    To play WGT, your popup blocker must be turned off. Here is how to do it:

    Internet Explorer

    1. Open Internet Explorer
    2. Click Tools > select Pop-Up Blocker
    3. To disable pop-up blocking, select "Turn Off Pop-up Blocker"
    4. To allow pop-ups on approved sites, select "Pop-up Blocker Settings..." In "Address of Web Site to allow" box type, and click the Add button.

    Mozilla FireFox

    1. Open Firefox
    2. Select Tools > Options > Content
    3. To disable pop-up blocking, un-check "Block pop-up windows" > click OK.
    4. To allow pop-ups on approved sites, verify that "Block pop-up windows" is checked and click the Exceptions... button beside it. This opens the Allowed Sites - Popups window. In "Address of Web Site" box type, and click the Allow button.


    1. Open Safari
    2. Go to Safari > Preferences
    2. Click on the Security option
    3. Remove the checkmark from the "Block pop-up windows" option

    Google Toolbar

    To stop the Pop-Up Blocking feature in Google Toolbar, either

    1. Click on the Pop-Up Blocker icon in the toolbar to allow pop-ups on this site ; or
    2. Right-click on the toolbar and un-check Google in the Drop Down menu to temporarily disable blocking pop-ups.

    Yahoo Toolbar

    To disable the Pop-Up Blocking feature in the Yahoo Toolbar:

    1. Click the Down arrow beside the Pop-Up Blocker icon 
    2. To disable the blocker, un-check "Enable Pop-Up Blocker" in the Drop Down menu
    3. To configure the blocker, check  "Enable Pop-Up Blocker" and select "Always Allow Pop-Ups from..." on the same Drop Down menu. In the Yahoo! Pop-Up Blocker dialog screen, select in the "Sources of Recently Blocked Pop-Ups", and click the Allow button.

    CHROME!  The google web browser doesn't have a simple cilck button.  But I did find a simple instruction to use on the command line when opening the Chrome Browser.

    Within your quicklinks, right click the Google Chrome icon, then click Properties on the bottom.

    Then within the Target window, you need to add: " -disable-popup-blocking"  (with a space between the "/chrome.exe").

    It should look like /chrome.exe" -disable-popup-blocking

    That should do the trick!

    Another option for Chrome (and other browsers): I use Chrome without disabling the pop-up blocker. You just need to bookmark the page in which the game takes place: . Then you can open it directly via a bookmark.

    (PS: After you click certain links in the game window, such as Full Profile, you'll be prompted in the right lower corner of the game window to open a pop-up window = the main webpages with the forums etc. So, it's a reverse procedure for accessing from the game window to the homepage & community webpages, instead of the other way around.) ;-)

    I also use Chrome, and another thing I found is this:  if you went to the WGT home page from Chrome, and someone invites you to play, when you accept, down in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen you will see a popup blocker message.  I've had this happen to me a couple of times before I realized where I was, and how I got there.

    I use IE and never turn off the popup blocker and I never have problems. Popups are intrusive and on some sites, downright dangerous. I always feel that a site that allow popups is asking for trouble because no matter how well intentioned the site security is.... there'll always be some smart hacker break through and leave a nasty package for members.

    Why is there a problem. I have all my popup blockers on and have no trouble at all.
