    Angelfire automatically adds this code to your pages AFTER you make changes to them. For this reason, I'm pretty sure you cannot disable the ads.

    Even if you could disable ads, this is a breach of their Terms of Service that you agreed to when you signed up. If you disabled the ads, they'd disable you... well, your account.

    If you want free hosting with no ads, check out brinkster (http://www.brinkster.com)

    *remembers the time where you could disable Tripod ads with a few lines of codes...*

    Anyway, I doubt you could, most free web space providers now know how to stop that kind of fraud.

    oh, actually, i know tons of ways to disable the ads. my friend made a bet with me that i couldn't find one way to do it. i found 3 that worked, and came up with a list of others, that weren't worth trying, because 1) i had already won, 2) i like angelfire, and their service, and 3), i have better things to do.

    however, i won't tell you what any of the ways that work, are.

    see, when you signed up with angelfire, you agreed to those ads. if you disable those ads, you're breaking the legal contract you signed with them (yes, clicking the yes button, is the same as signing a contract). the people at angelfire, pay their bills, and pay for your website, using those ads. in other words, you couldn't have your site, without those ads. if you get rid of them, you're only hurting yourself.

    furthermore, when you signed up for this forum, you signed yet another agreement, part of which has a clause about this very sort of thing. not only do i not want to tell you how to do this, i can't, as a member of this forum.

    Isn't it nice that we have some honesty on these forums?

    Thanks Joh6nn, you echoed my thoughts precisely

    To reiterate joh6nn's first paragraph - there isn't an ad you can't disable if you know what you're doing.

    To reiterate john6nn's third paragraph, well nothing needs reiterating. He said it all, you are breaching a legal contract when "disabling" the advertisements the free webhost puts on your page. They have to make money somehow after all. Disabling the ads can and probably will eventually lead to them deleting your site, without prior notice.

    Anyway, as soon as the moderator of this forum comes along, the thread will be promptly closed.
