Hi,

I noticed this about 3 weeks ago - if i have ublock ad blocker turned on, i see the ad at the top and those at the side. If i turn it off, i am prompted to turn it off, and still see the ads at the top and side. I turn it back on, no prompt to turn it off, and still see the ads.

 

So, not sure where the logic problem resides.

 

Regards,

Shadders.

It isn’t a problem with the logic. It’s how we serve ads that Ublock doesn’t handle well without manually telling it what to block.

Hi,

I am not bothered about the ads - i like the ads - seeing other equipment and brands.

Regards,

Shadders.

I notice that the server "sees" uBlock even for subscribers. No, I don't mind the message I get. I don't know if it has some effect on the reports you get, though, that some percentage of the uBlock users represents subscribers.

Yeah, it sees ublock and most other blockers. Subscribers could turn off ublock and get the same experience but without the anti-ad-block message on the site. No ads are served to them anyway. 

 

I’m contemplating disabling all tracking (Google Analytics) for subscribers as well. 

 

Edit - If you use the Premium theme you shouldn’t see the anti-ad-block message at all.

I believe I stripped the anti-ad-block code out of the Premium theme available to subscribers only. 

I wasn't even aware of a Premium theme until now, despite apparently using it. Come to think of it though, I don't recall seeing that popup lately, so I guess it's working.

It’s fairly new. I stripped all the ad code from it and enabled Ajax navigation because page views don’t matter when ads aren’t being served. 

 

I should strip the google analytics code as well. Give the complete early 90s web experience 😁

I don't recall when the last time was I saw the cute little kitty. (I think that was yours, or maybe it was another page?) I'll note if it turns up again and see if it's with the Premium theme (most likely not).

This happens to more pictures when using the (Android) Phone :

 

Click on the (first) picture in that post. 

The picture takes over the Browser instance and the A/S page is nowhere to be found. Tabbing back is grayed out. 

 All what remains is start a new Browser instance and pick A/S from the start. 

 

If it matters, this is with Opera.

Never mind the picture issue! 

 

Some practicing learns that the picture can open in a new tab without really seeing that happening. So rigorously killing the picture kills the whole browser instance. But A/S would still be there all right. 

 

The embedding issue remains. 😄
