wowhead.com

Post by mysticalos » Sat Oct 21, 2017 3:49 am

The MonkeyBroker redirect scripts on wowhead.com are brutal. almost EVERY single page runs the script and causes every page to reload. yes adblockers still catch ads even despite the hackery, but it'd be SUPER nice if you could create a rule for the malicious MonkeyBroker javascripts themselves that trigger the redirect on almost every single page.

Test these filters

Code: Select all

@@||wowhead.com^$generichide
@@||wowhead.com^*&ad_channel=$media,domain=wowhead.com
@@||cdn.doubleverify.com^*.js$media,domain=wowhead.com
@@||cdn.revcontent.com^*.css$media,domain=wowhead.com
@@||s0.2mdn.net^*.css$media,domain=wowhead.com

@@||c.betrad.com^*.js$media,domain=wowhead.com
@@||cdn.springserve.com^*.js$media,domain=wowhead.com
An alternative is to browse wowhead.com using firefox or install uBo + uBo Extra.

Those seem to have killed redirects. Much smoother experience. thanks. Should definitely get some of that into easylist!

I don't even mind the sites ads so much but reloading every page twice when the page is already inefficient with bandwidth is a no no.

I've come up with these custom filters (they work,) but sometimes you have to reload the page twice. They go way out of their way to try
and stop you from using an adblocker (constant page reloads with redirects.) The problem is the advertisements make the page lag really bad,
so it's not worth whitelisting them no matter what they tell you (very spammy website.) It never used to be this bad on wowhead. I would've whitelisted them if the advertisements were more acceptable...

Code: Select all

www.wowhead.com##DIV[id="sidebar-wrapper"][class="sidebar-wrapper"]
www.wowhead.com##DIV[id="sidebar-wrapper"]
www.wowhead.com##DIV[id="ad-vertical"][class="banner-ad"]
www.wowhead.com##IFRAME[id="MB-iframe-vertical-1"][class="mbIFrame vertical"]
www.wowhead.com##IFRAME[id="MB-iframe-vertical-1"][class="mbIFrame vertical"][src="about:blank"]
www.wowhead.com##DIV[id="ad-horizontal"][class="banner-ad"]
www.wowhead.com##DIV[class="MB-StackedMedRect"]

Here's the website:

Three times today when I visit a ZAM site, all of the CSS elements are stripped. Not sure how many reports Sas has gotten, but I've stumbled across 3 other complaints without much effort.

Unfortunately ABP / AB cannot manage the nasty advertising used by those sites.

Disable ABP / AB, install these 2 (work together)

This site is now implementing third party objects from

Code: Select all

||datacoral.com^$third-party
||datacoral.io^$third-party
Get insights, data driven products, and even the foundation for new services in a single afternoon.
sounds sufficiently shady to me to add it to a block list.

They seem to have fresh new redirects/forced page reloads

Code: Select all

http://www.wowhead.com/news=283858/blizzard-on-battle-for-azeroth-classes-current-design-and-upcoming-changes-to-fr
Loading even with all above rules and latest easylist results in forced page reloads by one of the page scripts.

Not an option for Safari/webkit. Generally have to block the scripts directly

Hey there. The ad content on

Code: Select all

http://www.wowhead.com
keeps popping up no matter what I do. Updating the lists doesn't seem to have any affect. Anyway, thank you for all you. Every other site is perfect.

"es.wowhead.com" and "ko.wowhead.com" have been removed from Malware domains list.
Hi,
after review we will be delisting the domains in our next update later today.
Thanks,

No issue for me. Go into uBo logger and see what's blocked.
