misblocked thumbnails

Post by weazeal » Mon Sep 04, 2017 6:45 am

Hi, thank you for your efforts in ad blocking work.

Code: Select all

##a[href*=".com/?p="] > img[src$=".gif"]
this is a rule in Easy List, but I think there's some situations this rule mis-block my posts thumbnail.

For example:

Code: Select all

<div class="thumbnail">
	<a href="https://www.mysite.com/?p=1" rel="nofollow" title="Hello world!">
		<img src="https://www.example.com/wp-content/themes/WPTheme/images/thumbnail.gif" alt="Hello world!">
These are some lines of html code of my frontpage post thumbnail part. Obviously this gif pic is not an ad. But the rule above is mis-blocking this gif thumbnail.

".com/?p=" this is the typical (or call it Plain) type of Permalink in WordPress powered sites. So I think huge members of sites will be affected by it.

So would please check it out wheather the rule is necessary or change it?
