Can’t surf?

This article explains what to do if you can’t surf, or can’t see anything but blank pages where the ads should be.

I can log in, but when I click Surf I am redirected to the login page

This can happen because of two things, usually it is because the browser’s cache is full. You can easily test if the browser is the issue. Just try to open Hungry For Hits and surf in another (cleared) browser. If that works, you can know for sure that the one you tried first has something that blocks you from surfing. First try to clear your cache and cookies:

  1.  Clear your browser’s cache and cookies and restart it. This is usually enough to fix the issue.
  2. If that doesn’t work, flush your DNS cache and restart your computer. This should solve it. Internet lag may cause slow loading time and logouts.
  3. Run CCleaner or similar cleaning programs for your computer continuously to keep it fast and showing content correctly.

If clearing cache doesn’t fix your issue, you probably have something in your browser redirecting the surf URL. When you click surf, the URL on the surf button is http://hungryforhits.com/surfing.php.

If your browser redirects it to https://hungryforhits.com/surfing.php (with https instead of http) it would log you out.

This is a feature in newer Firefox versions. Type “about:config” in your url bar in Firefox and set “browser.urlbar.autoFill” to “false”.  You may also have to go into your Firefox settings and forget about the site.

If all sites attempt HTTPS, make sure you haven’t installed the “HTTPS Everywhere” extension or something similar.

It only happens in Hungry For Hits

If these things happen in just one of the sites you are surfing, it doesn’t mean cache is not the problem. It does not have to affect any other site you surf in so always try these steps first. If you’re still seeing blank pages or can’t access a site, check your anti virus settings to see if there is anything there that prevents you from visiting a site.

If there is any issue with the site itself, it would happen to all members. If only one person can’t surf, this is an issue with their browser or software, and usually it’s browser cache or an ad blocking plugin or addon which causes problems. You can test this by trying in another browser.

It only takes one bad ad to fill up your browser’s cache, and it doesn’t have to affect other sites when this happens. It can cause blank pages and incorrect clicks. It doesn’t matter if it used to work earlier in the day or the day before; if cache fills up, things will display incorrectly or not load at all.

The ads in surf are blank

If you are surfing but the ads are just displaying blank pages, check the URL of the surf window. It should start with http, and not https. If you start surfing with https, it will only display https content, and most things people advertise is not https. You can log in with https, but the actual surf frame should redirect to http.

If ads aren’t showing at all or if surf shows blank pages even after you have cleaned your browser’s cache, it is most likely a browser addon or plugin (most likely any type of ad blocker) which is causing this. Try to deactivate the plugin, clear your cache and restart the browser.

You can also often add an exception in the ad blocker for the sites you are surfing, so ads display correctly on those sites. There are guides for each plugin/addon on the page where you add them to your browsers, and you can also just google the plugin/addon name for information on how they work.
