    New iPad, ads down the right side of forum.

    I dropped the old one.

    On the old one, the forum filled the whole screen. On the new one, I get the ads. How do I remove the ads? No offense, but I don’t need any prompting to buy more AR stuff.

    I tried logging in and then logging out. When the new iPad finished downloading all the old apps, I’ll try clearing cookies.

          I think Apple has updated the iPad os to be more like a desktop display so it can be more like a laptop replacement. (Think chromebook, surface, etc...) but there may be a way to switch back to mobile view... may have to google it though.

            That's what it is. In iPadOS Apple made Safari behave like MacOS Safari. You can get the mobile site by hitting the AA Icon in the left side if the address bar.

            It’s the same both ways. It loads full screen for an instant, then the sidebar appears.

            Hmm. On my phone (iOS 13.3) requesting the desktop site just loads the mobile site. Wonder if that's a Safari bug, or the forum software.

              I’ve always had the ads on the side. I just assumed that since it looked like they were put there by AR vs a paid advertisement space that that’s how it was supposed to be

                    Try clicking on the AA at the top and press the captial A until the ads disappear. On my it needs to reach 175% to remove the side bar.

                      Greetings Mosca

                      This is only as screen size/resolution issue. The sidebar does not show on smaller screens. So your new iPad must have either a larger screen or resolution. Or you had your old one zoomed in a bit. You can test this by just zooming in or out. The side bar will either show or be hidden. On larger screens you have to zoom in about 200% or more to see it.

                        The new iPad has a slightly higher resolution, yes.

                        It’s not a big deal. I’m more pissed that I dropped the old iPad and had to buy a new one. Even in a protective case, if an iPad drops and hits on a corner, in just the right way, the screen won’t crack but it’s touch function goes all wonky. “Touch here and it registers there”, that kind of stuff. Had it happen twice. Oh well. Costs $200 to fix, a new iPad is down to $279.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        the good one grill
                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                        kareubequ bbq smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                        masterbuilt gas smoker
                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
