Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
My question is this, short of shutting of my java control is there any affective pop up stoppers out there?
I am running panicware and the new google tool bar and they both catch some, but not all. Any suggestions would be great.
Sticky me if you would like to know the url of the company I am looking to block. Mods if its ok to post it let me know.
I am not visiting the site. Apparently they are a marketing company that has an aggressive pop up campaign. Its about 10 different sites and sometimes sites I have never had a problem with.
Right now as I type I am on the phone looking to straighten this thing out.
When I use IE6, I run a program called Stealth Ray that stuffs all the pop-ups. It was offered when I reserved a domain on GoDaddy. It was so cheap I bought without checking it out. I've been using it for a couple of months. It is effective and hasn't had any adverse effects on my computer so far.
I am moving to pop unders on my sites as these don't appear to get blocked.
Yes, I realize the hypocrasy of running pop-ups and unders on my sites while blocking them myself, however, while they continue to generate significant revenue I will continue to tun with them.
The best banner ad suppression program I have found is AdsOff. It is also free.
I run both at once, and it really increases my browsing enjoyment.
Do popup blockers block all popup windows or will ones triggered by the onclick action be disabled as well - I have popups for an online gallery that only popup when 'called' so I'd be very disappointed if they did not function.
