CNN - Exit pop-over block

Postby Rhudi » Mon Apr 30, 2018 7:48 pm

I believe CNN web admins have a hobby of making their site as annoying as possible.

Every time you try to "mouse out" (getting ready to close, or click to something else) they pop-over this full-page crud to remind you to subscribe to stuff.

I've blocked a few elements by clicking, but i know I need a wild-card to keep these dead.

Here's a sample (from my manual one-off blocks):
Code: Select all
cnn.com###bx-shroud-661555
cnn.com##.bx-matte.bx-shroud.bx-shroud-661555


How would I condense that into a wildcard block? looks like I need anything that has "*-creative-*" or "*-shroud-*"

How would I block these?

The number changes. I tried "cnn.com###bx-shroud-*", but that throws '#bx-shroud-*' is not a valid CSS selector".

I've not tried to write a real wildcard enabled filter and am a bit lost. Once I'm guided through once, I'll be ok. (or, is there a CNN-haters block list already?)
