Problem Upgrading Site

My web site — warblerwatch.com — is “enabled” but I am not able to “upgrade” it…..I’m trying to eliminate ads at my web site.


I sent the following message via the “help forum” a moment ago as backup to this one:

Please note: For 8 weeks with your kind help, a solution is STILL not happening for me to upgrade my web site so that I can eliminate ads. I’ve tried. You have tried. But no one who has suggested remedies from your team has been able to help me. The problem remains that no one has told me how to send an attachment to show my situation. An attachment would show you a screenshot of the screen I encounter where the problem occurs. Here’s where the problem occurs and I’ll describe it because this “Contact Us” area has no ability to send an attachment: the two-year payment screen is present. I choose it. I add all my essential information. All is perfect. But the screen never gets past “thinking” as it states a recalculation of how much I owe occurs…..and the final ability to click on “submit” never occurs. Solution?
Regards, Daniel
