually an MPU and you can pass any feedback that you may have over to this thread here. flowers

Still happening to me too, I'm using Safari on iPhone

TheNameIsBarbara Wed 08-Mar-17 16:29:42

Started happening with me today, every new page goes to the advert at the bottom of the page with the annoying smurf. I'm on an iPhone and accessing it through safari rather than the app, just for info.

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 08-Mar-17 16:41:39

Can you please send us direct links to the pages that this is happening on?

Tech are struggling to replicate and need to look on the exact page/pages that this is happening. Any links are fine, even if it is happening on multiple.

Sorry to be a pain flowers
