The issue isn't that it doesn't work, the issue is that it can be easily defeated because Ad Block Plus allows the blocking of page elements with a simple right click. Thus completely defeating this add-on in a couple of seconds.
I have made a couple small changes myself to your coding so this does not happen and each instance of adblock message has a unique element identifier. If you'd like to implement it, let me know and I will privately message the code changes to you (don't want it to be defeated again so easily).
Currently the entire element is randomized every page load and it is not "easily defeated" like you say.
You must be using an old version of this AddOn.
The current version DOES randomize the element every page load.
Choosing "block element" and selecting the element in "AdBlock Plus" no longer defeats this anti-AdBlock.
I was thinking about installing this but then I thought about myself. When I get this on a page I simply just close that site never to return. I am not sure how one can get around this without chasing away members at all.
This is a major improvement and recommended update. Thanks to @bzcomputers for the heads up.
- Can no longer be circumvented by AdBlock Plus, AdBlock, or similar AdBlockers
- Uniquely and randomly create every major CSS class per-page-render
- Improve mobile responsivity
- Added a little more room for custom messaging (for anyone that altered the display message)
- Improved CSS by removing "&" operators (helpful...
Pop-up message from this addon jumped me on a forum I visit periodically. I thought at a time I could install this on my forum, but then I found element .wutime-adblock-full--box and make him straight to the filter. Never saw pop-up again. Reason Im writing this is because I think that name should be randomized. Randomization would made impossibile to filter an element.
More work to be done - looking forward to a further release.
- Updated to thwart uBlock user-specific filter list
Wutime updated AdBlock Detection [anti-AdBlock] with a new update entry:
v1.8.2 - Updated for uBlock and to ensure minJS
Read the rest of this update entry...
- Fixed false-positive issue
- Added eval to identifiers
- Added try, catch statement to help prevent blocking
- Updated to ensure jsmin="1" is set
This is a non-required update, v1.8.3 works fine and is a touch more difficult for newbies to circumvent.
- This update will no longer report a false positive for Core.JS.Malware
Yes, once whitelisted warning will not appear again.Couple of questions....
I don't want to stop people using an Ad Blocker, I just want them to whitelist my site if they are using one. If they do I assume they will not see any warning message? Is that correct?
Yes.and secondly is the warning message that they get customisable? Can I edit it?
