Blue Lines?
« on: Monday 12 November 07 23:19 GMT (UK) »

Help!  Is anyone else seeing blue lines under some of the places mentioned on the profiles of the rootschatter?  When I let the cursor hover a little ad appears.

It's not happening on all the postings.

Hi Nanny Jan

Yes I am having the same problem. Seems to have been hi-jacked by advertisements everywhere. Even the mention of 'cursor' on your posting has an ad with it!

Hi Trystan

The link doesn't work, I get the message 'an error has occurred'

Are you still experimenting?

Personally I don't like the blue lines and the pop-ups.

Hi Dawn,

There are no "pop-ups" - the blue lines are only activated if you hover over them.

Sarah :)
