Hide / Remove Ads from New Editor Mode if Meta Name = Mobile

by adventureharder » Wed May 22, 2019 12:43 pm

I would suggest hiding Google ads from [Android] mobile devices while in "New Editor" mode. In full-screen desktop, there are no ads visible when in "New Editor" mode. On [Android] mobile, the Google ads overlay the "New Editor" iframe (?) page scrolling and/or take up too much space as to make the "New Editor" mode on [Android] mobile devices practically unusable.

This is an unnecessary inconvenience. Anyone with editor permissions is already supporting the site in some manner through financial contributions and/or labor. Editing tasks should not be compromised due to the portal and limited viewport.

Granted, it's a low priority; however, it would make life easier for site contributors to maintain pages and keep them up-to-date.

Ads were meant to be removed from the editor at all times. I'll get that fixed.

Oof ... same issue with ads and the forum composer / editor. On [Android] mobile, the ads cover the entire text entry field as well as the formatting option buttons.

You know...I noticed that the ads showed up on the bottom of the screen again after a new advertiser asked to work with us. They show up no matter what, even when I have an ad blocker on!!!

I have verified that there is absolutely no ad code on the editor pages, so I'll have to ask the ad agency what is going on there and how to stop it.
