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
http://www.professor-oak.com
, 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
<script>
$.ajax({ url: "banner.php?Page=Home",
success: function( data ) {
$( "#Banner" ).html( data );
}
});
</script>

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
https://www.professor-oak.com/banner.php?Page=Home

is blocked by this filter
Code: Select all
/banner.php


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

Otherwise you should report the issue at easylist forum
https://forums.lanik.us/viewforum.php?f=64

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
