Exclude this website button

Postby CarolynCilley » Fri Dec 11, 2015 1:11 pm

It would be nice for webdevelopers to add a button on their website where people can simply click on to exclude the current website from adblock. I understand that there are some issues with this since websites can just trigger the button, but I have a idea for this.

Let webdevelopers place a div on their website and let adblock search for the div an replace (inject) it with a button created by adblock.

For example:
<div id="addblock-exlucudebutton"></div>

Get replaced by the adblock plugin with the adblock exclude button. This way the button needs to be user triggered and people who want to support a website by unblocking it's ads do not have to do trouble to exclude the website. Adblock can design the button subtile so that it won't be anoying ofcourse. (it needs to be small)

I have no idea if some one already suggested this ( I couldn't find it ). I hope you guys like the idea.

Once such an on-page element has been made active by ABP, nothing can prevent a script on the page from simulating a click or similar user event.
