This is a minor port, I am working now to fully port everything over along with a premium version.

I use Google Adsense on my website and considering Google Adsense is not malicious, I feel no need for adblocking software of any kind.

Therefor I have created this system which will alert members that ads are used to support the server. Wait... What's that? You don't want to annoy a member with constant alerts? No worries! This system works off of cookies, so once the member views the alert, they won't be bothered by it anymore.


Installation
1.) Upload the contents of the "upload" folder to your forums root directory.
2.) Perform template edits
3.) Mark Installed. =]

FAQ
Q: Why is it not working?
A: Make sure you uploaded everything and installed the mod. Also make sure template edits are completed.

Q: How does this work?
A: I've used adblocking software against them. I've made a fake advertisement which is never displayed on the forums, but is within the coding. Since the soul purpose of adblocking software is to of course... block ads. It blocks this advertisement, in which the script checks to see if the advertisement loaded. If not, the alert is displayed.

That is strange, in the next update I'll apply a conditional for the bots to not index that text.

Also it looks like Adblocks newest update allows to block Alert Messages. I will do further research to see if this affects my product in terms of the alert or blocking method.

Just an update, ABP has released new list which remove adblock warnings. However this script still works.

More than likely a caching issues - could be internet cache or a caching system you are using with vBulletin. Make sure they are cleared.

This doesn't detect Avast Antivirus Adblock.

Any way to get it to work with that?

I Have tested this version and after I purchased the pro version in your page, and I can see that this version is the 0.3.0 and here you have the 0.3.2.

And in your website https://sellfy.com/p/ifCL/ you write that the version is 3.0 ¿?¿?¿

The code of the navbar template in the pro version does not work, nothing appears, I had to put the old code of this mod


****NO SUPPORT -> MONEY LOST -> UNINSTALLED ****

I can issue a refund if you would like. I am still yet to figure out why I do not receive vBulletin emails for mods I have developed. I get all other emails from vB.org. If you would like shoot me a PM and I can troubleshoot the problem or issue a refund.

Do you have vBoptimize installed? If so please flush your cache.

I see Usergroup settings on the to do list, so does that mean at this point there is no way to disable this for a usergroup? They are a paid group and all ads are set to not show to them, but this alert still shows up. Clearly I can't use this mod if the alert is showing up to people that already pay for an ad free experience.
Thanks!

Well. One way to think of it is - if there are no ads for them - they could/should turn off their ad blocker. Then they would not see the message.

Are there any options for this? I can't find anything in the ACP

Also, users are reporting a pop up on their Chrome browsers on mobile devices, even without any adblock.
