Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The whole forum1.htm file looks like this if you're not sure what you're doing:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That works fine - the negative is that the user sees an error message for a few seconds, then it redirects ok to the advertisers site and hopefully they forget about the error message, because it worked

Make a file for every forum. Just hope you don't have 80 forums like me!
Thank you so much for the advice.

I would only add that it might be better to use php for redirection:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
