autotrader.co.uk [Rej]

Post by RobC » Fri Sep 01, 2017 11:21 am

Afternoon,
I've noticed our search widgets are being blocked on our partner sites when the EasyList is enabled in adblockers:

Example pages:

Code: Select all

https://www.topgear.com/car-reviews/ford/focus
http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/cars/
https://www.driving.co.uk/
http://www.reddrivingschool.com/
https://www.thesun.co.uk/motors/
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/motoringvideo/
Could you take a look an whitelist the widget to appear when on these domains.

Kind Regards
Rob

the widget:

Maybe only the registered users are able to see that widget (disabling the adblockers) ?
You should post here the log your adblocker produced on the telegraph page.

However, for the rest of pages above an easylist auhor has been notified.

Are you saying you still have issues even on the other pages (other than telegraph) using the filters above ?

Checked http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/motoringvideo/

Code: Select all

@@||partners.autotrader.co.uk/widget/ 
( on its own has No Effect)
but with

Code: Select all

@@||s.telegraph.co.uk/international/autotrader 
it works

So need to add

Code: Select all

@@||partners.autotrader.co.uk/widget/
@@||s.telegraph.co.uk/international/autotrader 
To fix the Telegraph

If an Easylist author can look at the other ones then that would be great.

@RobC Should i understand that this widget is not an advertisement? Why?

That's is correct, its a search widget which allows the user to specify a make model and postcode which directs them to the desired content on AutoTrader.

I can't see what should differentiate this so-called "widget" from an advertisement. The filters will not be removed.
