Temporary Changes to Site

This weekend we are switching our adverts over between commercial partners. They will disappear and then reappear but initially they might not work so well on mobiles.
Bear with us please. Just trying to get them to work first. The initial adverts might not work responsibly, ie they might not work well on mobiles.
We will be getting back to the suppliers to change this once they show and once there is someone able to respond.
So, apologies if there are any problems over the next couple of days. It should be very short lasting.
The next part of the plan is to work to make some changes to the site so the adverts work and dont get in the way. Am hoping this will all happen before the restart of the season. But this is new people we are working through Covid times. But I am hopeful.
Then once that all works. We get content article pages over here. And this then becomes the prime fmttm.com site.
Eventually this will be the only site.

There should no adverts showing for guns - I actually had to opt out of showing any arms adverts - I did that many years ago.
Let me know if you do get gun adverts, please.

Will do. I've had them for the NRA and for how to get a concealed-carry licence in NY, that I can think of.

I had no idea. I definitely blocked all ARMS adverts through google years ago - I bet they would say that was UK or Europe only.

We are having to wait now for the new adverts to appear and only then will we know how/if they work. Due to COVID things can take longer working with some of the bigger organisations like google.

New ads should be starting to show now and then we expect to get some developmental changes recommended tomorrow.
Let me know if there are any issues on a mobile.
I reckon we need adverts showing on a mobile above and possibly to the right still. Will see how it goes.

Some ads have been swapped and I have been given some more codes and specifics that I have forwarded to a developer and then we will have what i hope should mean subtle changes next week to better accomodate ads etc. It has been a tricky period on here, when added to a very difficult world at the moment. But hopefully we can start to see some little progress on here - in time for the season restart.

Yes. they are positioned wrong for phones/tablets - so we have sent a report to the advert tech guys to make some corrections. Waiting for them to respond. Hopefully we will be looking much better in the morning.
