We're an intelligent link management company, and recently we've run into an issue where EasyList is blocking short-links that contain our domain.

We're unfamiliar with the protocol here but any help getting our domain removed from the blocked list would be much appreciated!

You should provide the steps to reproduce your issue.

there is only 1 filter in easylist regarding your domain
pcgamesn.com##a[href^="http://geni.us/"]

and another 1 in easyprivacy
||geni.us/snippet.js

It's about the tacking script ?

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.geni.us/snippet.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {
var tsid =12345;
Genius.amazon.convertLinks(tsid, false, "http://buy.geni.us"); });
</script>
e.g http://www.sirgo.com/

Apologies! I was unclear about the actual case where this was happening. It looks like Adblock is preventing our JS snippet from firing.

Here's an example page from PCWorld where our snippet is installed and getting stopped by EasyList.

Thanks!

well, it's complicated:

You'd need:

for easylist:
pcworld.com#@#.product-sidebar

easyprivacy (otherwise the link is pointing directly to amazon and not to ...buy.geni.us):
@@||cdn.georiot.com/snippet.js$script,domain=pcworld.com

for ublock privacy (for uBo users @gorhill @okiehsch ):
@@||googletagmanager.com/gtm.js$script,domain=pcworld.com

Well, for example the first whitelisted element could be seen as ad, I don't know if the easylist authors want to add these filters ..

Hi Intense, thanks for the response. We're not super familiar with how these lists work, so please excuse our ignorance!

We had a similar issue a few years ago, which was resolved at the time. viewtopic.php?f=64&t=26427

Is it because georiot.com still exists in easylist_adservers?

To reiterate what was said in the previous thread, our code is NOT ads related in any way and the purpose of the snippet is to find, globalize, and affiliate all iTunes, Amazon, and Microsoft Play links on a person's site. It is the simple way to create those links instead of having to manually go through your site and manually change each one. This is very similar to both Skimlinks and Viglinks, which appear to already be whitelisted.

Any more light you could shed on this for us would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi everyone, is it possible to get a bump for this thread? We're still having issues with cdn.geni.us being blocked, and it's starting to effect more of our users.

If we could get cdn.geni.us added to easyprivacy_trackingservers that would probably resolve our problem, as the previous issue was resolved by having our old domain cdn.georiot.com added to the same list.

It would be much appreciated if we could get this resolved as soon as possible! Thanks!

Bump please! (And our apologies for sounding like a broken record)

We're still having issues with cdn.geni.us being blocked, and it's beginning to cause problems for other users.

If we could get cdn.geni.us added to easyprivacy_trackingservers that would probably resolve our problem, as the previous issue was resolved by having our old domain cdn.georiot.com added to the same list.

Please see this thread for more info: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=26427

It would be much appreciated if we could get this resolved as soon as possible! Thanks!
