Ads on my own ibles

I am getting ads when viewing my own instructables. I'm logged in, have a current pro account, and tried logging out and in again. When viewing other author's instructables, there are no ads.

Its normal!!!

They got our money!!!

now they will blast us with ads that block what we are trying to read!!


Cost me $50 to get MORE ads


I see banner and side ads on any instructable. forum content does not show these.

This happened again to me last week, too, but only on one computer. Clearing the cache seemed to fix it.

I believe we fixed this bug about a month ago, then accidentally reverted our own fix while releasing urgent changes elsewhere. We try to release very little in October, so we expect to get the fix for this rereleased next week along with a bunch of other changes.

I'll post here once the release goes live.

One of the best things you can do to be rid of ads from all web sites is install "disconnect me" under "tools> add-ons" while Im writing this is blocking 24 ads.

If you use chrome google "disconnect for chrome"

Pro members shouldn't have to do that, though - one of the listed perks of being pro is "less adverts".

Logged in Pro members should not see any ads in the body of the Instructable, period. You may see one in the header, and you may see two in the sidebar, but there shouldn't be any inline. Please let us know if this is not the case. Our testing has revealed no bugs in this area currently.

We did see an issue briefly last week where ads appeared for pro users in the body of the Instructable. This was an honest mistake and a bug, not a deliberate push for more ads. Please let me know if we've missed the mark!

There should not be any ads at all for pro members. I'm getting a header and one above the ible info on the right sidebar that follows me as I scroll down. I have never seen ads before as a pro member, and adding ads for pro, regardless of whether it's less than non-pro, would be very uncool.

I stand corrected, my apologies! I don't see this view very often myself, but I was pretty sure we'd always shown the leaderboard and sidebar ads. I can confirm though that you're correct.

We'll get that fixed for pro's pronto!

Any advances on this?
