Clicking URLs in mobile site don't open

I've been having this issue with the mobile web version of SD for a long time now on iOS devices. Whenever I click on a URL that someone posted in any thread, a new window opens but shows a "Safari cannot open the page" error. I looked at the URL that is being clicked on and it looks like SD adds a bunch of jargon that causes Safari to not open correctly.

I've attached two screenshots as examples. One is a link someone posted that I clicked on to open, and the other is the actual error that shows up. Confused

Do you have adblock installed on your iOS device? That is likely the reason for this issue; adblock conflicts with our links; the solution is either to uninstall adblock or whitelist Slickdeals within the adblocker.

Wow do I feel dumb. LOL. I completely forgot I had an adblock on my iPhone. I had to Google how to whitelist sites and trying to find the setting. Jeez. All set, I whitelisted SD and everything works. Thanks!

Awesome!!!! Glad that worked and don't feel dumb - we are still working out how best to address the issues we're experiencing on mobile web and in the apps with ad blockers - they inadvertently interfere with our Slickdeals links and the only known solution at the moment is to whitelist or disable.
