Can I stop Ad Blockerer users?

NO! This plugin does not completly block Ad Blockerer users, it only uses a passive approach, and it will always be that way.

Is it working with Google Adsense Ads?

Yes, and probably with all kinf of content hidden by an Ad Blockerer software.

Is it compatible with caching systeme

Yes it is. Depend on parameters…

The plugin is activated and setting up, but nothing append.

First check if the “Random selectors and files” option is checked.
Then purge all cache and rebuild your minify, then check again.
You can also try to open a new private tab to have a new “clean” test environment.
If you don’t have any caching/minify plugin, it is mostly due to your theme which does not contain the required wp_footer() function in the footer.php file.

Reviews

works ok, but slows down page complete

Noticed a 3 second delay to my page load complete timings in Google Analytics. Took a closer look, and this plugin was triggering a call to admin-ajax.php that was taking almost 3 seconds to complete.

This is probably more an issue with my host (hostgator shared) than the plugin, but can’t afford to slow my page load complete time by 50%.

Plugin itself seems to work as advertised, just my page load speed is more important than the 10% of my users who are using adblockers.

dishonest plugin

i don’t like this. users who use adblock, use it because they don’t wanna see ads.
users who don’t wanna see ads, aren’t potential customers for companies who show their ads on your website.
by blocking content from / annoying users with adblock, you make them disable it, thus, making you the creator some cents, while you are stealing that from actual advertisers, because no conversion from those impression will occur. this is why even google doesn’t block ad blockers. they want the paying customers (the companies who pay for their ads to show up) to get quality service aka users who are actually interested in seeing ads.
the 1 star is because it has the option to show hidden ads, that is NOT COOL. that is basically stealing money from advertisers. and wanting to know my php info on my server? and my plugin list. i can’t even…
SHADY plugin at best

excellent plug-in

Works again with version 2.0.11

I would like to thank the whole team for your excellent support and I therefore recommend this plug-in

Thank you
