Getting started

  • Click on the “Adblock Notify” menu
  • Follow instructions, every option is documented 😉

Plugin installation - Adblock Notify Plugin for WordPress

How the plugin works

You can notify users with an activated Adblocker software by THREE ways !

  • A pretty cool and lightweight Modal Box with a custom content : the COMPLIANT solution
  • A simple redirection to the page of your choice : the AGRESSIVE solution
  • A custom alternative message where your hidden ads would normally appear : the TRANSPARENT solution

Only one of the two first options can be activated at the same time. The third one is standalone and can be setting up independently.
You can easily switch between them without losing your options.

Adblock Notify nativally uses cookies for a better user experience and a less intrusive browsing of your site. It means visitors will see the Modal Box only once or be redirected to your custom page once.
You can deactivate them, however if your visitor has an activated adblocker software they will see a modal box or get a redirection on every visited page.

Adblock Notify Stats widget is available on your admin dashboard (if not visible, go to the top menu and visit “Screen Options”).

Alternative Message

You can insert a custom message where your hidden ads would normally appear by clonning orignal ads div containers.

Note: Some minimal HTML knowledge is required to set up this functionality.

What does “Clone ad container” mean?

It means you can ask Adblock Notify Plugin to copy the CSS properties of the element that contains your ad to a new element which will not be hidden by an adblocker software. With this process, your design should not break.
The new element will be the same type (DIV,SPAN,etc.) as its source, and will have the .an-alternative class.

Available options are:

  • Custom Mode: Will try to catch all the CSS rules defined in your theme files, and let you choose which ones to keep (see Custom Mode CSS properties).
  • Soft Mode (Recommended): Will try to catch all the CSS rules defined in your theme files, and add them to the new created element. If the browser does not support this feature, it will try Hard Mode fetching.
  • Hard Mode: Will try to fetch all the elements CSS rules based on browser CSS compilation (not reading directly in your CSS files). This option may add a lot of inline CSS rules to your newly created element.

This feature is performed through Javascript (+jQuery) and is 95% functional on all modern browser even on IE8+. For the 5% left, the plugin will drop potential JS errors and insert .an-alternative div.
Tested and works great on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE8+

What’s appended if I don’t turn on this option?

The plugin will append a new “clean” DIV element with .an-alternative class just before the advert container. You can add your own custom rules with the Custom CSS field.

  1. I have notice on bottom of my blog
    Notice: Undefined index: anCookie in /home/dzookyeu/public_html/wp-content/plugins/adblock-notify-by-bweb/adblock-notify-functions.php on line 107

    • Hello,
      What a constructive comment… how can I help if you only say that !?
      It works well for me, 4.4.1 was a minor update to fix some issues on the core. Empty your browser cache and let me know.

  2. Bonjour,

    Voyant que vous cherchez des avis concernant l’utilisation de votre plugin sur des sites utilisant ssl, je me permet de laisser un commentaire.

    Sur mon site (actu-moteurs.com), le popup n’apparaît pas.

    Auriez-vous une idée du problème?

    Bien à vous,


    • Bonjour Nathan,
      En effet, votre retour m’intéresse. Cependant, je ne suis pas sûr que le SSL soit le problème car je vois que vous avez des erreurs JS. C’est peut-être tout simplement la raison pour laquelle le plugin ne fonctionne pas.
      Bonne fin de journée.

  3. Need help with the Alternative Message. I enabled it but it somehow does not show the message where the ads are hidden.

    • So you have an error, and it doesn’t seems to be related to adblock notify.
      Sorry I can’t help on that.

    • Inspect your page in Chrome with Right Click + inspect element. Then go to the console tab and copy/past here what you see.
      I thing this is due to a javascript error in your admin area.

  4. Thanks Brice. I’m using Jetpack for view analytics, but they are pretty much on par with Google Analytics. The admin views are pretty insignificant in respect to total traffic – probably half a percent at most. Is there a way to have the plugin load earlier so that views/adblocks are calculated without a total page load?

  5. Hi Brice – I’ve had this running a couple of days but the view stats are very different to the standard WordPress stats. It’s reporting only 1% of the views, so I’m concerned that the Adblock percentages aren’t accurate.

    I’ve just followed the standard install so no real configuration changes. Is there anything else I should look at to try and have it report accurately?


    • Hi Simon,
      What are the “standards WordPress stats” you are talking about ?
      Adblock Notify stats are based on fully loaded page only, that may be a cause of a thin gap, but not a so big one.
      Another important point is that Adblock Notify does not logged the superadmin page’s views.

  6. it not works any more
    for website blocked by filter
    i tried it (with two website same config, cloudflare..)in one it works (new domain) in the second no)
    i used random selector edit new text, Disable Rocket Loader on CloudFlare..)

    • Did you try to flush your WP cache after re-generating the random selector ?
      Can you provide your URL ?

  7. Is there way to display message like in Non-Wordpress website? i was try to find a code like this to display inline popup message to the user who has enable the adblocker, but no luck.


    • It looks like your scripts are not includes properly in your theme. Adevertissement.js is not blocked by the adblocker because it URL is pass as data-rocketsrc and not as a conventional script src. Plus, script type is text/rocketscript and not text/javascript which may cause the issue.

    • Hi Dzooky,
      Admin users are already excluded from statistics, but logged in users with another role are tracked.

    • I don’t understand why you post this comment ? Is that a question ? Did you try the plugin ? Do you notice that a random selector is generated to prevent this kind of things ?
      + The aim of this plugin is not to block acces to a web page, but to notify users that they are killing the site they are reading.
