Default Our 1st Post - Hi all - does this site always jump about ?

I am trying to read posts but the page keeps jumping to the top so I scroll back to what I was reading and then hey presto it jumps to the top or bottom of the page again... very frustrating grrrr lol

Hi we are Jay & Laura btw, still in UK but moving to Spain in December.

The short answer to your question is "no." ..... What sort of device are you using? Are you looking at the full site or the "mobile skin"?

BTW welcome to BE.

Oh, and please take a moment to review the site rules linked in the far right of the buff-coloured menu bar above.

I've been using this site for several years and never experienced anything like that.

Yes, this happens to me on occasion too, but in this case only persists in 'jumping' to the bottom of the page. Appears to be a scroll anchoring problem linked to the ads loading on the side bar.

Resolve it by clearing history on the Chrome browser and reloading, but it can be a nuisance, although an infrequent one.

Hi and a warm welcome to the Spanish forum on BE. Myself and Fred James are the moderators for the Spanish forums whilst BEVS moderates Europe. Moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. This is so that members gain the information that they are looking for and find their experiences on the forums to be friendly and worthwhile.

Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderator who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are usually friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge about the issues of living in Spain. I hope that you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

We are using win7 and google chrome.... Think it has something to do with the ads on this site.

Don't think the site owners will be too happy about it...but the newly installed ad blocker works a treat !
