I recently relocated our BBS website to a "budget" webhost (free). This entails the forced placement of banner ads on both html and cgi/php pages.

Since relocating, the "Preview" function will not work properly. The pop-up window appears as usual, but all it contains is their banner ad. No content from the upcoming post is displayed.

Likely their ad's are causing issues; please supply us with a test user/pass so we can check and see what the window loooks like.

The only real fix if their ad's are causing issues would be to contact them to disable them for certain pages, which I doubt they'd go for...

I'm 100% convinced this is directly related to the ad's being forced on the scripts; if you view the source of the preview page ALL that is there would be the ad code... You'll either have to have the webhost stop displaying the ad's or deal with no "preview"...

Note that I strongly doubt this is the only issue concerning these ad's, but those will slowly creep up on you I'm sure...
