I wish to announce that I have released a wordpress plugin named “Eazy Ad Unblocker”. You can find this plugin at the following URL: https://wordpress.org/plugins/eazy-ad-unblocker/
Now, to tell you what this plugin does. Suppose you own a wordpress site and have painstakingly put advertisements on it. Now many of your visitors don’t even look at your ads, let alone clicking on it. Why? Because they install browser extensions that block those ads from being shown on your site!
What “Eazy Ad Unblocker” basically does is to detect if an adblocker is active on the page seen by the visitors. If an adblocker is active, a modal popup shows up on the screen and prevents your visitors from browsing your website in any way, asking them to either deactivate the adblocker or whitelist your site. There is an option in the form of a close button on the popup, so that the visitors to your site do not get locked out completely. The plugin only detects ad blockers. It does not check if ads are actually there on the page.
Advanced and tech-savvy visitors may try to delete the popup and background overlay through web developer tools, inspect element and the like. This is countered effectively by the plugin. Right-clicking in the web page will fail
to invoke the context menu. Trying to invoke web dev tools by using keyboard shortcuts in the web page will also fail.
You will see this feature on many news sites, which implore users to deactivate adblockers or whitelist the site, telling them that the site they are viewing uses adverts for much needed revenue.
As a user of this plugin, you can configure the title, descriptive text and opacity of the modal popup shown to your visitors. You can completely black out your website content partially visible in the popup background by setting opacity to 100 %. You can add photos, videos and audio clips to the body content of the popup. Only formats supported by HTML5 will work in audio and video with this popup. You can also configure whether to show a close button on the top right of
the popup or not.
The plugin supports internationalization, both in the popup content and the wp-admin screen. You can preview the functioning of this plugin at https://myplugins.net/demo/
