This is a minor port, I am working now to fully port everything over along with a premium version.

I use Google Adsense on my website and considering Google Adsense is not malicious, I feel no need for adblocking software of any kind.

Therefor I have created this system which will alert members that ads are used to support the server. Wait... What's that? You don't want to annoy a member with constant alerts? No worries! This system works off of cookies, so once the member views the alert, they won't be bothered by it anymore.

1.) Upload the contents of the "upload" folder to your forums root directory.
2.) Perform template edits
3.) Mark Installed. =]

After add:

Q: Why is it not working?
A: Make sure you uploaded everything and installed the mod. Also make sure template edits are completed.

Q: How does this work?
A: I've used adblocking software against them. I've made a fake advertisement which is never displayed on the forums, but is within the coding. Since the soul purpose of adblocking software is to of course... block ads. It blocks this advertisement, in which the script checks to see if the advertisement loaded. If not, the alert is displayed.

Color now fades when hovering over alert

Cookie system brought to free edition

I installed this again, and had to do the template edits myself since the code was not added to the navbar template... so this means I uninstall the product, right? With the code manually entered and the product uninstalled, the yellow/red alert shows even without an adblocker running, and my ads are showing on the page fine. I'll also note that the product was showing my version was 0.3.1 even though the one I downloaded and installed was 0.3.2.

No. If you want it to work correctly, re-import the product XML file.

Warning: Uninstalling this product does not undo the automatic template edits (or at least it didn't for me). You still need to go to the bottom of the navbar template and remove the notice.
