    Hi Excel Forum.

    Hi Excel Forum. I don't want to use your notification plug-in. Ever. Please turn that stupid banner off, or at least make it dismissable. PS I also hate LinkedIn notifications and emails.

    Re: Hi Excel Forum.

    Also, using this 'functionailty' doesn't make EF a 'top site' - If LinkedIn and Facebook were that good, we wouldn't be here would we!

    Re: Hi Excel Forum.

    It's still there today. Please turn that stupid banner off, or at least make it dismissable. Do you have any idea how irritating it is to have that shoved in your face every time you switch to a new page??

    Hi Rorya,

    We have taken this issue on priority with our management and as of now we have turned off the notification for 30 days in case someone click on "Close". We have already raised the concern for our user community that instead of "Close", there should be "Block" option so if someone not interested, can click on "Block" and should not get notification pop up again until clear cache/cookies. However, the final decision on this will be taken on Monday.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding,

    Yellow Message

    Anyone know how to get rid of the distracting yellow message at the top of the page? I've read it and I don't want the plugin - how do I dismiss it?

    Might be a method coming...

    but at present I don't think you can remove the banner.

    Give us the option to get rid of it. I'm not interested in the plugin and never shall be.

    You realise I'm talking about the big yellow banner at the top of every page, right? Because that's still there.


    We have already raised the concern for our user community that instead of "Close", there should be "Block" option so if someone not interested, can click on "Block" and should not get notification pop up again until clear cache/cookies.

    So you'll take a final decision as to whether or not the users should have a choice about being pestered by your site? Very generous.

    It wasn't broke-so they fixed it, and now I can't get to some threads where I had previously contributed.

    I don't want the plug-in either just as I don't do Facebook or Lnkedin

    It's a screwed-up plug-in anyway and preventing me from finishing off a couple of threads

    Re: Yellow Message

    xladept, it does not have anything to do with either of those 2 site - or others. It is an add-in (that most have no interest in, including myself) for this site
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Re: Yellow Message

    Hi Ford,

    They said it's a plug-in and I keep getting a plug-in script warning where I had none before - it seems more than coincidental

    Re: Yellow Message

    Orrin, Im not saying that is not the case, just that they said it is the same process being used by "top sites like FB and LI"

    I complained when it 1st showed up, got nowhere as usual

    It must be the first result of :

    We are running a small survey on Excel Forum (Refer to following Google form link) and we request you to kindly take out a few minutes from your precious time to answer enclosed questions for us to improve our services and user experience.
    Can you please add this thread to all other 'stickies' ?

    I assume the final decision was simply "we don't care what the users want, we'll just force crap onto them anyway".

    Still there. Still annoying. Particularly as you've made them dismissable before so we know you can do it if you want to.
