cre loaded adserver authsecure annoyance

I was working on a client’s site today and found the admin panel was slow to load. The url it was getting stuck on was one of the adserver.authsecure.com links, one of the Cre direct ‘feeds’ into the admin panel.

Taking a closer look at a some files in the admin revealed a possible solution for Cre Loaded 6.4.x users:

The file is admin/messages.php
Find (around line 27):

case 'upgrade': //index
  $n = 'a6bb2567';
  $zone = '50';
  echo cre_iframe($n,$zone);
  break;

Replace with:

case 'upgrade': //index
  $n = 'a7d7b7d2';
  $zone = '49';
  echo cre_iframe($n,$zone);
  break;

Find and delete this block (around line 45):

case 'login': //std admin login nag
  $n = 'ac49906f';
  $zone = '103';
  echo cre_iframe($n,$zone);
  break;
