Mod Version: v2.0024, by vijayninel (Member) vijayninel is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.7 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 8
Released: 27 Nov 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Template Edits  

Ad blocking plugins like Adblock Plus are one of the most popular addon fors browsers today. However these addons deny publishers revenue to operate their sites.

One way to force users to disable Adblock is to deny them site content until they disable adblock. The following template modification is the vBulletin implementation for the antiblock script from http://antiblock.org/ . This script will prevent users from viewing thread content and ask them to disable Adblock.

Implementing this hack is very easy. In your style manager select the style that you are using and open

Show Thread Templates > SHOWTHREAD

In showthread go to the bottom of the page and just before


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Paste the following code.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's it.

The code is for v2.0024 and may be updated as adblock develops countermeasures for it.

To further customise the script please see this link. http://antiblock.org/?p=script

Demo: http://antiblock.org/?p=script&demo

Please click install if you want info on updates.

Actually they deny "publishers" using your system resources and feeding you potential adware, spyware, junkware and other crap. ABP is a blessing.

You are free to block ads. Publishers are free to block content to you.

It takes money and effort for publishers to bring that content to you and ads pay for that. If it were not for the ads then you would be paying subscriptions for a lot of content.

"Publishers" do have the right to keep people off their site, that is for sure.

Google speak with forked tongue. They may say that out loud but inside they really want every ad to be seen by everybody.

Personally I think it's a great mod. I don't have any ads on my forum but if I did then I would use it.

Thanks it's working pretty good. (using vb4).

Had a look at the code and it looks like he's putting his own ads there. A big hell no in my book. Disabled until I remove this crap out of it.

I installed this on a test forum and I don't see any ads being displayed. Do you have screenshots of this mod displaying an actual ad?

That code might simply be sites that "Ad Block" is known to block and it may be testing if they are indeed blocked to determine of ad-block is running.

I didn't analyze the code but that is my theory since I'm not seeing any ads, just a message.

What utter nonsense. There are no ads of anyone there and anyone is welcome to verify it. Remove the crap from your head first.

I have to add another thing. I have been using ABP for awhile now and have noticed it even blocks people images on there custom themes.

Nice going to forums and you cant even see there icons next to thread categories.
