This was a commissioned product curtesy of a lesser known user Kwikms. Who had came to me knowing exactly what he was looking for, and something he truly felt the community would appreciate. That's right he wanted me to make something not only for himself, but for you as well!

His specifications were:
  • Block all images other than the first image to users using adblocking software.
  • An admin option for choosing which usergroups this would apply to.
  • Do not block smileys in post.

His envision was to have a sort of spoiler feel like "look we have good content, but you need to disable your adblocker if you want to see any more."

DRC - Adblock Image Block
was born!

This is by no means a "perfect" solution (as with any adblock detection, there are always ways around them.) but it is a deterrent, and most users aren't too tech savey to bypass them.

- While testing, I standardly do not use adblockers. So images were caching for me and it seemed the product was not working for me when it in fact was. Simply clearing my cache solved that issue.

- There are adblockers that will not block false ads, thus not triggering the adblock detection.
I will not list these adblockers because I do not believe in them but the bigger known, and most commonly used adblockers will trigger (they don't bypass detection).

Want to see a live example? You can check out his site here (hope he doesn't mind, lol)
Or on my site HERE (note: my version is modified do to my heavily modified vBulletin)
You must enable an adblocker to see anything =/ (the irony)

Hmm doesn't appear to work on my vB 4 site. However, I had to make some PHP editing for my vB 4 to be compatible for PHP 7.4
