    http://webpass.io is a new service, currently in beta, that looks to provide good functionality for site owners.

    Users sign-up, on a monthly subscription, to get xx thousand of page visits ad free on supported sites. In return, webpass.io shares the revenue with you.

    They have an API ( https://webpass.io/support/article/api ), and I thought it would be a perfect fit for xenforo sites.

    Unless you start hiding content from them because an adblocker has been detected ;)

    Yes! What are you using to achieve that?

    @rellect said this...

    Im hoping that @rellect adds the ability to automatically put the users who are using adblocker into a user group (via a user group criteria) that we can use to put these users into a special user group. Would make things even easier!

    That's not possible to do as far as I know. All of the checks to do this are client side. You could do it though AJAX I suppose, but that seems like it may be unreliable.

    I mean, you could say, use ajax to get the post content after checks, but who says they can't be manipulated. People block ads rather than pay for ad free subscriptions on the site (a lot of sites have this) - people don't like paying, they don't like ads either. This wouldn't work.

    @Mouth I can look into adding support for this into [AD] Monetize Pro if you're interested in funding a feature like this. Just shoot me a PM if you are :)

    @Mouth I ended up adding webpass.io support to our ad manager. Turns out their API is really easy to work with :)
