Need a filter explanation

Post by AdblockBender » Tue Sep 06, 2016 7:42 am

Could anybody explain what this filter is supposed to block?


The confusing part is "|*|". As I read it - it should end with /adiframe and start with |adtech at the same time. Is it possible?
Haven't seen links with ";" in the end either.

The explanation will be greatly appreciated.

That filter blocks URL containing the string /adiframe| somewhere before where URL contains the string |adtech;.
(Yes, such URLs really do exist so I'd guess the filter is as intended.)

The | (pipe) character is only an anchor when at the beginning or end of filters, in the middle it's just a | character.

an example :

•► Before posting, to find your answer fast, read Forum « RULES » and use « Search »
••► Don't post clickable links » use inline text bbcode notation « [ C ] » or « [ code ] »
•••► Use, or to upload your screenshots
