I'm constantly getting a full screen cookies banner popping up, how can I stop it as it's making it very difficult to read posts.

Okay Gary I'll report that to the Admin. In the mean time and just in case I use the Opera Browser and it blocks just about everything and I also checked my Google Chrome and it's not happening to me but it could be effecting others, and what browser are you using?

Here's another fix until it gets worked on:

If it's really really really really really bothering you you can get rid of it by doing the following

1. use chrome

2. Install the adblock chome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...namgkkbiglidom

3. click little hand icon that now appears in the top right (next to address bar)

4. click on options, check the "I'm an advanced user..." and close the tab

5. make sure you're on the expatforum page (any page), click on the icon again, now you have an option to "show the resource list" which is a huge list of all the js scripts running on this site

6. when it's loaded find top_menu.js (use ctrl-f) and check it

7. click next, select the option "ONLY pages on these domains: expatforum"

8. click add this filter, and refresh the page

The script you're blocking opens the notification and also (doesn't) set the cookie to stop the banner.

It only started yesterday, I use my kindle fire which I believe uses their silk browser. Haven't tried powering up the laptop so might be a kindle thing.

I use Firefox and haven't noticed anything odd either so might be at your end.

It's not an advert it's the cookie agreement/manage banner from the expat site. Selecting ok or manage removes it them when I go up or down a page it pops up again.

That does pop up occasionally, seems at random, maybe once every couple of weeks or so. I just click the X and move on.
