I saw a few posts about this when Logos 8 came out. Most people were confident that 8.1 would provide the ability to turn off ads on the home screen. I am not seeing it. (I am currently running 8.10 beta.)

This is really annoying. I shouldn't be forced to see ads in paid software, especially software that is this expensive. At the very least, I should be able to turn them off.

Currently, on my home screen, I am seeing five large block ads for a Christmas sale—many are identical—and two smaller ads. These ads take up precious real estate and just add clutter. (I have numbered the ads in the image I attached.)

Am I missing something?

In the settings for the Explore section try turning off "My Logos Messages"

Unfortunately, that didn’t quite do it. However, if I turn off that, along with Faithlife Blog and Logos Blog, they go away. However, I'd like to get editorial content from the blogs. They need an option to just turn off ads.

Thanks for your help.

My solution was to not use the home page at all. The Logos 7 home page was much better than the current one for which I can not be bothered with, it is an awful user experience IMHO, Unfortunately the blogs contain adds and you can’t pick and choose It’s all, including the infomercials, or nothing. I l’m old school and just go to the blog site and look at the articles that interest me.

Yep. Also on the mobile apps. Clear the decks.

Then you have the massive popup on Logos.com that violates the customer's request. Then the popup on product pages that if it has a book, and you close it, the cover remains. That's a beauty.

Ironically, I like adverts. The arrival of Costco and Sams pamphlets is a big smile on our faces.  On Amazon, I always check the associateds, and customer also bought. And NO POPUPS!

I honestly don't know why FL marketing is so abusive at every corner. I'd like to say, maybe some respond, but competitors make the process considerably more fun.

EDIT: After I posted, I saw Michael's screen copy. Heavens to Betsy! I hadn't seen the home page for years, I think.
