Missing signatures

I'm an elite member and noticed this AM that signatures are not showing--mine as well as other members.'

Sigs are still not showing. Is there a forum bug? Am I the only one not seeing his and other users' signatures?


Edit: I checked my forum thread settings and I have Signatures set to show--so it isn't that. I even unchecked it and saved and then re-checked it and saved.

I figured it out. Adblock in FF was causing the issue. My signature now shows and I can see others' sigs.

Adblockers are slowly going to block more and more forum functions, so be aware.

That just seems low down IMHO, especially for those with paid memberships.

Is this just a BF thing or an Internet Brands thing? Because my signature is still visible on other IB forums.

Oh well, some folks' signatures are way too long/distracting so I'll just continue to not have them visible on FF browsers. I freaking cannot stand the ad bombardment across the entire internet if I don't use Adblock (or if I'm forced to *shudder* use IE) so I'll just keep using it.

If you have a paid membership, you can disable the adblocker for BF as a specific exception, you know. You won't get ads because guess what, we don't serve ads to premium members.

Oh, and this isn't an IB specific thing....vBulletin is using more and more 3rd party software to track members use for optimizing their experience on the various vB forums, and the adblockers will interfere with basic functionality.

Gotcha. Well I'm on many vB forums and this is the first one I've noticed it on, so we'll see.

We're also running the newest vB software, and were the first forum to run the vBulletin 4, and are among the largest to run vBulletin, so we also have to have a bit of customization to allow the software to handle the scale of bandwidth and data requests.
