BLocking too much.

Postby Professor_Oak » Tue Jan 17, 2017 5:48 pm

Hey guys. I hope this is the right forum.
I run the website
Code: Select all
, and I use javascript jquery to load dynamic content on my web pages from other pages on my server.
For instance, the main navigation bar is loaded via ajax
$.ajax({ url: "banner.php?Page=Home",
success: function( data ) {
$( "#Banner" ).html( data );

And adblock prevents it from showing. Not really a big issue except it's how users log into their accounts :-P

I don't derive my income from adds, (even though I have a few) so I don't care if users are doing that, but it would be nice if you didn't block the content they actually came to my site to see and use.

I have put up a message to this effect, it is something you should consider as it caused quite a bit of confusion until someone figured out what was happening.
I don't use adblock myself, so I had not idea why some of my users could no longer log in.

An xmlhttprequest request
Code: Select all

is blocked by this filter
Code: Select all

Fastest fix: just rename "banner" in something else ("barlogin" "mainbar")

Otherwise you should report the issue at easylist forum

Then wait an author to see the thread and then (after the fix in easylist) your users have to wait other 5-7 days to have the updated list

This is the exception (filter) your users should use to see the login bar (if you don't want to rename "banner")
Code: Select all
