I realize that a free forum needs to post ads for revenue but the pop up bar on my lower screen each and every time I select a different thread is taking things to the extreme.
Is there a way to minimize the pop ups or must I donate $$$?

Try a pop up ad blocker. I use Opera browser on my phone, built in ad blocker.

Agree on the subscription. I renew mine instantly when it expires. I do it not just to reduce adds but to support the site. The amount of info I have learned here and continue to learn is priceless. I truly learn something here daily. If you can afford it I assure you it’s worth it to stick around here.

t costs more for a good cook book, than it costs to join the forum....
Good point! Better than a book - real people and real experience!

Sites like this are not free to maintain. I have learned more here than from anywhere else. My game is better and the camaraderie is amazing! All support and fun! Better than any forum I have been on - hands down!

Nobody has said how to be ad free, The way to be ad free is by paying for the SMF Premier Member. Just my $.02

I hate pop ups. But I am a member because I enjoy coming here to hang out with the crew. And learn things. It is really a small price to pay.
