clarification:
Entering into a debate about the ethics that each one has on the topic of advertising on web pages, is not the purpose of this thread.
I have limited myself to creating a tool that can be used by anyone who considers it. ;)

You might want to read up on Including CSS and JS since in this form your extension certainly won't get validated.

Apart from that, interesting extension. Your approach is a bit rough though; it makes the site unusable when an adblocker is active. Many sites just display a message instead; asking to disable the adblocker. You even might want to consider to show only the first post of topics with activated adblocker but completely disabling will probably just alienate the visitors.

I agree with Ger. Blocking the whole forum is bad idea. Most visitors will just leave the forum instead of disabling the adblocker. (I'm one of them)

One question: What does a user run away from?
1.- To a website that contains advertising.
2.- To a website that requires payment of a fee to be able to use it.
3.- To a website that is free and has no advertising - which believe it or not is the still the majority of sites.

it's a nice extension, as long as there is a switch in place.
I personally don't care about an advice if I can get rid of it asap.

Well that doesn't make any sense. Facebook runs ads and sponsored posts and through its cornering of the market has reduced the average CPM of banner ads and taken considerable traffic from third party websites like forums, in turn requiring them to run more banner ads and more intrusive kinds of ads to cover hosting costs.

I do not fully understand your question ... Let's see ... :roll:
The Javascript code is still present in a JS file that is generated dynamically from PHP ... :P
In 1.0.2 there was an option to warn people if they have disabled javascript. But in 1.0.3. its gone.

Any chance it could include which specific forum it is active in? For example, I don't really mind if members block ads for most of our site, but then I do want the message to display in the classifieds (personal sales) forum.

Leaving the debate alone, it would be great to assign what usergroups this is shown to. For example, if I have a role for those who have donated, it would be awesome to hide this notice for them. Also, it'd be great to not see this as an administrator of the site as well.

Any chance of adding this feature?

I was able to put together a solution for now to alleviate myself from seeing the notice. For anyone wanting to hide this from your moderators and/or administrators, you can make two small file edits to be able to achieve this. Please note that one of these changes adds code to your functions.php file, which will most likely be updated, so these edits will need to be made again if you upgrade your forum software before this functionality is added to the extension itself.
Step 1

Edit: /ext/Picaron/AntiAdblock/styles/all/template/event/overall_header_content_before.html
Find (Near Line 1)

Code: Select all

<!-- IF ANTIADBLOCK_ACTIVE and ANTIADBLOCK_COOKIE and ANTIADBLOCK_MODO > 2 -->
To Hide From Admins Only
Replace With

Code: Select all

<!-- IF ANTIADBLOCK_ACTIVE and ANTIADBLOCK_COOKIE and ANTIADBLOCK_MODO > 2 and S_USER_IS_NOT_A -->
To Hide From Moderators & Admins
Replace With

Code: Select all

<!-- IF ANTIADBLOCK_ACTIVE and ANTIADBLOCK_COOKIE and ANTIADBLOCK_MODO > 2 and S_USER_IS_NOT_M -->
Step 2
Edit: /includes/functions.php

Find (Near Line 4457)

Code: Select all

		'S_USER_LOGGED_IN'		=> ($user->data['user_id'] != ANONYMOUS) ? true : false,
Replace With

Code: Select all

		'S_USER_IS_M'			=> ($auth->acl_get('m_')) ? true : false,
		'S_USER_IS_NOT_M'		=> ($auth->acl_get('m_')) ? false : true,
		'S_USER_IS_A'			=> ($auth->acl_get('a_')) ? true : false,
		'S_USER_IS_NOT_A'		=> ($auth->acl_get('a_')) ? false : true,
		'S_USER_LOGGED_IN'		=> ($user->data['user_id'] != ANONYMOUS) ? true : false,
Now, with any templated files, you can use conditional logic with regards to the user status:
  • S_USER_IS_M
    • User is a Moderator
  • S_USER_IS_NOT_M
    • User is not a Moderator
  • S_USER_IS_A
    • User is an Administrator
  • S_USER_IS_NOT_A
    • User is not an Administrator
