    When AdBlock is enabled sometimes it's not possible to answer on threads or PMs. After disabling AdBlock everything works as supposed to. Maybe it would be good to add a notice to those surfing with AdBlock on BHW to turn it off because of this?
    I just noticed because I accessed BHW from another browser where AdBlock was installed and I wondered why I couldn't answer until I figured it was because of AdBlock.

    Which version of ad-blocker / browser combo are you using?
    BHW is advertiser supported. We only display relevant ads and don't distribute network ads.

    It was AdBlock+ extension on Chrome
    I wasn't arguing the need of ads, I don't have AdBlock installed on my own Browseprofiles.
    I discovered same thing on a project of my own where no ads are displayed at all but some functions were not working so I guess there is something in the forums-code that AdBlock messes with.

    If you allow our ad's to display then the forum will work at full functionality for you. AdBlockers mess with all sorts of functionality - by design and otherwise. As a rule you're better off allowing ads on properties, like BHW, where the ad's are curated.

    Sorry about the delay been fixing up the marketplace .

    Also plugins/addons like HTTPSEverywhere don't display the ads. It blocks the Ad Servers
